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 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

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.

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.

Good. I had a very small tasting from a friend. It was the last bottle so I couldn't get a good eval. It's definitely worth trying again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a copper brown gold color. Smooth and very sweet. Whatever type of hops they use the bitterness is masked very well by the sweetness. I can taste the malts as well. Very nice. Awesome head retention and lacing on the glass. Medium bodied beer. I can smell sweet hops along with slight malt in there too. Try this one.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with small head and some brussels lace. The aroma is hoppy, some malt, sugars and a touch of smoke? Flavor is bitter with a hint of sweetness in the background. This beer definitely grew in character and flavor as it warmed.

4/9/15. Bottle purchased July, 2013. Same rating I originally gave it but definitely a different beer. Still had a big sticky head and cooper color. Nose a bit of a funky edge. Mouth has got big and round. A little less boozy with less of a bite. However still real big with lots of dark smoky notes coming through. Lots of fun ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a tan ruby color with cascading bubbles that leaves a thick tan head that is frothy, bubbly, and clingy. The aroma is spicy hops, dark fruit, plums, nectarines, cinnamon, with vanilla sweetness. The taste starts bitter with a strong malty caramel thickness that coats the palate with fruit sweetness balanced by a sharp bitterness that finishes syrupy thick and bitter but is refreshing and lively. Take that "po-po", this is a delicious brew aggresive and angry (in terms of the hop profile) great job Lagunitas!

Amber pour. My first Lagunitas and didn’t know what to expect. This was a way pleasant surprise. Sweet malts on the front end with a welcome hop punch in the finish. Awesome ale.

2007 Bottle: Pours a beautiful crystal ruby red with a big 2-3 finger white fluffy head. Quite a pretty beer to look at in my goblet. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops with just a little malt underneath. Flavor is malty and moderately bitter but has a big hop flavor at the end and some lingering bitterness. Small amount of fruit esters come through. Slight alcohol warmth. This seems much more hoppy than last years and like a completely different beer than i remember. I think this is really an Imperial IPA.
