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!

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.

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?

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Bomber. Beautiful copper with a huge off white head. Caramel, orange and overripe tropical fruit, particularly papaya. Sweet tropical fruit and brown sugar flavors, a bit hot overall. Nice!

Beaver (1413) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a small off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel, melon, and some metallic, slightly piney, hops.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts, some tangy fruits and then a big piney hop finish that lingers in the aftertaste. It’s nicely balanced and blends well together. The alcohol is noticeable and warming, but not over the top. The mouthfeel is medium to full with soft (yet bitter) carbonation.

Overall, a tasty beer. It seems pretty similar to the Lucky #13 from what I remember, but not as good.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle: not a great aroma. But, you can really smell the grain if you are in to it. Crushed crystal malt scent. Great malty taste. A solid brew.

Metalhead (633) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 deep amber pour with a 2 finger tannish head. medium hop,pine and hints of citrus in the nose. Decent amount of lacing. Taste starts out almost creamy,for the first few seconds then turns hoppy pine bitter with some caramel. Oddly enough at 10% ABV this is very drinkable. This review took me 5 mins and my pint glass is over half gone. DEE-Lish!
