Lagunitas Brown Shugga has a medium, cream-colored head, a clear, bubbly, copper appearance, and a good amount of bubble streams. The aroma is bold, sweet, dank barley malt and hop resin (think brown bread crust and slightly rotted spinach). Taste is of sweet, strong malt and fairly bittern hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium, and Lagunitas Brown Shugga finishes puckering and strong, yet mellow. RJT

Drank from a pint glass poured from a 32 ounce bottle, purchased from a conivent mart. Smells like beer and overly hoppy in all directions

Growler from local beer brewing shop. Clear reddish amber pour, medium head, not so much next day from growler. Beautiful aroma, floral pine lagunitas hops blended with brown sugar caramel. Taste is hops hand in hand with sweetness right out of the box. Caramel / grapefruit rind candy. By the time the solid bitter finish rolls around you realize youíve been seduced by this medium bodied Siren named Shugga.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet pine hop aroma. Has a copper and amber body with a solid two fingered head that has a faint off white color. Thick sweet port-like taste. Mild bitterness. Has a gentle warming sensation going down your throat. Heavy bodied as this is definitely in the sipping category. It goes down more gentle with each sip.

Tons of hop resin in the nose, and in the flavour. Dunno what variety but it reminds me of the Sierra Nevada pale ale hopping but much stronger. Pine cones and dark chocolate, leading to mint and herbs in the aftertaste. Lots of hops complexity. Iím really surprised that itís only 51 ibu.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is caramel, candied pine. Taste is thick malty sweet up front with a big hop flavor running through. The strange thing about this beer is how SWEET it is without being overly cloying. It gets better and better with every sip.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours copper with a big white head and lacing. The aroma is burnt sugar, hops, alcohol, and bread. The taste is burnt sugar, hops, yeast, and fruit. Itís pretty smooth on the palate. As it warms, the alcohol creeps up on you. It packs a decent punch.

355 mL bottle. Itís good, not great. itís too bad these greedy fuckers sold out to Heineken. I guess their whole "fuck the man" thing was a bunch of hypocritical bullshit. There are lots of true craft breweries out there making great beer. No need to patronize this macro any more.
