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!

Bottle. Pours a brownish copper color with a medium sized head. Aromas are of pine and grapefruit hops presence with a bit of a malty sweetness. Like many Lagunitas offerings, the hops presence dominates the beer, and it seems to be the same mix of California hops with their pine/resin/grapefruit that is common to their products. The malt presence in this one is a little fuller and counterbalances the hops well. It offers a nice caramel backbone that supports the bitter hops bite.

Well, if the length of the name has anything to do with the beer, it should be great? lol The beer makes good its escape from the 22 ounce bottle a cloudless burnished copper, the head perfection, the color light tan and the texture creamy, upon its evitable demise, the lace forms a thick glutinous sheet to obfuscate the glass. Nose is chockablock with the hop flowery aroma, sweet malt supports the hops, hints of caramel, appetizing, nay mouth watering I say. Start has a pleasant malt profile, sweet with a definite hop spicy bitterness at the back, top is middling to full in its feel to the palate. Finish continues the big hop spicy bite, the acidity customary, the aftertaste dry as a bleached desert bone, my oh my if this ain’t a great beer, then I’m a teetotaler, and we know that ain’t so. lol

MadIndian (2663) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest 07 with Stegosaurus. I asked the guy to pur just a spasl to sample this one and he said when you come to my tent I fill it up all the way or I don’t fill it at all. I am glad he did because this kicked ass. Bronze pour with billowy head Wood, hop and sweet caramel aroma. Roasty / hoppy mouthul with a real good claen finish. REAL GOOD.

b33r (772) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Amber color with small off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Hops dominate the flavor with light malts and fruits. Average, typical american strong ale all around- nothing spectacular but still good to drink

21 sept 07. 22oz bottle, 9.28% ABV. Deep copper color. Almond colored, huge, foamy head. Big citrusy hop florals. Flavor is more earthy than expected, like a hemp rope. Very high IBUs! The bitterness lingers long after the first sip. A very American Strong Ale.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Fairly clear, dark brownish-amber body. A large, foamy, off-white head leaves behind thick, sticky ribbons of lacing. The aroma shows sweet brown sugar malts, hints of molasses, cream, and moderate piney hops. Caramel and molasses flavors are balanced out by floral and piney hops. Cream adds a smoothness to the flavor and the consistency, making for a milkshake-like, satisfying beverage. The body lies on the heavy side of medium. Clean finish. Alcohol is undetectable. Lagunitas continues to pump out really solid, strong American brews. This one is no exception.
