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!

Poured into a tulip glass. Thin white head and a caramel-brown color. Very clear. A good mix of piney/resiny and citrus hops on the nose, as well as some molasses.Flavors of citrus, butterscotch, sea salt and brown sugar. Not my favorite style, but this is a pretty interesting take. Different from the sugary-sweet or hop-bomb examples I’ve tried before.

Deep amber, and a moderate cream colored head. Aroma has a biscuit malt presence and plenty of floral and piney hops. Taste is of the biscuit malts balancing with a somewhat aggressive hop profile. Mouthfeel is creamy.

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

Simple, brutal, dangerous tasty brew. Hops carry the flavor but are well-blended overall. The strangest thing is the medium-brown color coupled with the nearly outright white head. Pretty straightforward and extremely easy to drink for a beefcake such as this.

Bottle pours cloudy amber brown with an average head. Lots of floaties! Heavy molasses aroma with some nuttyness. A hint of grapefruit? The flavor is sweet with hints of caramel/candy. Lively bitter finish that sticks to the mouth. Not bad but I think my bottle as past its prime.

BeerGuyTWMore (128) - Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Appearance is intriguing: a mahogoney wih ruby tinge; off-white smooth head. Honey notes overwhelm pine, grapefruit, rose petal, caramel/toffee (some burnt molasses maybe) and some wood on the nose. Flavor characteristics follow suit (lot of resinous citrus) but also some plummy notes-nice creamy medium body. Exceptional!

Good concoction from Lagunitas. Pours a beautiful amber with a thin, tan head. Aroma is a bit piney and a tad punget. Taste is bitter with good, strong hops hops. Heavier body with a dry finish. It’s an American Strong, but to me it’s more of an Imperial ESB, if there is such a thing. Less on the sweeter, caramel, more on the hops and bitterness. Enjoyable, and the 9.87% will creep up on you.
