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!

Poured from 12oz bottle to tulip: Pours a clear copper with swelling off-white head. Retention is rather brief. Good lacing though. By the nose, I would assume this was an imperial red... rich caramel malts, earthy hops, pretty straightforward actually. The taste shows a bit more complexity - hops lean towards a dense ganja, a touch of citrus with that sweet malt presence. Really a nice combo I think. Nice, approachable big beer.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - MAY 10, 2010
A clear dark amber to red beer with a small offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is great juicy fruity hops. Citrus, strawberry, grape. A bit piney. Touch of alcohol heat. Flavor is quite hop bitter, but there’s some nice malt backbone to it - caramel and roasty notes, without any cloying sweetness. Finish is bitter. Chewy mouthfeel. I am a fan. Sort of a dark DIPA, or an extra hoppy BW.

ElCapitan22 (260) - 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!

22oz reddish beer. This offering from Lagunitas smelled like sugar and hops. This beer is extremely drinkable... even before I noticed the 9.9%, I knew that this was going down quickly. Most of the flavor is the sweet malt. It reminds me of a double bag from Long Trail, only this one has more hops and more complexity. The finish is nutty and there is no alcohol flavor even as it warms up a little. This was the best Lagunitas that I have had.

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.

pours a rich clear copper with a substantial tan head. Aroma is sweet floral and citrus. Taste is outstanding. Somewhat creamy mouth feel. bright citrus then good hop bitter. Just a faint malt sweetness for good balance. Pleasant nasal linger. Great beer!

It pours a nice amber/medium amber color to it. Oh!...My!!!...God! Hoppy as hell! I love it! Piny/Floral hoppy notes to it as well as grapefruity/fruity notes. This beer is hoppy, hoppy, hoppy and even more hoppy! Piny/floral hop taste. Thick/syrupy malty taste. Amazing! The after taste is a bit fruity. Which is great!
