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!

Oakes (15651) - 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.

Dedollewaitor (15537) - 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 (15272) - 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.

Quirky little ale. Caramel colored. Very bitter. Reminds me of an English E.S.B. Rated 8/3/08

bhensonb (14090) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Ambery copper color. Little head, but a tendency towards minor lacing. Smells like sour grapefruit mixed with pine. That’s really a good smell. There’s an underlying malty sweetness, but the hops cover that quickly. Smooth, with medium body. Just delightful on the tongue. The hops persist from palate to esophagus.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Bottle. Poured dark hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good complex citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick finish. Medium malty bitter flavor with a medium bitter small alcohol finish of moderate duration.
