Lagunitas Brewing Company Lagunitas Sucks Brown Shugga Substitute (No Longer Available)

A while back, Lagunitas Brewing Company had some trouble when different issues prevented them from brewing a crowd favorite brew,, the Brown Shugga. They were not happy with themselves and so they named the beer they created in its place, Sucks, as in Lagunitas sucks for not having their Brown Sugga. Um. Ok. Weird. So what is the deal with this beer and where can you get it in the area:

This beer is quite fruity for an imperial IPA which makes it not my cup of tea. However you can't argue with the ratings that this beer has gotten. I feel like if you like Mad Fox Brewing you will like this beer.
