COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the worldís would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patrickís 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!

Pours a clear copper with a thin white head and a lot of lace. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit, floral, and sweet caramel malts. Flavour is tropical fruits, mild alcohol, high bitterness, pine, caramel and a moderately dry finish. Pretty balanced and enjoyable though I almost get a slight bit of a medicinal touch mixed in the complexity, I think thatís likely just from the tons of hops here.

Very interesting beer. The shut down is a great way to start the night, Smelled malty and has a large malty taste.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy hops, caramel malt, brown sugar, ripe fruit, some vegetables and alcohol fill the mouth. Finish is long, semi-dry. This brew has some unusual taste, I donít think I will drink it often.

Pours clear red-tinged pale amber with a fat finger of rocky white head, great retention and heavy lacing. (5/5) Nose is brown sugar, raisins, dank piney resin, citrus, mild boozy fruit. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Medium body, lively to moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Wow - thatís a whole lotta hops for a non-IPA. But, itís almost all on the nose and relatively little on the tongue (which is why Iím thinking itís a lot of dry hopping, as opposed to in the boil). Interesting. (And the name is pretty much what you think. Letís just say, the residents of Sonoma County are/were somewhat more accepting of certain other intoxicants than the state Alcohol Beverage Control, and that Lagunitasí tastings reflected that sense of accommodation.) Aesthetically, youíd be hard-pressed to find a prettier beer - seriously, I canít think of one. (17/20)

Deep clear copper color with white head. Minor lacing. Aroma is hoppy with some malt. Flavor is balanced and very enjoyable. The hops really bring this beer to life. I would drink this again.

Weezel (228) - Florida, USA - APR 18, 2015
Faint aromas of grassy hops and some baking spice. Beautiful copper color with good clarity. Taste is malt forward with brown sugar, sweet gingerbread and some buttering hops on the finish. Good stuff.

BeerInHeaven (229) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2015
pours a rich clear copper with a substantial tan head. Aroma is sweet floral and citrus. Taste is outstanding. Somewhat creamy mouth feel. bright citrus then good hop bitter. Just a faint malt sweetness for good balance. Pleasant nasal linger. Great beer!

Chappy's, Dayton, draft. Creamy off-white head, but it fades fast. Looks like a broke ale. No aroma I can discern. Light mouthfeel, big post-swallow hut of bitter, hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep mohogany pour with a white head. Aroma is big caramel malts, mild hop bight. Taste follows. Honestly somewhat unimpressed.
