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!

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Poured from a 22oz bottle a dark amber with a reddish tint and an off-white head. Aroma was caramel malt and floral/piney hops. Flavor was malty with a bitter hop and a bit of toffee in the finish.

Poured from a bottle into a tiny plastic lager mug at Brew Fest in Athens, GA. The previous comments comparing this to a dipa are on track, although this proved less bitter and fuller in its malt profile than did other dipas at the Brew Fest. Amber-red in the ridiculously tiny mug from which I drank it, this went down smoothly despite the noticeable alcohol burn. A fine asa, and another worthy offering from Lagunitas.

Billicus (291) - @RED BHUT JOIKIAS!, Paulsboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 29, 2012
aroma, very flora hoppy, some cereal old grainess, color, meduim amber hue, frothy white head, taste my words may not do justice, but a wonderful, front blend of frontal hops and maltness, blended very well smotth bitterness mingled with old malt type cerealness, overall truly a awesome brew and awesome arkwork too!

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pineapple and burnt sugar for aroma. Deep amber in hue with an off white head. Very sweet with a decent amount of hops. I wouldn’t want more the one because of the sweetness. My least favorite Lagunitas Seasonal but still, not a bad Brew.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Clean, dark copper color. Aromatic hops waft from the glass as soon as I start pouring - grapefruit, pine and herbs(not herb.) Strong alcohol and bitter flavors, with a little sweet caramel malt. A very slight higher alcohol off-flavor, paint thinner? Drink it fresh for a DIPA effect, but I bet it would age beautifully for years.

mambossa (289) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours amber gold with off white head. Nose of spruce, nectarine, candied lemon, syrupy sugar and breadiness. Flavor is some dense syrupy honeylike malt with an assertive juicy apricot, tangerine and floral hop bite typical of any ASA. Slick, syrupy, smooth & silky mouthfeel. Pretty nice!

johnbuck100 (288) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Very Complex. Rich, full bodied flavor - lots of hops but not bitter - an earlier comment said that this had an aroma of BBQ sauce - I would go a step further and say it actually has a slight TASTE of BBQ sauce. In a good way. I think. Definitely an earthy caramel flavor to balanced the hops. My original reaction was that I would not want more than one of these at once, but this beer has so much going on that a second bottle may be required. .

Very beautiful cascading reddish amber. Lots of hops, like a Double IPA. Bitterness swells up and stays around. Very tasty brew, lots of flavors hard to pick out. Creamy palate, very full bodied. Real nice job, impressive considering how much hops and alcohol must be packed into this.
