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!

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!

ninecats (233) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
Backlog, originally 2013. Clear copper, big compact white foam that dissipates slowly, leaving some lacings. Aroma is big malty, seeet, citrus, some alcohol. Taste is bitterly sweet, some sourness in between, lots of lingering hops, big malty flavours, alcohol. Medium to big body, medium carbo, sticky texture. Pretty straight up big on all accounts, almost barley wine-ish.

Melker (231) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2013
The first few sips were delicious. American barley wine-ish with lots of caramel and hoppy flavours like citrus fruits and pine. Way too sweet aftertaste and the bitterness felt kinda chemical but as the beer got warmer the chemical flavour dissapeared and the sweetness calmed down. At the right temperature it’s almost too easy to drink.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours deep orange with an ample off-white head. Citrusy floral hop aromas with notes of caramel. Excellent balance of hoppy brightness and malty goodness with a noticeable but not overwhelming alcohol finish. I really enjoy this one. I can’t fully define why, but I won’t overanalyze it.

leeburg (227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Slightly hazy reddish amber, diminishing off-white head leaves decent lacing. Potpourri of sweet hop aromas including citrus, pine, agave syrup, flowers, toasted malt. Like a hophead’s candy store, really. Flavors congruent to nose. Pungent bitter finish. Strong brew.

Copper color when poured. Has a malty caramel flavor. Nice hops flavor and isn’t very bitter Goes down smooth for the higher alcohol content.

Overml01 (225) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle Pour: A very nice brew as I recall from a tasting a few weeks back. Though the commercial description bills it as an especially bitter ale, my main comments I included in my notes were that it was "sweet and citrusy." ... and that’s all I put. Lol. *Note to self: Focus as much on the damned comments you leave for your future self as the beer in front of you!*

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Smells of rich coffe and caramel malts as well as floral hops. Taste is hoppier than smells but the coffee and caramel notes are there. The hops subside to give way to a coating palate aftertaste that becomes controlled by the matly notes once again. Nice beer.

Welley_Alves (223) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 30, 2014
Ótima American Strong ale da Lagunitas. Cor vermelho-cobre, media formação de espuma. Aroma com notas maltadas, cítrico. Na boca, bom corpo, pinho, cítrico, amargor com bom backbone maltado, equilibrado. Final seco, álcool bem inserido. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strife21 (223) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2014
Pours dark copper with nice white head. Smell is hops, citrus, sugar and malt. Taste is sweet and hoppy at first then backed my a solid malt finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.
