Sucks! Great beer. Hop Stoopid is good as well though.
I like Sucks almost as much as Heady.
Sucks is up there with anything, and yes... I mean Heady and ZD and Abrasive, etc...
Like everything if it was seaosanol and/or super limited it woul be treated as such
I believe I have them rated the exact same. Sucks is more sessionable than Stoopid in my opinion so it depends on how thirsty I am.
I mix them together and call it 'Suck It, Stoopid!'
Sucks. I see Sucks as an IPA myself and not a DIPA though
Sucks for the win! I have bought maybe 3 Hop Stoopid bombers in the last few years, and have not been impressed at all. I actually stayed away from Lagunita's for awhile due to Hop Stoopid. But recently tried Lil Sumpin, Cappuccino Stout, and was blown away by Sucks. Damn tastey.
Hop Stoopid. I'd take Brown Shuga over both though.
Sucks is one of those few beers that hits the edge of too much without going over. It has been amazing. I hope they can keep it up.
Wilco Tango Foxtrot.
Sucks all day. Hop Stoopid is alright, but Sucks is pry the best from Lagunitas in a bottle. Now if they just would bottle Waldo's Special...
Sucks. Not close.
I pass up 5 dollar Hopstoopid at my store everyday and trade for Sucks.
sucks tramples hopstoopid, and a lot of other beers honestly. it's not hard to come by, isn't expensive and taste great. and now it's gonna be available year round, yes and yes.
I would've said Sucks but last week had my first Undercover Shutdown, and now I think we need to make a new thread...
Sucks, for sure. Hop Stoopid is okay but it tends to sit around and is more often than not a mercaptan bomb.
Hop Stoopid is a very good IPA, but it doesn't hold a candle to Sucks!!
Hop Stoopid will never be better than Sucks. The only time Hop Stoopid was better than Sucks is when Sucks didn't exist.
Honestly, Sucks throws such a quandary into my IPA purchasing. Sucks, Columbus IPA, Head Hunter, White Rajah? Gah, decisions!
Price point is about the same for me. Sucks is clearly the better beer.
sucks by far.
Sucks when fresh... Hop Stoopid is still great, though... and maybe more consistent.
I figured this poll would be 85-90% Sucks. Looks like I am right.
Pretty sure its made with water too.
I like Hop Stoopid but I LOVE Sucks. Easy choice for me.
I Like HOP STOOPID..Over Sucks
but A little Sumpin Wild..is way better...
I have Hop Stoopid at 4.49, Sucks at 4.75 and the king of the three IMO, Maximus at 4.88.
So for this thread I guess Sucks, but when we got a new shipment of all three I bought all three.... Maximus does not turn around as fast so I buy sucks more right now as we are getting new batches every month so far and Maximus is every two months or so... But Maximus with its tropical and cirtusyness is great, plus throw in a malt backbone that can handle it and man that is a beer I just enjoy everytime I have it!
Long story short is Lagunitas can work the hops like no other IMO, 3 amazing DIPAs on the shelf at all times from the same brewery? Yes please!
when sucks came out, sucks. now, hop stoopid actually. lil sumpin extra probably my favorite IPA-ish beer by them. undercover shutdown easily my favorite lagunitas beer, and their RIS is the best value.
oral or intercourse? both are great. depends on the mood
My vote is for sucks, but for year round, Hop Stoopid is one of the best IPAs out there, and it should be put in 12oz bottles for sure. Drastically underrated beer by all means.
Assuming both beer are very fresh, I'll go against the grain and go with StOOpid only for the fact that it's much more sessionable than sucks. Sucks is packed full of more flavor, which I like more during the first one, but after 3-4, sucks becomes too lemony & Perfumey, whereas StOOpid just keeps it's drinkability, at a higher ABV mind you.
Now for the conclusion...Hop Stoopid is AWESOME within the first 2 weeks of bottling, but that off-putting, sweet typical house Lagunitas malt takes over very shortly, and after a month of bottling, I don't care at all for Hop Stoopid, or any other hoppy Lagunitas beer. Sucks stays nice and dry for at least 6 weeks before that same sweet malt profile shows up.
At the end of the day, Sucks is a better beer.
I like both and enjoy them differently. But if you had a gun to my head I would say sucks.
There are very few IPAs at my local store that I'll take over Hop Stoopid, but Sucks is one of them.
Sucks is their best offering I've had to date.
Sucks...I swear every time I go into the beer store and see it I grab it without even thinking. My gf actually said "don't you think you have enough?" Uhhhhh no...
