No, seriously, that’s what it’s called.  Lagunitas Sucks (Brown Sugga Substitute Ale), from Lagunitas Brewing Company, Petaluma, CA.  7.85% ABV, 63.21 IBUs.  Lagunitas Sucks is light amber with a slight haze, plentiful carbonation and a generous white head to be proud of.  The piney hops aromatics greet the nose with a touch of grapefruit zest.  Sucks has a smooth mouthfeel, sweet with a drying sensation at the end that is part hops, part alcohol, and there’s even a bit more pine in the exhale to bring your experience full-circle.  Not overly complex, which is nice, but interesting and tasty enough to warrant another visit!
