COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the worldís would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patrickís 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!

Amber pour. My first Lagunitas and didnít know what to expect. This was a way pleasant surprise. Sweet malts on the front end with a welcome hop punch in the finish. Awesome ale.

On tap at The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. Lagunitas is just incredible. Always knows how to take pine, citrus, and malts and make something awesome. A little too much alcohol bite, but still very enjoyable.

Pours a deep, rich amber color, with a thick, foamy, rocky head that clings to the lip of the glass. The aroma is a bright, semi-sweet combination of citrus and pine that is bold but not overly assertive. The flavor is much more aggressive, though, with a potent, resinous pine forest hop character that is only mildly countered by a bready malt sweetness. The sticky, resinous, full mouthfeel becomes weighty after a while. Overall, this is a bold, hop-dominant IIPA/Strong Ale that is quite nice in a single glass but might be too much for me to enjoy multiple servings at once.

Clean, dark copper color. Aromatic hops waft from the glass as soon as I start pouring - grapefruit, pine and herbs(not herb.) Strong alcohol and bitter flavors, with a little sweet caramel malt. A very slight higher alcohol off-flavor, paint thinner? Drink it fresh for a DIPA effect, but I bet it would age beautifully for years.

Aggiebob (280) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Draft: Pours amber with a white head. Aroma and flavor is pine with a hit of fruitiness. A little sweetness with a touch of bitterness at the finish.

When I hear strong ale I donít normally know what to expect. But when I hear lagunitas i usually expect greatness. This is a very good beer. Itís not just crazy hops like a lot of lagunitas beers, itís smooth and creamy and hoppy as hell. Itís a great beer, and probably my favorite strong ale to date.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a good finger thick head. Sweet tropical fruits and pine dominate the aroma. Taste is nicely balanced; sweet caramel malt and plenty of hops with just a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very well balnced at nearly 10%. Another knockout from Lagunitas. Canít wait to see everyone @ the Chicago laocation!!!

White head with hoppy aroma. smells like itís gonna be hoppy. yup. it is. oh. donít stop.yes. love it. Itís got some bitter-sour feel to it. Looks like ale. Tastes like white-ale. Tang and herbs. I know, i know, sounds contradictory but it screams cirtus with herby tint. Itís damn good. drink it.

Pretty good, sweet and hoppy aroma. Pours a dark reddish. Flavor was a little too sweet and syrupy, but still nice and enjoyable. Pretty thick.
