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!

22oz bomber from Vadallia in Landsdale, Pa for $4.39!! Pours a nice fluffy head that hung around awhile + laced nicely. A crystal clear copper color (I was surprised this was not bottled conditioned, zero sediment). Nice nose of piney hops and some sweeetness telling me this would be hot. The abv was well hidden too my surprise and blended well with the high malt content.This is a good IPA with some kick. Some nice hop flavor with the "pineyness" and grapefruit bite but be careful, this is no session beer. The session would last for as long as it takes to drink 2 of these. For the price I paid, I would consider a session worth a try!!

12 oz bottle. I thought this one tasted pretty similar to the Brown Shugga and Censored Ale, but luckily it wasn’t as sweet as the former or as watery as the latter. Taste was very syrupy with hints of caramel and molasses, but fortunately there’s a nice subtle hoppiness to balance it out.

Guyute_Pig (100) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Reddish, cherry-cola appearance; off-white head with good retention. Generous aroma: maple syrup malt backdrop, piney and citrus hops; vanilla and brown sugar. Big, chewy mouthfeel: candy sugar, spice, maple syrup, and wet malts. Tasty, balanced American strong ale. Long sweet finish.

esoxangler (100) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2013
A good, sweet malty and slightly hoppy aroma to it. awesome dark copper color to it, my favorite thing to see when i pour a beer. Taste is pretty one dimensional, a well blended mix of normal, slightly bland hop presence and big, slightly sweet malt presence. pretty clean palate, but perhaps a little dry. good beer.

sharkweek (99) - Statesboro, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2013
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. The beer comes out a very dark amber with a finger or two of white head. It honestly didn’t look that appetizing. The aroma was very grapefruity. The taste on this one was strong bitterness with a sweet finish. This beer was not bad, but not something I am going to seek out again.

12oz Bottle. This is pretty tasty. I highly recommend you give it a shot if you see it in a build a six pack. Slightly sweet at the start with a nice, but not over powering, hoppy finish. I can’t wait to get some more. Cheers Lagunitas!

Strife21 (98) - 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.

BluePhish (93) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Pours a nice amber with ruby tinge and a bit of haze. Nice off-white head with a bit of retention and light lacing. Definite hops in the nose, grapefruit, a touch of kumquat. Also nice malty notes including a hint of nutty-caramel, and a bit of dark, shriveled fruit. Taste is very balanced, a touch of hops but melding well with the malt as well. Citrus, resin, fleshy fruit, a bitter finish but not overly so. A tap hoppy for the style overall i guess. Palate is medium with strong carbonation but alcohol is fairly well balanced. Overall tasty but a tad hoppy for my tastes within the style.

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - APR 16, 2013
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Top notch. Seek out if you like heavy red ales. Make sure you drink it cold as I had it the first time room temp and it had a smokey wierdness too it. Wonderful tropical hops, gauva and pinneapple plus usual grapefruit and pine. Alcohol is there but not too bad. This seems to be the kind of beer Lagunitas really knows how to make (brown shugga, lucky 13, maximus..) and I am glad someone does because it is awesome!
