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!

Crystal clear light amber pour. Thick white head and lots of lacing. Heavy hop aroma. Citrus and pine comes through the most. Alcohol comes through as well. Don't pick up much malt in aroma. Pretty thick mouthfeel. Flavor is very balanced. Still very bitter but not very dry. Caramel sweetness shines a little bit more than in aroma. Still some alcohol, but not bad for 9+%. Very good beer. ---Rated via iPhone

Growler from the Costco independent liquor store. Deep copper color with a decent head with very good lacing. Aroma and taste are bitter hops, rich malt, and a complex vegetal note. You can definitively tell this is high gravity but it's not hot. The aftertaste and warming are the bigger indicators. Very good beer. Don't suggest drinking multiples. Either start the night or end the night with this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stantheman (652) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A darkish brownish amber beer with a bit of pale head. Fruity on the nose. Big citrus hop, big fruit and big malt all up front. Sweet and fruity with a bit of malt on the lingering finish. Body seems a bit thin, but all goodness, all the way down. 4.

Excellent beer, balanced to perfection, tasty and drinkable. It deserves a quiet tasting, little sipd to appreciate the many nuances it has. Very great.

05-SEP-2014, bottle @home, from Barleywine. Almost clear amber with a huge, creamy, lasting, lacing, tan head. Aroma is flowery hops. Taste the same with caramel. Bitter, sweet, full body. Typical Lagunitas taste:-)

Cunningham (4490) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Looks really nice. Clear caramel color with a fine off white head. Solid lacing. Damned fine hoppy aroma with a solid caramel malty back. Solid body on this one. Fine balance between bitterness and sweetness, and a fine carbonation. Fruity, hoppy and deep malty flavor. A really lovely and tasty ale.

Zekada (135) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Tap from Bishop Arms in Helsingborg. Smells is complex of wheat, bread, malts and caramel. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Taste is strong and equally complex and has tones of hazelnuts and some dried fruits. The palate is full and rich, a nice feeling. Overall another nice beer from Lagunitas.
