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!

I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617. It was a medium amber brown color with a light tan head. It had a great aroma hoppy and fruity, citrus. Tasted quite good, I will have it again if I see it at the store.

yet another nice offering from Lagunitas who, in my opinion, brings us the best hoppy beer for the buck. Thanks to The Hopster for this one. Copper color with lively carbonation, tasty beer with citrus and piner hops, alcohol well hidden but kicks your ass later. Enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle. Great fruity aroma, full head that thins a bit too quickly but leaves nice lacing. Taste is bitter and sweet. Very nice and well balanced. A really good brew for hot weather.

beerbomb (191) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Pours dark brownish amber with a small creamy head. Aroma is thick, fruity, syrupy, and vineous with woody, piney hops-pretty much like a barley wine. Flavor is super thick and roasty like a barley wine as well and has a notable dark fruity presence combined with very flavorful hops.

Tasting size portion at a local beer tasting event. 12 ounce bottle served in a plastic cup. Dark ruby brow with a thick creamy head. Lots of fruity and floral aromas. Sweet malt flavors with some brown sugar. Bit hoppy in the finish with some grapefruit flavors. Medium bodied, good carbonation levels. Nice, smooth and well balanced for a big beer. I was surprised to see its ABV is 9.7%, as this went down too easily. Definitely would look for it again.

Dark amber with thin head. Strong hop smell with a malty sweetness. Sweet taste of grass. Bitterness and some alcohol in the enda.

This is awesome. Malt character is glory slightly outshining hops. There is a good bit of resin in the direction of juniper adding significant complexity.

pacond (187) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Sweet and thick, fruit punch perhaps? A very strong beer, but not too syrupy considering what we are dealing with.

12 oz. bottle. Pours lightly brown amber with a thin but lasting head that is considerably lacy. The aroma is fairly hoppy with resin and pine notes but also has a sweet fruity aspect that makes it quite different from the typical hoppy American strong ale. The taste is very sweet upfront like a big barley wine and traditions into a fairly bitter finish.
