Bottle, as pictured Pours a clear golden-orange with minimal white head. Smells surprisingly piney, though there’s not a ton of hops in the flavor. Lots of spice in it, very peppery. Pretty good, would definitely buy again.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 Golden with a very slight haze, small frothy white head, spotty lace. Deep aroma of caramel malts and resiny hops...a welcoming sweetness. Very refreshing yet big and balanced taste. Fruits and caramel throughout, some apple, orange, white grape peel, some spice yields to a lasting bittersweet finish. Boozy as it warms.

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.

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.

Half pint on-tap at Euston Tap, London:
Another excellent Lagunitas beer, not as hoppy as I’d expected with sweet malts taking the front seat but some did feature & the balance was a good one. The beer proved to be quite an easy one to drink as well, despite the strength. One well worth seeking out if you can find it.

Glass: Mason jar
From: Ciro’s Pizza
Misc.: As part of Lagunitas Tap Takeover Night at Ciro’s Pizza; Got to keep the Lagunitas mason jar
Poured a golden orange color with one finger of white head when I got it. Good circular lacing on the sides all the way down. Average-to-above average retention on the top.
Holy bitter hops on the nose! Got healthy doses of pine, citrus (grapefruit, lemon) and floral hops. Also some resin. Very flavorful, definitely the best part of the beer.
Tasted bitter grapefruit hops right from the beginning, but not too lingering. Sweet floral taste as well. Also orange pulp. Reminded me a lot of the Daytime IPA.
Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
I really, really liked this beer. Nice and smooth and would love to have it again. Well done Lagunitas.

clear golden with a big white head that is sustained for a while, excellent lacing and or glass drying... loads of tropical and stone fruits, light pale malts, tho the fruits dominate the aroma, not very piney... lively medium body loads of fruits, spicy, stonefruits, tropical fruits moreso than citrus... slick mildly creamy smooth mouthfeel for an IPAish beer... Medium to medium full bodied... AWESOME

Hazy orange color, white head that sinks but sticks. Great aroma of fuzzy peaches and peach jolly ranchers. Flavor doesn’t quite match up. It’s got some fruit and some bitterness but its just good, not great. Little bit of alcohol, eh. People hyped this up and while its a good beer it’s not all that. I regret buying a second six pack honestly.
