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!

22oz reddish beer. This offering from Lagunitas smelled like sugar and hops. This beer is extremely drinkable... even before I noticed the 9.9%, I knew that this was going down quickly. Most of the flavor is the sweet malt. It reminds me of a double bag from Long Trail, only this one has more hops and more complexity. The finish is nutty and there is no alcohol flavor even as it warms up a little. This was the best Lagunitas that I have had.

Pours a clear dark amber. No head retention. Slight malt aroma. Sweet malt taste in the beginning, nice bitterness in the middle and finishes dry.

Single bottle, Total Wine. Clear amber pour with a fairly thick, creamy head. A lot of pine and caramel in the aroma along with some citrus fruit. Taste is Lagunitas all the way - great balance of hoppy bitterness and malt sweetness, with a slightly boozy finish.

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

It pours a nice amber/medium amber color to it. Oh!...My!!!...God! Hoppy as hell! I love it! Piny/Floral hoppy notes to it as well as grapefruity/fruity notes. This beer is hoppy, hoppy, hoppy and even more hoppy! Piny/floral hop taste. Thick/syrupy malty taste. Amazing! The after taste is a bit fruity. Which is great!

Pretty good beer; the second I've had from this brewery. Loved the IPA(more than this). The malt profile was a little much; to the point where this seemed like a light barley-wine(but not light in ABV). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ljstephenson (249) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A deep red cloudy pour with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet with strong notes of malt, caramel and alcohol, slight notes of grapefruit and brown sugar. The flavor is also sweet with notes of caramel and grapefruit, leading to a very bitter grapefruity finish with a strong hop finish.

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. .

2007, Nice ruby color, aroma is sweet and hoppy, caramel, very nice. The hops are noticeable first, alcohol is very well hidden. Reminds me of barley wine, overall very good.
