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!

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.

One of the best looking ales poured in a glass. Dark red/orange with just the right amount if head on it. Off to a great start. Got that syrupy taste from most strong ales as well as the hop bitterness to go with it. A slight bit too syrupy and slight presence of alcohol knocks this one down ever so slightly. Still an amazing ale and one I will return too. Lagunitas really knocks em outta the park with their seasonal/limited releases. I am constantly impressed at their offerings. Good job!

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!

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.

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

Chappy's, Dayton, draft. Creamy off-white head, but it fades fast. Looks like a broke ale. No aroma I can discern. Light mouthfeel, big post-swallow hut of bitter, hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Highly aromatic with fruity and earthy hops. A hop forward ale that highlights American hops: citrus, pine, earthy, and resin. Some slight caramel flavor but subdued to the hop profile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. Bottle: Deep copper color with a small ivory head. Great aroma, somewhat sweet but clearly hoppy. Starts out slighty sweet with some vanilla and caramel but transitions on the finish to a sharper, somewhat bitter bite. The body is medium and well suited for this beer. This is one of the best beers that I remember from Lagunitas

A pretty standard strong american ale. You should like it. Be suprised if you didn’t.
