We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the world’s would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patrick’s Day Massacre on the Brewery Party Grounds and also in joyous celebration of our 20-day suspension that following January. Do the crime. Do the time. Get the bragging rights. Cheers!

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2010 3/17/2009: Crushed with CarytheDude and Jakebra.Kind of a reddish pour. Typical Lagunitas hops aroma. Flavor is kind of too sweet, with a rush of decent hops. Alcohol is a lot higher than i expected. Cool to try. Re-rate: 5/4/10 -- Aroma of brown sugar, hops, a pinch of dark malt. Flavor is bitter with some toffee. Lots of hops. Prickly mouthfeel. Better than I remembered.

12oz bottle. Pours a bright orangey-reddish brown with thick and decently lasting tan head that leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. Aroma is awesome with an amazing blend of spicy. piney hops with sticky, citrus, candy malts. The flavor starts off with a killer duo of candy malt and nice spicy evergreen characters. Almost to mid-palate, there’s a really bready malt character and a citrus rind bitterness enters. Just past mid-palate, there’s a firm but pleasant bitterness with more bready malts - but the sweetness is now subsiding. The finish is dry and spicy with a pine needle bitterness. The finish is very long and has a grapefruit aftertaste. The mouthfeel is lively and bubbly with a full and creamy body. Overall, a delicious imperial amber - perhaps a triple amber? Reminds me of their Imperial Red. Delicious but its strength catches up with you - it tastes drinkable at first, but before you finish your first one, you realize that its 9+%...

classic Lagunitas again, with the huge abv% and the malty sweet caramel finish. but this one has far more balance than the shugga and eyeball.

Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra. Another interesting Lagunitas strong ale. It’s like a hopped-up version of the Hairy Eyeball. Sweet with a good hop backbone. Alcohol isn’t too apparent. Pretty cool.

Pours out clear light red with creamy foam. Taste is sweet malts with bitter hops. Nice crisp hoppy finish. Very drinkable for high alcohol of 9% a good value for a sixpack. Another great beer from this brewery.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice orange color with a small creamy head. Leaves behind moderate lacing. Initial nose is big with hops. Floral, some sweetness, possibly caramel, some pine. Medium carbonation with a rich mouthfeel. Lots of malt here. A little tangerine, malt, honey, a little pine, and throw in some spice on the palate. The malt is big, but the hops still dominate this one. The alcohol is there, but there is so much going on, it blends in well. Definitely worth trying!

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 13, 2009
In the bomber bottle. Pours a chunky orange amber with a medium white head. I get the sense that this was a killer of a bitter beer that has now mellowed to something that is rather tame and mild and very drinkable. The finish is stil a long long hop whollop.

a- pours a clear, brown hue with a creamy white head that is mostly diminishing with fair lacing throughout s- aroma of sweet citrus hops and caramel malts t- fairly well-balanced ale that is slightly underwhelming for a DIPA, initial flavor is of citrus and pine hops, followed by caramel/toffee malts, subtle alcohol in the finish m- medium-bodied ale with adequate carbonation d- Balanced and warm DIPA that is smooth drinking, the abv is very well-masked, not the hoppiest DIPA, but a solid entrant in this category

22 ounce bottle shared by cdumler. Thanks! Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head and great lacing. Big strong fruits in the aroma with some toffee notes. Taste is very similar but with fairly assertive citrus hop notes throughout. Well balanced. Medium bodied.
