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!

Awktoberfest (289) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JUN 5, 2014
A good beer. Just different from my favorite lags "strong ale". I love the hops and this has em. Good up front sweet hop aroma. A little sweet in taste but is very quickly evacuating my glass. Lagunitas has a nice beer portfolio for the every man beer drinker. And this adds to that. A good beer worth having a glass or bottle or whatever you prefer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Rated on 5-31-2014 at 800 Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft beer has a small off-white head with a short retention, transparent copper body, very little carnbonation observed, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, herbal, citrus, and bitter hops. The flavor is semi-sweet, moderately bitter, caramel malt, alcohol, and citrus hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This is beer is very quaffable, worth trying but it is a bit too bitter tasting for my liking.

Beautiful hoppy caramel aroma. Crisp copper with a thin head. A nice session ale flavour with a big alcohol number. Syrupy and thick. Caramel hop flavour. Nice but not stellar.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2007
22 oz bottle. Poured a clear dark orange color. Head was thick, off white, and left some decent lace behind. Aroma was of light malty molasses, minimal grapefruity hops, dried cherry, raisin, and soy. I also detected occasional notes of hot dog and yellow mustard. I didn’t drink this one anywhere near a hot dog stand, so it wasn’t a matter of smelling someone else’s lunch. Medium bodied and slightly sweet. The sweetness gave way to assertive hop bitterness that really lays into the tongue at the end and lingers. Tasted of malty caramel, whisky, and toffee. I also wonder if there was a bit of peated malt used to make this one. Interesting beer, but didn’t go down as one of my favorites.
