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!

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 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.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Poured a clear amber with a thick eggshell color head. Aroma is citrus, herbs, spruce, caramel, toast, and grass. Taste is grapefruit, pine, grass, caramel, floral with a very bitter and slightly sweet aftertaste. P.S. this will get you drunk quick.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Clear ruby amber colour, light frothy white head. Crazy hoppy aroma. All hops, all bitter, very palate-cleansing. Or stripping.

Lagunitas seems to be the king of making good but not quite exceptional beers, particularly those with a high dose of both hops and malt. Another solidly enjoyable ASA, a bit darker with more sweet malt than their Lucky 13 but still hopped up and full bodied. Considering its large ABV, solid flavor, and extremely reasonable price (4$ for a bomber), it’s well worth a purchase.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Caramel, followed by some nice malt and a bit of hoppyness (as an aside, Pursuit of Hoppiness sounds like a good name for a beer). Maybe a little too much caramel. But then again, maybe not, since i still like it.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2012 Pours a clear reddish color with minimal head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt and hops. Taste is a combination of sweetness and grapefruit. The finish is initially bitter and then there is some lingering sweetness. Alcohol is hidden well considering the close to 10% abv. I had to update my rating because after having several of these I would prefer if the beer was a little less sweet.
