4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Reviewed 2/22/13.Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a nasty-looking dark piss color. The head is a two finger spoiled milk shade that looks like cottage fuckin’ cheese. Why is there so much ugly-ass lacing left on my glass?
S: This is full of gross melon, gross papaya, gross herbal pine, gross mango, and...well, it’s just gross. Smells like an awesome-- ERR I mean wet ass.
T: Yikes, and just when I thought it couldn’t get any nastier, it does! The opening is nothing but mellow-- I mean nasty tropical fruits. Bah, who really likes tropical fruits? It tastes like a damn rainforest! It finishes with a soft, malty sweetness, which totally sucks ’n’ stuff, too. And ewww, is that onion on the aftertaste? Who wants onion in their beer? NOT ME, GOOD SIR!
M: Light, delicate, subtle, and crisp - and it sucks. Yeah, it fuckin’ sucks. I’ve never stated my preference toward light and delicate DIPAs before in my life, you’re all nuts! /angryface I mean, sure, it’s drinkable, but that’s only because I want to get rid of it so quickly! Aw crap, I’m not near a drain...I guess I’ll just pour it into my mouth more. Because it fuckin’ sucks so much.
O: Yuck! Lagunitas Sucks indeed. It’s so bad I’m discouraging everyone out there of buying it...so I can snatch the remainder up for-- I mean, cuz it’s gross an’ shit. Yeah, that’s it. This is most definitely not a fantastic DIPA that I wish I could drink a case of, no, you guys are all reading into things WAY too much. Like I said, this sucks I WANT MORE I WANT MORE NOW!

Had a pint on tap at Ashley’s. Quite hoppy, a slight sweet edge on the finish. Solid, not my style.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a huge bubbly white head that leaves a lot of lacing behind. Aroma is big, sweet and hoppy, of brown sugar, malt, pine hope, and a hint of candied citrus. Rich taste, of candied citrus, malt, sugar, toffee, then picks up a big hoppy bite. Lingering sweet hops. Very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury Vermont. Golden like an IPA. Aroma is hops - smells like an IPA. Taste is the same (like an IPA). Mild hop bite on finish. Overall, just a solid, balanced India Pale.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear gold, with some lacing and fun carbonation. Tastes of hops, grapefruit, and just a little funk. Not really for me, but I get why others like it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this on tap and from many, many bottles. OK, I don’t know why they have this labeled as a strong ale, as it is a double IPA. Pours clear amber with a white head. Nose is of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is a delicious mix of grapefruit, tangerine and tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is creamy with a nice bitter hop bite. I love this brew so much and the fact that it is only about $10 per six-pack doesn’t hurt a bit. I kept searching and buying this while it was in stock. Drank cases of this stuff. Would love for this to be a regular in their lineup instead of just a seasonal.

Ironically better than what it was made to replace. LIght sweet, and pine taste in great balance with a great light lingering after taste.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I rate high, but this is a great beer. Lots of lacing on the glass. Thin head, crystal clear gold to orange color. Aroma of citrus fruits and slight dank malt. It has a smooth dry taste and a dry finish but lingering citrus and malt notes. I bought this because I enjoyed Brown Shugga, very very happy it is totally not even close to that beer...freakin’ awesome.
