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!

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

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.

Nice sweetness that hides the high abv. Caramel and malts with a slight hop presence.

Appearance is deep amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is all hop... More earthy, herbal, and citrus. Taste is grassy, earthy, onion, with slight bit of pine. Mouthfeel is fairly high. Finish is a soft hop bitterness following by intense alcohol warmth. As the beer warms the alcohol finish becomes very noticeable and leaves a stinging sensation

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.

Smells of caramel and toffee with a noticeable hop. Taste is the same. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2006
22oz bottle. Pours deep copper color. Fast dissipating, white bubbly head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and pine. Flavor quite bitter, with a nice hop kick. Hints of spice, orange, caramel, and malt. As it warmed the hops and caramel was more evident. Full bodied, sticky texture. Medium to full bodied.

Clear amber with thin minimal head. Aroma is intoxicating mix of fruity hop and maple/brown sugar. Body is lighter than one might expect. Not overly sugary or alcoholic. Like a mellow light barley wine melded with an IPA. I am enjoying it.

Citrus flavor with herbal aroma. Also somewhat of a BBQ sauce-type aroma. Perhaps it is the sugar. More sweet than anything. Bready and yeasty. A true full-bodied ale.

Outstanding, Tastes more like an Imperial IPA rather then a strong ale to me. Great copper color, bitter hop aroma and flavor, a little citrus, and even a little malt hiding inside.
