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!

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

Pours out clear light red with creamy foam. Taste is sweet malts with bitter hops. Nice crisp hoppy finish. Very drinkable for high alcohol of 9% a good value for a sixpack. Another great beer from this brewery.

Yummy. Very deep brown amber with a thin foamy ring. Nice deep pineapple hop aroma and a nice balance of malt sweetness. Taste still manages to finish crisp and with a good bitterness despite a somewhat heavy malty sweet flavor. This is a really nice beer. It’s got a little something for everyone and still comes across as balanced, smooth and flavorful. Also noticed no trace of the big abv. Very nice work!

I love this beer! Sweet syrupy caramel aroma, beautiful orange/red color. Sweet, hoppy, floral. Smooth, hides the alcohol content well, I can drink so many, is dangerous :)

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.

On tap, came a red to balck color with very high carbonation levels. Very interesting and enjoyable beer. First impression is that of hop bitterness, then it glides into a mixture of flavors with some light caramel, cherries, and a noticable but light roasted character. On the drier side, and the alcohol was not that noticable.

Had this beer at mellow mushroom with rowen. Really good nice hop aroma and great taste. Well balanced for such a strong beer. Would definitely have again.

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.

Nice amber pour with a good sized off-white head that laces well. Slightly acidic aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Very hoppy, bitter flavor with a good balance of some sweet caramel malts.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2013 Looks very nice. Deep red-brown, fluffy off-white head that leaves residue all over the place. Aroma is nice, but not particularly interesting: citrus, resin, toffee. Taste is heavily citrus, caramel, resin, and mild alcohol. Balances out very nicely as it warms. Fairly full bodied, dry finish. Good sipping beer, good balance.
