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!

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 Forgotten rating from Sept. 17, 2011. Clear copper tinted amber body with a thin cap of yellowish off white head. The nose is of light caramel and toffee sweetness with a big NW grapefruit hop. Very hop forward nose with nice resinous sweet nose. The middle is malty and sweet with a caramel and bready malt combined with huge hop grapefruit. The finish is moderately well hopped with a dry resinous finish. Overall, unbalanced slightly, but this is definately something I expect from Lagunitas.

Nutty aroma. Pretty hot alcohol wise up front. Trying to figure out what this beer is supposed to offer.

Amber color with a light beige head. Very sweet and fruity aroma; citrus, apples, and grape. Strong resin flavor. Relatively crisp on the palate with an astringent finish.

Big fuck off DIPA. Slightly sticky body, some full caramel and soft toffee sweetness. A big ol’ bunch of fat hops on top. Alcohol is a little too prominent for me. Ubiquitous sum up - Good, without being great.

jnkor (326) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Aroma is hoppy and sweet, a little malty. Color is a clear brownish red with almost no head. Taste is citrus and sweet, and almost floral. Feels like a high abv. Finish is a little slimy.

KyotoLefty (7870) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle from Yamaichi. Big hoppy nose, grass and citrus, with lots of caramel and some chocolate underneath, plus dried fruit, plum, and some boozey solvents. Medium amber orange with a low fine head. Rich, sweet, bitter, strong. Wow. Caramel, fudge, grass, pine, lots of alcohol (too much, actually). Tasty, though, and very hoppy. Long bitter burn. Far too bitter, unbalanced, and boozy to be great, but pretty good.

Suttree (5579) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Caooper, foamy tan head. Molasses, woodsy and almost mettallic aroma. Big piney, resinous hops up front. Very dry, and the flavors is, well, hoppy. Very. Nice smooth malt undertone, but the bitterness is the main focus here. Sampled at Noogfest2

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle: Pellucid tawny, awesome head and light lacing. Nose is humid with light hops, wood and wet-doggy caramel. The flavor is balanced, nice bitterness and sweetness level along with a bit of additional caramel. Light asparagus in the finish along with a mild slap of alcohol. Awful nose but everything else is nice.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2006
[bottle] Dark amber color, with a dense foamy head that quickly dissolves. Aroma is hoppy- as expected, with plenty of malty, caramel notes as well. Flavors are immediately dry and bitter- turning to a sweetness that takes over over and lets the alcohol really come through. Not a bad beer, but in the grand scheme of hopped-up Californian beers, this is kind of overly sweet.
