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!

At first aroma is sweet but finishes with a hoppy note. Little to no head. Almost clear golden brown color. Has a hoppy taste with a strong lingering bitter finish.

Not much in the way of aroma. Color is standard golden with a thin head. Taste is great! Palate is great. Lots of malt and that balances out the hops. Great drinkable Beer!

Pours a clear medium amber with a slight dark ruby cast. An exceptional head that retains excellently with massive lacing. This is how a beer should look. The nose is a blend of sweet tropical hops over a slight grapefruit coupled with a sweet caramel background. Almost full bodied with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Slightly below normal carbonation with just a touch of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is quite nice, complex and fairly well balanced. It begins with the tropical and grapefruit hops of the nose which flows into a pleasant tasty bitterness. The bitterness fades into the background hop and caramel sweetness. The finish is smooth and a slight medicinal alcoholic bite lingers. The medicinal finish is the only flaw with this well crafted exceptional ale, but at 9.7% alcohol it is minimal. Excellent job Lagunitas!!

Dark amber colour with a large, creamy head. Aroma of hops with pine, citrus, caramell and grass. Also some floral notes and fruits and berries. A light smell of elder flower. Taste of caramel, toffee, syrup and hops togheter with light, sweet fruits and berries. A sweet and "sticky" mothfeel with a smooth background taste with a hoppy bitterness. A bitterness that makes a good balance to the sweet notes. Incredibly good.

Pours a deep amber with a small head. Very nice bitterness and a good intergration of roasted malts. Very well done.

Bottle. Smooth, a little sweet, buttery. Copper. This was the perfect beer for tonight.

This is the "SNEAK RELEASE" not the "12th Anniversary" edition. Wouldn’t put this in the IPA or IIPA genera; I’d like it in the Strong Ale category. Yes it is a hoppy beer, but the spice profile in the malts give this a big big boost. Not as good as Mendicino’s Eye of the Hawk, but better than Stone’s Arrogant Bastard. A bit chalky on the palate. Nice buzz though. Good, but I wouldn’t rave about it...

Wow, one of the best "nose’s" I’ve ever smelled out of a bottle! Great off-white creamy head that seems to last. Super sticky lace- all the way down. Man it just coats the glass. Dark amber color. Burst of wonderful hoppy flavor first sip. Man this is it! Even still a nice malty balance. We had it our vertical pale/IPA tasting, last weekend, and it was the winner! I sure hope this becomes a regular bottling!
