COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Amber body, off-white head with some lacing, mild hops and some sweet malt in the nose. This is 9.9%? Hides it well. Moderate bitterness on a semi-sweet base; does not blow me away.

Tastes like a less carbonated Arrogant Bastard. Aroma of hops and malt...sweet malt. Pour was a dark orange with no head. Taste was sweet malt in the beginning. Ginger and butter with sugar on the swallow, then piney hops in the aftertaste and on down the throat. This is like any other ASA.

22 oz. bottle - pours clear amber with 1/2 lingering light tan head; mild aromas are sweet and piney; drinks smooth and not as bitter as expected, though that comes out more after a few sips

22 oz bottle via Roth’s. Pours a clear dark copper with an average beige head. Not getting much from the nose here, just a moderate amount of nice floral hops. Taste starts a little sweet, there is a solid caramel malt backbone, but it quickly turns to the hops and is all about the hops. Grapefruit, pine, even some earthy hops carry through to the finish and the pine & grapefruit lingers in the aftertaste for quite some time. Medium body, moderate carbonation. 10% abv hidden quite well under all the hops.

Very beautiful cascading reddish amber. Lots of hops, like a Double IPA. Bitterness swells up and stays around. Very tasty brew, lots of flavors hard to pick out. Creamy palate, very full bodied. Real nice job, impressive considering how much hops and alcohol must be packed into this.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Pours reddish amber with a thin well-maintained light tan headiness. Aroma of caramel, sweet grapefruit, and hop-infused toffee. Taste is hoppy, resinous, with notes of caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is full bodied and slightly resinous but the beer is not cloying due to the good attenuation. Better attenuated than most Lagunitas offerings. After reading the story of this beer, I will be supporting Lagunitas even more!

650 mL bottle. Reddish copper color with a creamy white head. Big hoppy aroma of pine and spice. Thick sticky palate. Sweet caramel taste with a big bitter bite. Not bad.

I love lagunatis! What a crazy name for a beer. Tastes like a double ESB. Dark tan, almost caramel colored. Thick frothy head. Earthy, spicey aroma. Bitter and hoppy, but balanced with a heavy caramel body. Another winner at a great price!

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Bomber. Just bought this today and had not heard of it but admire some of Lagunitas offerings so I figured what the heck?! Pours well, nice 1 finger type head. Aroma seems earthy to me, not sure how to describe it. Flavor is resiny and bitter with a finish of hop and pine. In looking at the description of the beer, I wonder what is this 20 day suspension they mention?
