Lagunitas Sucks

I loved the hoppy smell; there was a complex mix of sugars. Meanwhile, the taste was reasonably hoppy. Overall, it was a great beer and I would recommend it to IPA lovers.

I also enjoyed the balance of this beer.

At 12:59PM PT, I began feeling the effects of the alcohol.

The beer had a sugary aftertaste. I love beers with this sugary aftertaste.

Besides the beer being tasty and strong... er... I don't know where I was going with that. I think I should have some food.

As a side note, yesterday I waited in line near the craft beer stand for the ID checker guy to skip me a couple times in addition to being meticulous. It was fine when it seemed like he was checking girls before guys out of courtesy, but then when he started checking IDs of guys who had come after me, I got a little agitated. Anyhow, it was much nicer coming to the Lagunitas vendor near the Lagunitas Stage where there was no line and no wait for getting a wristband.

E. K. Ross would have enjoyed our suffering in 2010 when we saw we couldn't brew our Brown Shugga. But in that time of deepest despair, as is common to artists everywhere...broke, hungover, abandoned by the muse, and prepared to take a job at Arby's, we found in that darkness, the spark of inspiration that would yield up this nearly sanctified recipe!
