4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/19/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, and earthy hops. Fantastic aromas with great hop complexity, balance, and strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, pine, floral, honey, grass, and herbal hop earthiness. Good amount of piney citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zests, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, pine, grass, honey, and herbal hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic hop complexity, with a nice malt balance supporting the big hops; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic IPA. Great hop complexity with nice malt balance; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

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)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is quite a lot of caramelly maltiness, but a lot of citrusy hoppiness as well. Taste is somewhat piney and rather resinous. Some caramel, but more citrus and mango grapefruit. Medium carbonation, rather full in the mouth. A nice sipper.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sweet fruity aroma. Cute and very well-hopped taste. Sweet bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. Heavenly taste. I just shiver when I drink it. I really miss word for this beer. This beer is as close to perfection as you can get according to me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange colored clear beer with big white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has fructosey sweet tropical fruits and berries, as well as piney hops and some caramel malts. Flavor is resinous bitter, citrusy and caramelly sweet. Palate is thick with moderate carbonation and stinging bitterness. Finishes with quite strong bitterness, leaving a sticky syrupy caramelly sweet, pale malty and resinous aftertaste. Gets progressively worse, aroma is better than flavor and aftertaste is the least good part of this. Still decent. Kind of a bridge between a DIPA and a Barley Wine. Still a bit too much syrupy caramel for me.
