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!

marv3mania (176) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2013
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.

Tap from Bishop Arms in Helsingborg. Smells is complex of wheat, bread, malts and caramel. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Taste is strong and equally complex and has tones of hazelnuts and some dried fruits. The palate is full and rich, a nice feeling. Overall another nice beer from Lagunitas.

Tyvärr lite för hög halt av procenten 9,9 eftersmaken var härlig på denna söta öl skummet var stabilt som sakta sjönk ihop

12fl oz bottle. Pours a clear caramel with a one finger, white head that laces well and has nice legs.

Overall a really nice strong. Juicy hop flavours mixed with caramel, alcohol, and a touch of dark fruits.
