Remember back in the day when you would fall down the basement stairs drunk as shit at 4AM and be 100% convinced that you never woke your parents? Well, I just fell down the stairs and once again I am 100% convinced that they never heard because they live 30km away - still got the magic!
I feel great knowing that I pretty much bought the entire city supply and drank it all to myself - E-town crew loves me for this and so do I. Drink 72 beers and barely saved one for review because it was so god damn good. Make that 2 - I just drank the last surviving bottle on Earth that I left hanging around for my own funny time reminder. And yea, it still was AWESOME. So awesome. Rare beer does taste better! LOL. Rating goes back to early December 2011 and its just short notes as it was pretty much impossible to review this as it was just pure joy to drink it... even as I drained the entire city’s supply solo. tung: Piles of citrus - citrus that tears apart my mind on every freaking sip - oranges, rrgf, pine, grapefruit rind, cherry, floral greatness remeniscent ... how the hell is that spelt? - of fresh cut flowers, slight grain, honey, apricot, secretions of only the most heavenly of creatures, tropical fruits and soft malts. This beer has absolutely everything I want to smell. Hours... hours have been spent smelling this brewed treasure. Tasty bits: Aside from the outlandish amount of hops and citrus, sweetness and thickness there is a fuckload of malt backing this monster. Sweetness abounds. Pineapple flops around, pine goodness, peaches, lemon, mild caramel, something that might be spearmint, grapefruit, unique malt base darker than it normally is, orange, pepper, resin, light dose of brown sugar for the sweet base, aaaaaa soooo good! medium body that is supported both by the hop thickness and the healthy structure of yummo malts. Perfection. Find me another ASA that beats this and I will marry your daughter that resembles an ugly donkey.

Draught keg at Euston Tap. Could smell it across the bar as soon as it was poured - like peachy hops. When sniffed up close it’s more like a big whiff of full-on cat pee hiding beneath the tight creamy head. Huge fruit flavours without having too sweet or heavy a backbone. Peach, guava, mango, kiwifruit. Long fruity finish with a slight dryness at the end. Soft rather than acidic. Pretty yummy all round (understatement!).

Pours a nice amber gold, with a white head. Aroma has hops, with hints of apricot, caramel, and fruit. Not too dry not too sweet, creamy, and very drinkable. Taste is some hops, caramel, apricot, and the hints of fruit. Balanced taste. Nice.

32oz from a brown paper bag straight to the dome. Thanks jw. I don’t know what this beer looks like but in this paper bag I feel 18 again. Sugar and hops aroma eminate from the little hole in the bag. Tastes like I might be blind in about an hour. Thank you sir may I have another.

Om man dricker sig så full på Lagunitas Sucks att man måste sjukskriva sig dagen efter kan man åberopa force majeure. Det här är en naturkraft som ogiltigförklarar alla regelverk. "Fröjda er med bävan", som det står i Bibeln. Ett finare bevingat ord om den här upplevelsen kan man inte fånga i det grovmaskiga nät som språket utgör. "Man måste alltid vara berusad. Det avgör allt: det är den enda frågan."

Very very tasty. Well integrated complexity from the 4 grains. Pours a light golden with a chunky white head. Aromas are fantastic! Notes of some pine and tropical fruits, pineapple. Palate is smooth and round with great depth. Definitely living up to the hype here.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, medium gold, with a white head.
Hoppy, resiny aroma, spruce, apricot, caramel, grass, mineral, passion fruit, peach, faint yeast.
Off-dry, medium to full bodied, mid to high bitterness, creamy CO2.
Hoppy, resiny, faintly grainy taste, caramel, apricot, grass, butterscotch, spruce.
End slightly grainy, and with the tiniest hint of astringency. Feels as if the hops are slightly tired (whisps of cheese?). Otherwise pretty nice. (2014-07-20)

Lagunitas Sucks is a medium hazy copper amber liquid with a full thick head of off white bubbles. Cedar hops are strong on the front of the scent profile. There might be a bit of citrus as well. Taste is tangy on the front with cedar notes prevailing, some undertones of sweetness follow as the taste finishes with a touch of bitters. Body is lively with active carbonation. I like this beer a great deal. Wish i had picked up more.
