    Great response. Gotta love Lagunitas sesnse of humor and not taking themselves too seriously.

    Hop Stoopid is always under $4 in Asheville, I think it was $3.29 last time I got it at Ingles. Brown Shugga is $10. :D

    It is all packaged and ready to go. Probably making its way down the West Coast as we speak. It is too bad my local place still has cases of Day Time they are trying to get rid of =/.

    I actually did not take those pictures, so I sadly have yet to taste it. But they are posting updates about the beer on a Facebook support group that I follow called Keep Lagunitas Sucks Year Round. You guys should check it out.

    Just a quick FYI--local beer bar here in Columbia, MD just put it on tap. I'm leaving to go guzzle it in 10 minutes!

    why would they make a 32 oz bottle????

    33.814 oz and I have myself a boot-worthy-beer in a bottle. C'mon, Lagunitas!

    On tap at Prime 16 in New Haven, CT. Had a glass last night. Seemed somewhat more refined than last years. Still plenty of pine and hop dankiness, but I seem to remember it more over the top last year - like a christmas tree full of skunks...

    Just found it at Whole Foods yesterday in IL. Immensely enjoyed it as a first time drinker of the beer. Will buy much more of this.

    I just bought the last sixer from a grocery store last night. This stuff is awesome and is moving at epic speed. I talked to the beverage manager and he said their entire allotment went in one day. Seeing as we are in the same state I expect allotments farther away to disappear even faster.

    It tastes like a blend of Simcoe and Citra. The bottles I have had are very aromatic with just enough punchy bitterness to scream west coast IPA. It is hard not to drink several due to the flavor though the alcohol content lets you know its time to take a break after about two.

    I just recently hoped, stoopidly you could say, on the Lagunitas band wagon. Brown Shugga, Lil' Sumpin, Lucky 13.....Man I love em. Can't wait to try something new. Delightful beer for the price. I need to get a kegorator.

    Does Sucks taste similar to Oskar Blues G'Knight Imperial Red Ale?

    Haven't seen it on the shelves yet here in NE Florida but had it on tap yesterday and it was great. Without question the best beer I've ever had from Lagunitas.
