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!

Pours clear orange-tinged red, slight head, no lacing. Aroma is vinous, herbal, earthy, caramel. The sweetness is well balanced by the copious amount of hops. Very rich, complex flavor, nice finish. I would consider this to be an Imperial Red IPA. This beer has some balls!

Bottle. Pours dark amber with small head and some brussels lace. The aroma is hoppy, some malt, sugars and a touch of smoke? Flavor is bitter with a hint of sweetness in the background. This beer definitely grew in character and flavor as it warmed.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Pours a tan ruby color with cascading bubbles that leaves a thick tan head that is frothy, bubbly, and clingy. The aroma is spicy hops, dark fruit, plums, nectarines, cinnamon, with vanilla sweetness. The taste starts bitter with a strong malty caramel thickness that coats the palate with fruit sweetness balanced by a sharp bitterness that finishes syrupy thick and bitter but is refreshing and lively. Take that "po-po", this is a delicious brew aggresive and angry (in terms of the hop profile) great job Lagunitas!

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2007
2007 Bottle: Pours a beautiful crystal ruby red with a big 2-3 finger white fluffy head. Quite a pretty beer to look at in my goblet. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops with just a little malt underneath. Flavor is malty and moderately bitter but has a big hop flavor at the end and some lingering bitterness. Small amount of fruit esters come through. Slight alcohol warmth. This seems much more hoppy than last years and like a completely different beer than i remember. I think this is really an Imperial IPA.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Poured from a 22oz bottle a dark amber with a reddish tint and an off-white head. Aroma was caramel malt and floral/piney hops. Flavor was malty with a bitter hop and a bit of toffee in the finish.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2011
Poured from a bottle into a tiny plastic lager mug at Brew Fest in Athens, GA. The previous comments comparing this to a dipa are on track, although this proved less bitter and fuller in its malt profile than did other dipas at the Brew Fest. Amber-red in the ridiculously tiny mug from which I drank it, this went down smoothly despite the noticeable alcohol burn. A fine asa, and another worthy offering from Lagunitas.

Pours a copper color with nice big tight off white head. Aroma sweet hops slight orange sweet malt note.. Taste is sweet hops sweet malt character has a barley wine type character. Medium to heavy mouth feel. Wet finish flat mouth feel. Not bad but not spectacular either.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pineapple and burnt sugar for aroma. Deep amber in hue with an off white head. Very sweet with a decent amount of hops. I wouldn’t want more the one because of the sweetness. My least favorite Lagunitas Seasonal but still, not a bad Brew.
