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 poured it from the bottle into a chalice. It pours a somewhat cloudy copper color with a nice head and lacing. The aroma is hops and spice. The taste is hops, bitterness, spice, and booze. The mouth feel is fairly carbonated. This had a lot of flavor. As it warmed, the alcohol became more pronounced.

caramel maple and slightly roasty maltinessand citrusy hops balanced along with a pear type aroma..nice clear dark red/bronze brown color pure white head dissipates to quarter inch ring..tastes bitter but with a strong maltiness much like an east coast ipa..strong citrus and piney hops along with the malty flavors mentioned in the aroma,more of a smoky roasty flavor than smell however..very easily drinkable and it was a pretty hot day so it warmed fast..maltiness more pronounced as it warms..overall excellent ipa for any season and as always extra points for costing under 10 bucks for a 6 pack

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2010
12-oz bottle. Ap - Pours with a frothy, three-finger thick, tan colored head and leaves a good bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear, concentrated amber color. Ar - The aroma is a heady mix of malt, but mostly hops that is noticeable as soon as I start to pour this brew. Notes of candied orange peel mix with citrus flavored caramel toffees, some notes of apricot and even some tangerine notes. There is a tiny bit of alcohol in the nose as well, and when mixed with the citrus. A touch of herbaceous pine rounds out the aroma. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. P - The beer is hefty enough, as it tends to linger on the palate and even has a bit of stickiness to it. T - The beer is sweet and malty up front, which really amplifies the fruity-citrusy hop notes. However the hops are the dominant note in this beer, with notes of red grapefruit, apricot and tangerine found up front. Towards the end an herbal, almost pine like, solid bitterness starts to take hold and lingers on in a long bitter finish. O - And the beer is not so thick and rich as to keep this from being pretty drinkable. It has a definite warming effect like a trippel but with more hops. A very nice brew.

tekstr1der (349) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Clear copper pour with nicely retained, clingy lacing of off-white top. Aroma is citrus-hoppy with some earthy tones and a bit of malt and booze coming through. Flavor is similar - a nice crisp bite of hop bitter up front, a malty mid-sip, followed by a bit of earthy hop lingering into the aftertaste. The latter being least enjoyable of the show. Not bad, but these guys do other, better brews.

10oz draft at brewery. Pours a deep reddish copper with an off white head. Floral, grapefruit and toffee aromas. Medium high hopped with a semi dry bitter finish.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2010
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!

six pack 10.99. Excellent Double IPA. Sweet, citrusy, and strong. One of my favorite styles, and this Lagunitas offering is solid.
