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!

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.

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.

Sweet and thick, fruit punch perhaps? A very strong beer, but not too syrupy considering what we are dealing with.

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance is a amber-copper color with about one finger of off-white head which leaves a bit of lacing as it dissipates. Aroma is very flowery with pine and a sweet citrus scent, like grapefruit juice. The taste follows the nose. For a strong ale, this is a pretty light taste and feel. There’s no discernible alcohol taste to it. One of the best beers I’ve tried.

12 oz. bottle. Pours lightly brown amber with a thin but lasting head that is considerably lacy. The aroma is fairly hoppy with resin and pine notes but also has a sweet fruity aspect that makes it quite different from the typical hoppy American strong ale. The taste is very sweet upfront like a big barley wine and traditions into a fairly bitter finish.

Why brew this only in the spring? This should be a year round brew! Gorgeous deep amber colour with a fading head and some lacing on the pint. Grassy pine dominates the aromas on the pour. Very citrus hop flavour with some burnt caramel to round out the flavour. Traces of dark fruits and a healthy alcohol warmth wash over the tongue. An intense beer that should be consumed with respect. Great job Lagunitas!

Great IPA. Simple, bitter and hoppy. All it should be: grapefruit, citrus, pine.

Appearance is deep amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is all hop... More earthy, herbal, and citrus. Taste is grassy, earthy, onion, with slight bit of pine. Mouthfeel is fairly high. Finish is a soft hop bitterness following by intense alcohol warmth. As the beer warms the alcohol finish becomes very noticeable and leaves a stinging sensation
