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!

Very Complex. Rich, full bodied flavor - lots of hops but not bitter - an earlier comment said that this had an aroma of BBQ sauce - I would go a step further and say it actually has a slight TASTE of BBQ sauce. In a good way. I think. Definitely an earthy caramel flavor to balanced the hops. My original reaction was that I would not want more than one of these at once, but this beer has so much going on that a second bottle may be required. .

Aroma: This beer smells amazing. Pine and caramel with floral undertones in the nose. Appearance: Reddish with a beautiful head and long lasting lacing. Taste. Up front caramel with a touch of bread backed by resin, pine and flowers. Aftertaste is really long and the alcohol is not well hidden at all. In fact it’s kind of a put off. Palate: sticks around too ling with too much burn. Heavy alcohols Overall: Definitely not my favorite lagunitas beer.

circinus (241) - SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle 355ml, from Systembolaget. Clear copper with a white head. Grassy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, some raisin, caramel. More general fruit characteristics and maltiness when it warms up. Medium body, round, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Some warmness, a bit of alcohol in the nose, but not in the mouth. Nice, would buy again.

bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Aroma is very light citrus, resin, and caramelly toffee notes. The flavor is citrus up front, then the toffee malt kicks in followed by a slight caramel note. The abv is hidden very well. Be careful with this beer!! It’s very tasty and very potent.

dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Pours a medium brown, with a beige head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, and some grapefruit. Flavor is fruity, malty, and mildly sweet. Finishes a little astringent, and hoppy, but not bad. Overall very smooth and drinkable.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Deep mahogany brown. Nose is hot booze, toffee, and tobacco. Flavor follows, nice round palate, and bitter hop finish. A bit on the sweet side to be a real but still a great affordable brew. -Fish!
