Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale

So this beer came with a story, and it’s actually pretty funny. Apparently Lagunitas didn’t have the space to brew their usual holiday beer, Brown Shugga so they had to scramble to pull something together. That’s where this beer comes in. It is an American Strong Ale (which isn’t an officially recognized style based on BJCP standards) and has 7.85% alcohol. It’s pretty funny cause they are basically bashing on themselves here.

This beer pours a clear light orange color with a fizzy white head. Small bubbles on this.

The aroma is super hoppy, sappy and resin. Almost dank if you get my drift… Very intense aroma.

The flavor is just like the smell. Very hoppy with I LOVE! Lots of sap and pine tree flavors. Finishes hoppy, bitter with a feeling of alcohol. Very good!
