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 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.

Aroma of citrusy hops and caramel. The taste is very balanced between hops and malt. Not bitter or sweet but balanced.

jrmac (333) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2009
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.

ElCapitan22 (332) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Pours a very nice clear, copper color. It has very nice lacing, but minimal head retention. Smells hoppy, and a bit of caramel malt. Tastes very bitter and hoppy. My only criticism is that it finishes a bit too sweet. That being said, an excellent drink!

Pours perfectly with a layer of white head. Fragrant aroma of hops, citrus, brown sugar. Flavor is hops, a mix of grapefruit and pine, brown sugar. Smooth with a big finish. Delicious. Reminds me of the Brown Sugga.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 27, 2010
pours a really nice reddish copper with just a little biddy white head. flavor has tons of piney hops all the way through, almost seems more than the IBU rating says it has. warming alcohol in the finish, but the flavor isn’t overbearing. the malts are subdued, sort of bready. there’s a sort of light spiciness going on, almost minty in the finish. the beer is kind of delicate if you look past the big hop flavors. sort of seems like it’s missing something, but the way it comes together was unique and enjoyable to me, so 3.5 it is.

I love lagunatis! What a crazy name for a beer. Tastes like a double ESB. Dark tan, almost caramel colored. Thick frothy head. Earthy, spicey aroma. Bitter and hoppy, but balanced with a heavy caramel body. Another winner at a great price!

Thanks to rustychiles for grabbing me one of these. Pours a dark chestnut brown with next to no carbonation. A straight pour down the center results in no greater than 1/4 finger of head. Pretty dismal for a beer that I know is damn hoppy. Aroma is of dank citrusy/piney American hops and a teeny bit of crystal malt. Taste is pure dank heavy high alpha acid American hops backed by the residual sweetness of a solid amber ale with plenty of crystal malt thrown in. Quite quite tasty, and I’m no hop head. This was pretty reminiscent of Oskar Blues Gordon for me.
