    My go-to is Little Sumpin' Sumpin', but my favorite releases are Undercover Investigation Shut-Down, Sucks, and Imperial Red. Shame we won't be seeing that one this year.

    Sucks, Lil' Sumpin Sumpin, Brown Shugga

    In that order. It's amazing the amount of flavor they pack into those beers. Still anxiously awaiting that "year round" Sucks to hit Southeastern VA.

    I like everything I've had from them, but I guess my favorite year round would be Little Sumpin' Sumpin' and rotating would be Undercover. Sucks is awesome too, but very close in taste to Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.

    I like all of the ones I have tried so far. Which includes their Pils, IPA, and Cappuccino Stout.

    I'm a big fan of Lagunitas. Not a big fan of the Cappuccino Stout or the Dogtown Pale Ale. They're good but they didn't stand out.

    I like Union Ja-.., woops, it's called Hop Stoopid when Lagunitas makes it!

    And Undercover Investigation ties with Sucks for favorite rotateables (yes, rotateables)

    In order for me

    1. Maximus
    2. Sucks
    3. Hop Stoopid and Little Sumpin Sumpin
    4. Brown Shugga, Undercover investigation shutdown
    5. IPA and Dogtown Pale
    6. All others

    Either way you look at it they are all above 4/5 for my opinion... Awesome brewery and the quality for the size of the brewery is simply top notch!

    Such a great brewery. I love it when a brewer can consistently make beer that is of great quality at great prices, and is widely available.

    Favorites that I've had so far? Sucks and Little Sumpin'...with a close nod to Brown Sugga' and Imperial Red Ale.

    Sucks is pretty wonderful. Also, work with a client in the SF bay area and can usually get their IPA everywhere when I'm out that way, which is not a bad deal at all.

    Little Sumpin' Sumpin' is probably my go-to.

    The 32ozes of Sucks will probably change that though, I don't think I'll be able to resist buying a couple every time I see them.

    The only thing that sucks about Laguntas is that the sucks sells out so fast. All their beers are very good.

    I loved the imperial red. I hope it makes it back into the rotation.
    Sucks is great
    Hop Stoopid is very good.

    Sucks, Undercover Investigation, Imperial Red, Brown Shugga, Hop Stoopid, Lil Sumpin Sumpin, WTF, Lil Sumpin Wild, Maximus in that order

    all are incredible, I even dig their stouts. it's just not their forte.

    I think for me, and it appears for others too, the list for beers I'm not a huge fan of Lagunitas would be shorter than the list of beers I throughly and ferociously enjoy from them. For the fun of it though. Lagunitas sucks, don't be hop stoopid and pour a lil' sumpin' sumpin' of that brown shugga on me or shutdown and run for the pils...

    Sucks, sucks, and more sucks. Fine also maybe WTF.... then more sucks.

    there is no substitute for sucks... Many other DIPAs are good (like resin, palate wrecker, double jack), but they don't suck quite as much.
    oh how I look forward to it entering continual production!

    I love em all except Censored. The Daytime is great for yard work without being blitzed and going to the hospital and trying to explain how it happened and why? The beer breath is a give away....from what i've been told.

    Thank my stars I live somewhat close and access is not a problem.

    Bring on the cans already!!!

    I forgot to mention the extra mile they go. I ordered 2 jars (glasses) and a growler for a total of $11. They still sent me a bunch of extra stickers, coasters, bottle cap magnets, and a receipt signed "Thank you, Preston" in handwriting.

    That's nothing crazy, but it showed me they value their customers.
