4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
light golden with slight hop haze and with small fizzy white topper, modest lacing. one of the finest aromas ever on an ipa, all sorts of citrus and light fruity/flowery. I think it smells the closest to Heady Topper I can recall at the moment. The mixed malts really make on nice scaffold to hang the hops on with no overbearing carapils to ruin things. medium carbonation, refreshing and quaffable all day long.

Excellent IPA. I’m an IPA guy, and my two favorites are Two Hearted (OK, not an IPA, but a pale ale) and Zombie Dust. Lagunitas Sucks is in between those two. Citrusy hops and a lighter palate. I really enjoyed it and will be finding a sixer or two to have at home. On tap at Riverside Tap Room.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a near clear, light pale copper-hued body with an inch of white suds.
Smell: Heady, fruity notes of tropical fruits, varied citruses with pith included, a little liquid soap, and some resinous grassy undertones.
Taste: Pale malts, a bit of breadiness, and a low, brief sweetness imparted. Resiny, grassy, floral, but rather fruity, with tastes of pithy tangerine, mango, white grapefruit, pineapple. Moderate bitterness. Sourish, fruit juice quality with a sliver of resin and soapiness on the drying, bitterish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Another hoppy-something from Lagunitas.
