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!

Turboninja (452) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle@home, from Heinenís, Cleveland, USA. Medium/light aroma with sweeter bit overaged berries, some pine and resin. Light amber/golden color with minimal white head and clear liquid. Strong, sweet and bit sour taste with averagely overaged fruits. Somewhat unbalanced with narrow taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with sweet malts. Medium body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, simple but sturdy product.

This was not an easy one to figure out. The aroma is massive sweet, caramel malt. Like nothing else....just malt. So much fucking malt. After a long time there was a bit of hops that started to come through. Itís actually pretty tasty if you enjoy a very very very malt forward beer. I kind of wish the hops were a little more present, but overall it tastes good. The abv though...be ready for a mean buzz.

swillguzzler99 (186) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2016
From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a nicely copper color with frothy head and decent carbonation. Sweet lemon biscuit nose. Grains, hint of citrus on taste. Too complex for my Neanderthal palate. Slight linger. Wonderful.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Six-pack from Big Red Liquor, Greenwood, IN. Pours a fingernail of beautiful tan head over a dark amber body. Nose of resinous hops, subtle citrus, and sultry caramel. The flavor is humongous and mouth-encompassing with notes of toffee, citrus, caramel, cedar, butter, raisins, and hops upfront and in the finish. Slight bitterness in the finish, too. Full body and medium carbonation. Very tasty and heady. A great offering by Lagunitas.

HighlanderOne (1174) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2016

sawbuck (601) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Mild aroma of hops, hint of pine. Nice deep orange color with a fine white head...nice lacing. Sweet caramel malt up front. Quickly followed by hoppy bitterness. Mostly pine but some citrus. Finish is unique,, Flip flops from bitter, to a reprise on sweet caramel, and then a blast of piney bitterness. Itís a bit unbalanced however. Some alcohol burn there also.

joejames (461) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear copper, two plus finger frothy tan head. Awesome lacing with retention like none other. Aroma is like walking though a pine forest. Taste is very sweet and exceptionally bitter creating a nice balance. Full bodied, lively carbonation, mouth feel is slightly syrupy but not in a bad sense. Finishes long and bitter. Tasting notes of caramel, toffee, pine, Belgian candy sugar, ripe stone fruits like plum, herbs and grass. Great beer with an interesting story. 420

malrubius (2486) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle from Meditrina. Clear copper with lasting head and lace. Toffee and citrus aroma with a little grass and pine. Sweet caramel toffee and some old school DIPA chewy fruity bitterness. Full body and appropriately low carb. Not the kind of DIPA I normally go for but delicious and ass-kicking nonetheless.

Andrew196 (1331) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Good looking beer, clear copper, off white head, fairly stable, coarse lace. Fresh aroma, very strong in plum, lavender, hops. A bit syrupy in the taste, a very lingery boozy finish. Had some qualities of a decent barleywine with a deep, sweet maltiness.

migwell (274) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle into a Lagunitas jar. Aroma of hops and pine. Taste is pretty smooth, not especially sweet or bitter. Body is medium and Iím aware of the alcohol (presumably a late 2015 or early 2016 bottle at 9.5%) but it doesnít hit you over the head until youíve had a couple. Nice orange/amber color with little foam that vanishes rapidly. Citrus, malt, hops, booze and a grapefruity finish rather than bitter hops. Very nice offering, but halfway through the first glass Iím thinking íMassive Hangoverí! It is way too easy drinking for the punch it packs, but Iíll certainly buy another sixer of this fine brew as long as it is available.
