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!

Bottle; Color: Dusty amber. Aroma: Sour fruit/ grapefruit. Flavor: Strong, sour fruit. Strong flavor definitely has a higher alcohol content, a bit boozy with a relatively mild finish.

hopmelt (196) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 Pours dark golden, slightly hazy, lots of bubbles, finger creamy white head, thick lacing. Aroma is bready malt, toffee, floral and earthy hops. Flavor is slightly bitter floral hops, bready malt, slight fruity esters. Mouthfeel is medium, good amount of carbonation, slight alcohol heat and a bit peppery. Overall well balanced and tasty, not great, but pretty good.

Damn nice beer. Straddles the line between IPA and Barleywine and does it well. I will definitely buy more of this

I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617. It was a medium amber brown color with a light tan head. It had a great aroma hoppy and fruity, citrus. Tasted quite good, I will have it again if I see it at the store.

yet another nice offering from Lagunitas who, in my opinion, brings us the best hoppy beer for the buck. Thanks to The Hopster for this one. Copper color with lively carbonation, tasty beer with citrus and piner hops, alcohol well hidden but kicks your ass later. Enjoyable.

WilleLW (193) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2014
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.

Tasting size portion at a local beer tasting event. 12 ounce bottle served in a plastic cup. Dark ruby brow with a thick creamy head. Lots of fruity and floral aromas. Sweet malt flavors with some brown sugar. Bit hoppy in the finish with some grapefruit flavors. Medium bodied, good carbonation levels. Nice, smooth and well balanced for a big beer. I was surprised to see its ABV is 9.7%, as this went down too easily. Definitely would look for it again.

This is awesome. Malt character is glory slightly outshining hops. There is a good bit of resin in the direction of juniper adding significant complexity.

Tortman18 (188) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
American Beer Classic. Pours a very clear copper/brown with half a finger of creamy white head that dissipates quick. Decent lacing. Aroma very hoppy and sweet. Citrus Roasted malts, spice and caramel. Mouth is very hoppy and citrusy with a hint of caramel. Perfect bitter taste. An interesting nutty undertone.
