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!

Smells mostly of cherries with some malts and hints of caramel. Nice copper color. Taste of candy carries and dry fruit. Malty backbone with slight booze flavor. Nice sweet creamy finish. Med body with light carbonation. Quite a delightful strong fruit beer, nice work.

C. Pours a copper color with khaki head. Long lasting bitter after taste, okay

pours clear copper with small head that diminishes. aroma is very fruity with a good amount of grapefruit and a good amount of crystal malt sweetness. taste is very hoppy with some tropical fruit and grapefruit. this beer has a lot of crystal sweetness and pretty bitter finish.

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.

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.

I normally don't love super bitter beers, but this is an exception. Very smooth and velvety, with lots of malty sweetness for balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pour is crystal clear copper amber, with an off white head and lots of carbonation. Caramel and bread aroma with citrusy hops. Getting a sweet citrus quality, like mango or pineapple along with some bitter grapefruit. Taste is consistent with the aroma. Plenty of caramel, brown sugar malt with pineapple, banana along with a good citrusy hop bitterness. Alcohol doesn't taste big, but you can feel it a bit on the way down and a bit in the aftertaste. Overall this is quite good.

Kinda light fozzy brown head. Aroma is hops and light roasted Malta with a slight sweet smell in the end. Taste like arrogant bastard little brother with more alcohol. Not bad light hops full bodied. Bit of an alcohol bite.
