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!

Smells awesome, just like most of other Lagunitas offerings...sugary, citrusy, sticky. Pours reddish-copper with not too much head. Whatever lacing there was just kind of dripped down the glass into the beer. Thin mouthfeel does not exactly fit expectations set by the big aroma. Tastes of caramel, pine, maple syrup. Long, lingering bitter finish that for some reason doesn’t sit well with me. Interesting beer, but I probably would try others over getting this one again.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Pours a lighter brown with a thin tan head. Smell is moderately hoppy. Taste is of bitter and sweet hops. Decent but not nearly the hop bomb I was expecting.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2006
A significant white head on yellow body. Pine resin significant aroma with malt. Very bitter and dry Irish style IPA, big everything with harsh malting. It was drinkable and a hop fix, but not excellent. Alcohol creeps up as it warms. OK for this style.

Citrus hops, caramel malts, icing sugar, oranges and pine greet the nose. Clear, burnished copper coloured body topped by a low, off white/tan head that recedes to a lasting cover. Huge, thick, caramel maltiness is overly sweet despite strong citrus, pine hops and moderate bitterness. Some floral notes in the aftertaste. Yeast feels quite present. Medium full body with moderate carbonation. Going Away Party.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Clear amber with a modest white head. Mix of grapefruit, pine, caramel, pekoe, and sawdust in the aroma. Robust and smooth in the mouth. Good flavor. Caramel sweetness tempered with some citrus bitterness.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 The aroma is rich with lightly toasted and caramel malts. The hops are slightly piny and grassy. The appearance is deep amber with an average head. The flavor is astringently bitter with moments of paper and caramel. The palate is thin. The aroma here is the BEST ever, but sadly the flavor does not match it.

Getting notebook online. Pours a dark orange. Lots of sweet malts and pine flavors. A decent beer.

a- pours a clear, brown hue with a creamy white head that is mostly diminishing with fair lacing throughout s- aroma of sweet citrus hops and caramel malts t- fairly well-balanced ale that is slightly underwhelming for a DIPA, initial flavor is of citrus and pine hops, followed by caramel/toffee malts, subtle alcohol in the finish m- medium-bodied ale with adequate carbonation d- Balanced and warm DIPA that is smooth drinking, the abv is very well-masked, not the hoppiest DIPA, but a solid entrant in this category

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 6, 2009
Dark golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of caramel and candy with grass and grapefruit hops. Sweet sugary flavour with a harsh hop bitter finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2009
Bottle at Flying Saucer, Houston. Pours an average amber with a lifeless body. Aroma is grapefruit, hops, and a touch of tangerine. Flavor is an initial rush of grapefruit and hops, but it tapers off into a floral copper taste. Average mouthfeel. If not for the tapering of taste, it would rock.
