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!

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!

Great looking orange pour with a lacey head. Big aroma of resiny hops and a bit of citrus. The finish is pretty hot and alcoholic, but a nice pretty dry finish

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Blood-red pour with a thick one-finger head. Huge malty aroma. Very sweet smelling, with notes of brown sugar, plums, raisins, and hearty breads, along with bountiful citrus and resiny hops. Taste is also sweet up front. Dark fruits, caramel, and toffee start the sensation, but there’s a wicked hop bite at the finish. Citrusy with a little touch of pine. Mouthfeel is full and robust. Another home run from Lagunitas.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Poured a warm honey color with about a half inch off-white head that quickly disappeared leaving no lace. Great aroma - this is what really sold me on this beer, biggest note in the scent is straight sour cherries - a great sweet subtle bitterness to play off the hops and the bite in the taste. Great crisp mouthfeel and enjoyable from start to finish. Very refreshing, a lot going on in the appeal of this beer.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown Pours dark copper with a medium white head. Somewhat sweet resiny hop aroma is the overwhelming characteristic with some citrus as well. Flavor is bittersweet caramel and resin hops. Yummy as hell with a nice bite. Will drink more. Smells good. Big.

joshpiledean (316) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Pours amber with active carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with a strong piney hop aroma. There is a good balance between the malt and hops, although both are very strong. Taste is mostly a blast of hops with some candy and caramel flavors. Mouthfeel is light, ends sticky. Alcohol is very present but not overpowering, just enough to let you know you’re drinking a serious beer. Serious business. LIke totally srsly. Undercover srs.

jumpjet2k (314) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2009
Bottle, "12 fluid oz’s ...of hops, malt, hops, hops, yeast, hops, water, and hops." Pours an orangey-copper with a very small head. Aroma of malty sweetness with some leafy hops. Flavor is rich and sweet on the tip of the tongue with citrusy/floral hops on the back. Finishes medium-dry with a defined but comfortable bitterness. Body’s pretty normal. Good stuff.
