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!

Nice amber color, hazy. Very good malt, both the aroma and flavor; strong mouthfeel, just showing some alcohol, extreme but well balanced. Good hopping. Very good.

Travlr (15082) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Draught at Birreria Paradiso. Amber color, solid white head and lacing. Aroma of fresh hops and pine. Full bodied malt taste with a smoke edge. Very nice.

yngwie (14905) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, golden body with a dense, beige head. Lovely beef-stock aroma, malty, caramelly, sweetish and with a lovely hoppyness. Malty and sweet flavor, pine and resin also playing a major part, nice bitterness, and some beef-stock notes. Full to medium body. So bitter it almost feels stinging in the mouth. Long, piney and resiny finish. Love the hop-profile in this one, and it’s sort of balanced as well, with all its maltyness. (080314)

Gbbf 2012. wow now that is good. Like a hoppy barley wine. Some overt sweetness true. The aroma is magical. Promises so much. Some burn and heat on finish. But its pretty beery good. Lovely beer. A sipper.

Dedollewaitor (14486) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 13, 2008
Bottle@Olbaren,Copenhagen. My 1400th rating. Pours hazy amber with a creamy lasting head & lacings. Aroma & taste have loads of fruity hops - pineapple/grapefruit, & a sweet barley/caramel note. Full & smooth palate. Fresh & crisp. Bitter lasting end. One of the better Lagunitas brews!

MiP (14046) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2011
Draught, 9.97%. Cloudy dark red colour. Small white head. The flavour is quite roasted, quite malty, and quite bitter. Malt syrup notes. Rather slimy mouthfeel. Vinous aftertaste. OK beer, but a bit rough around the edges.

Leighton (13527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2010
Tap at Mudville 9, NYC. Awesome, awesome, awesome. I’d probably classify this as an IPA. Pours orange-gold with a medium, pure white head. Very sweet, citrus fruity aroma with loads of caramel malts. The primary characteristic of this beer is a sweet, sugary maltiness, but the hops are undeniable. Some pine and resin, but light. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Alcohol gives the beer some nice depth but is not overbearing. Loved this beer.

Oakes (13271) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2006
Draught: Archer Ale House, Bellingham, WA. Bright copper colour. The aroma is slightly floral with brown sugar notes and woody hoppiness. Bitter, woody hop character with slightly chewy brown sugar malts. The finish is a bit astringent and alcoholic. Not really sure where they’re going with this. It shows me nothing new and isn’t particularly palatable. These flavours and aromas are better served as instruments in an orchestra rather than being the whole band.
