Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale
Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale and gave me a bottle to try. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head that recedes rather rapidly. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, orange, and spruce. The taste is rather hoppy and bitter with lots of tangerine, grapefruit, orange, and lemon. The finish brings out spruce and pepper. The alcohol content is 7.85% ABV. A turn from the typical holiday ales, this beer was really hoppy and rather delicious. I loved the amount of citrus flavors and a great bitterness to it.
