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!

Pours clear medium golden color in the glass. Head is medium sized and builds from the bottom. Starts out with small bubbles but over time larger bubbles develop. Bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass quickly and consistently. From of roasty malts, honey and caramel. I can’t tell if I smell some hints of smoke or not. Flavor is medium sweet on the front of the tongue followed by a bit of bitterness on the back sides the mouth. Smooth consistent flavor that is not overpowering. Maybe slightly sower, but not a major part of the flavor. Reminds me of a strong ale. Given the 9.3% ABV this beer is relatively smooth and light in the mouth and doesn’t really have an alcohol flavor to speak of. Overall this is a pretty tasty beer, but don’t drink too many at once.

Aroma: caramel malts, toffee, alcohol, spices. Appearance: clear, dark gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: caramel malts again, sugar, some grapefruit, overripe fruits, some pine. Overall: very nice American Strong Ale, light in aroma, but a sledge hammer in palate. Pint at Hangar on the Wharf, Juneau, AK.

Good. I had a very small tasting from a friend. It was the last bottle so I couldn't get a good eval. It's definitely worth trying again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Antenna America. Great stuff, dark fruits and toffee dominate the complex flavors, rich and smooth, syrupy body with some barley wine qualities.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 Really like this beer. Great taste. Identified it for entry in a beer competition and was not disappointed. Highly recommend for a good evening of beer tasting. String enough to make you respect it but the product delivers a nice zing. Definitely making me a Lagunitas fan.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Wonderful hops and some citrus in the nose. Super rich malt in the initial sip then a slight bit of alcohol burn as it slides down your gullet. The taste warms on your tongue like a hearth fire on a cool early autumn night

Bottle. Ruby brown hues with a tight tan head. Pine and caramel aroma. Bitter hoppy taste with some dark fruit and caramelized sugar and spice. Very good. Rich and resinous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
