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!

Copper color when poured. Has a malty caramel flavor. Nice hops flavor and isn’t very bitter Goes down smooth for the higher alcohol content.

Lawger (232) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Dark amber colour. Fresh aroma with hints of a modern IPA with flowers and citrus which leaps from the glass. The flavour has a nice caramel element to it which leads on to a balanced and soft but still powerful bitterness kicks in. The finish has good kick to it. A slightly medicinal feel, but still pleasant. Very nice.

Tastes very warm, more spicy than bitter. Malty caramel sweetness. Worth trying, I suppose.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours deep orange with an ample off-white head. Citrusy floral hop aromas with notes of caramel. Excellent balance of hoppy brightness and malty goodness with a noticeable but not overwhelming alcohol finish. I really enjoy this one. I can’t fully define why, but I won’t overanalyze it.

leeburg (227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Slightly hazy reddish amber, diminishing off-white head leaves decent lacing. Potpourri of sweet hop aromas including citrus, pine, agave syrup, flowers, toasted malt. Like a hophead’s candy store, really. Flavors congruent to nose. Pungent bitter finish. Strong brew.

GSH1976 (227) - Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2012
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.

Bottle Pour: A very nice brew as I recall from a tasting a few weeks back. Though the commercial description bills it as an especially bitter ale, my main comments I included in my notes were that it was "sweet and citrusy." ... and that’s all I put. Lol. *Note to self: Focus as much on the damned comments you leave for your future self as the beer in front of you!*

Hop bomb explosion- old ale or not! Caramel malt backed up by hops approaching a barley wine. Very good.

Welley_Alves (225) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 30, 2014
Ótima American Strong ale da Lagunitas. Cor vermelho-cobre, media formação de espuma. Aroma com notas maltadas, cítrico. Na boca, bom corpo, pinho, cítrico, amargor com bom backbone maltado, equilibrado. Final seco, álcool bem inserido. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Smells of rich coffe and caramel malts as well as floral hops. Taste is hoppier than smells but the coffee and caramel notes are there. The hops subside to give way to a coating palate aftertaste that becomes controlled by the matly notes once again. Nice beer.
