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!

Not much in the way of aroma. Color is standard golden with a thin head. Taste is great! Palate is great. Lots of malt and that balances out the hops. Great drinkable Beer!

Wow, a really well put together beer. The nose was full of bread, grapefruit, brown sugar and butter. It starts off with a nice balance of sweet and bitter, and has a long, bitter finish. The palate brings lively carbonation with a bit of a chalky feel. This beer greets you well on every dimension!

Gorgeous the color of true amber... pours with a big fluffy tan head. The big piney resiny hop aroma jumps out along with the head... sure as the beer warms some alcohol peeks thru Another Imperial Red like... or light American Barleywine? Very well made beer... as the truck load of hop bitterness and flavor (resiny, citrus) runs the taste buds over... a good size malt note follows up to provide succor with caramel, toast to be beat up by the alcohol warmth and raked over the lingering dryness I am torn... Right now this beer is unapologetically out of balance and interesting in its own way ... some age may help tame the resiny hops and meld a little. So do what I did, get 2 bottles taste one now and age the other Cheers to Lagunitas for an interesting beer

Very good beer. Sweet hop aromas and earthy hop taste. Dark copper color. Very bitter and oh so delicious.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2012
At first aroma is sweet but finishes with a hoppy note. Little to no head. Almost clear golden brown color. Has a hoppy taste with a strong lingering bitter finish.

Pours a deep amber with a small head. Very nice bitterness and a good intergration of roasted malts. Very well done.

Bottle. Smooth, a little sweet, buttery. Copper. This was the perfect beer for tonight.

This is the "SNEAK RELEASE" not the "12th Anniversary" edition. Wouldn’t put this in the IPA or IIPA genera; I’d like it in the Strong Ale category. Yes it is a hoppy beer, but the spice profile in the malts give this a big big boost. Not as good as Mendicino’s Eye of the Hawk, but better than Stone’s Arrogant Bastard. A bit chalky on the palate. Nice buzz though. Good, but I wouldn’t rave about it...

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

Wow, one of the best "nose’s" I’ve ever smelled out of a bottle! Great off-white creamy head that seems to last. Super sticky lace- all the way down. Man it just coats the glass. Dark amber color. Burst of wonderful hoppy flavor first sip. Man this is it! Even still a nice malty balance. We had it our vertical pale/IPA tasting, last weekend, and it was the winner! I sure hope this becomes a regular bottling!
