4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
40oz.er in brown paper bag to shaker glass, pours deep golden, monster frothy off white head. Awesome lace and retention. Aroma pine and caramel. Taste is awesomely balanced for a strong ale, moderately sweet, pleasingly bitter. Full bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes long and bitter with a slight alcohol presence. Tasting notes of plum, raisin, pine, lemon, grass, I could go on. Sucks nice!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I’ve been wanting Sucks for a long time, now. Wow, that sounds dirty... With the innuendo out of the way, let’s go right into it. Appearance is like a beautiful IPA: hazy orange with a frothy, long-lasting head. Aroma reveals floral hops, caramel, pine resin, juniper, and citrus. Taste showcases candy-like malt, citrusy hops redolent of orange cream, toffee, spiciness, and a boozy bite. Mouthfeel is crisp with a stomach-warming alcohol finish. Even in the eclectic Strong Ale category, Sucks is entirely unique. It’s tricky to describe and damn hard to pigeonhole into any one style. Sucks is an Imperial IPA/American Strong Ale thing with lots of West Coast attitude. It’s... Ah, shit. It’s really good, okay? Leave me to it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 12 oz. A hazy, pale orange-golden beer wtih a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is really lovely, with pine cones, grapefruit and resins, and a whiff of malts. Perhaps a bit one dimensional, but damn lovely. The flavor feels sweet in a way, but it’s very dry on the palate. It’s bitter, full-bodied and with a soft carbonation. Pine cones, grapefruit and a peachy touch in the flavor. Hints of alcohol. Lasting bitter, fruity and resiny finish. Wonderful indeed, wouldn’t mind a steady supply of this back home. 150607

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is floral hops and resin. Flavor is rye and resin, slightly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Has the aroma of a double IPA, but comes off maltier and less bitter. It’s a good beer.

Keg at Brewdog, Bristol, Saturday 30th May 2015 Beautiful clear warm gold with a sticky white head. Soft in mouth, really quite sweet but lots of tropical flavours. Enjoyed this, a touch sweet was the only real negative. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle. Citrus and pine hops in aroma. Good lookin cloudy gold with lasting head. Not the hop Bomb I expected, but I taste the citrus / pine hops with a very creamy malt base. Also tasting notes of peach, pepper and maybe a hint of coriander. Very easy to drink for a strong ale. As usual, another excellent beer from LBC.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden copper hue with a film of sticky foam. Resinous pine and toffee dominate the flavour, some hoppy fruits going on as well, nice sweetness from the malt. Flavour is very bitter and hop-forward, soapy, toffee, bit of vanilla actually. Sweet indeed. Big mouthfeel and nice, soft, carbonation. Top stuff!
