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!

Bottle. Aroma of caramel malt, metallic hops, fruit and heinz ketchup. Flavor was good, and got better with time. Good palate and mouthfeel. Nice caramel mlat flavor, which started to dominate the hop presence. I liked that. Hops were ok for me. Pretty good overall.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt and some citrus hops. The body is good with significant malt, however, it kind of tastes like a dry-hopped american strong ale. I don’t appreciate the dry-hopped flavor.

guzzler67 (1527) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2007

radiomgb (2388) - 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

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2007
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.
