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!

Slight hop aroma with a clean olfactory. Light brown orange in color, filtered. Strong alky initial taste bud impact. Bitter pine sap and turpentine. Finish is certainly a shut down, bitter oily medicine. Too much for this lager lover. WEW! Typical Lag personality, over the top.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Six pack from Market of Choice. Pours out a nice reddish brown with a small off white head and light lacing. Aroma is bready with sweet caramel and some earth and citric hop action. Flavor is a lot of the same, very good melding of those hop flavors with the sweeter malts. Just a tad too boozy, but it mellows as the beer warms. Another solid offering from Lagunitas.

dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2009
bottled, clear ruby pour with small/thin white head, very mild sweet malt aroma with large floral hops on nose, tastes hop bitters upfront with grapefruit like sour in mid and lasting floral hops on palate, BIG ale with complex flavors

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - MAY 18, 2009
Another nice beer from Lagunitas, poured a deep red, great hoppy aroma, very bitter taste, just a little too sweet of a finish for me, but still great. goes really well with chocolate for whoever cares!

Hank1980 (963) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. Poured a redish amber, clear, with a white head, tons of lace. Aroma of big earthy, citrus hopping. Taste is very bitter, with lots of grapefruit and plenty of malty caramel. Finish is really nice bitter. Mouth is kind of sticky and sweet. Overall, a good sipping beer, with a good amout of malt to balance the brew.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2009
reddish brown with large white head. moderate to low carbonation. hoppy nose. bitterness immediately, very distinct flavor that is quite possibly from chinook. flavor hops come in and have the classic Columbus style. a very prominent malty sweetness, likely from low crystal malt. a little alcoholic warmth, but very well hidden for the abv. love the american amber style and this is a great version

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2009
dark red beer with medium head..sweet aroma with hints of caramel, fruit, and piney/floral hops...chewy malts are detected first, followed by harsh piney, bitter hops..oddly refreshing, and quite tasty..not to be followed by another shut-down

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is nice citrusy-soapy indicative of generous dry hopping. Flavor is pleasant red fruity and caramel, with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Discernable alcohol heat in the aftertaste, a bit too sharp for my taste. All in all a well made brew, but little more. Sort of like if Rogue’s American Amber married Lagunitas’ strong ales.

highibus (755) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Pours a nice ruby red with white head good lacing. Only a light aroma. Hides the alcohol well nice and hoppy nicely balanced with malt. Medium body with a bit of a spicy hop finish.

leeburg (227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Slightly hazy reddish amber, diminishing off-white head leaves decent lacing. Potpourri of sweet hop aromas including citrus, pine, agave syrup, flowers, toasted malt. Like a hophead’s candy store, really. Flavors congruent to nose. Pungent bitter finish. Strong brew.
