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!

Hazy, dark amber appearance with an average size, off white head and decent lacing. Resinous hop aroma, some citrus, slightly earthy. Sweet caramel malt taste balanced by spicy, piney hops. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel leading to a bitter, lasting finish.

radiomgb (2235) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2007
Rich copper in colour, thin dissipating light tan coloured head, some spotty lacing. The aroma is of pine, oranges and grapefruit, bready malts and light caramel. The flavour is initially piney, good caramel sweetness, woody, some noticable alcohol, thick and juicy. Chewy mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long with a moderate bitterness. Not bad but nothing out of the ordinary for Lagunitas.

650ml bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Beers Of The World in Rochester, New York.
Purchased on June 30, 2006 for $4.99

Pours a hazy reddish orange amber, with a somewhat thick fluffy white head. Kind of a mellow smell, light hops, with traces of cinnamon and other spices. Taste is somewhat sweeter than I thought, but the hops arestill present. Caramel and cinnamon kind of burst out at you up front, but dissipate towards the finish, as it turns into hops. Pretty good.

The pour reveals a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Good aroma of woody, resinous hops with something sweet. The flavor has an interesting combo of sweet and bitter with its woody, resinous hops and caramel sweetness. The body is light to medium with a chewy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I like that the alcohol is not present in the flavor.

22oz bottle. Caramel malts with nice hop finish. Alcohol pretty well hidden. Wish they brewed this more often.

Sweet hopy nose that has quickly diminishing head. alcohol well tempered and rarely noticed. Carmelly body with crisp hop presence troughout. Thanks to Bert for sending me this brew. It calmed me down on a stressful day. Well rounded. There should be more Valentines day masacrees if this quality beer is the end result. A mellow 9.9%

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Lagunitas event at the Brickskeller. Reddish, cherry-cola appearance; off-white head with good retention. Generous aroma: maple syrup malt backdrop, piney and citrus hops; vanilla and brown sugar. Big, chewy mouthfeel: candy sugar, spice, maple syrup, and wet malts. Tasty, balanced American strong ale. Long sweet finish.

My buddy Tyler and I threw down on a case of these bad boys. Very bitter and hoppy strong ale. Dark mahogany, medium body, instantly diminishing head. Piney and citrus notes are present, as well as alcohol. A realy good beer.

Bottle sampled after sitting in the fridge for 6 months: Pours a clear copper orange with a large, frothy, clumpy-lacing cream-colored head. Aroma boasts a good dose of grapefruity west-coast hops and some sweet caramel malt. Starts with a fairly full malty sweetness and good fresh piny resiny bittering hops for balance. Finishes clean and bittersweet.
