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!

Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville, $1.80. Pours a clear amber-brown with a small head. Grapefruit nose - hops hops hops. Nice smooth mellow hops - grapefruit - followed by a light malt. Very well balanced.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Location: Had this stuff on draft at The Gate in Brooklyn, 5/30/10

Aroma: The nose is malty, some ripe fruit notes, caramel
Appearance: It pours a clearish caramel color
Flavor: The flavor was light-med sweet upfront, long bitter finish
Palate: It is a medium-full bodied brew
Overall Impression: This was a pretty solid beer. Another quality Lagunitas offering.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2010
This beer seems like the thought child of a barleywine that didn’t stay quite sweet enough. It has some of the flavors, the hops and the color for a barleywine, but doesn’t quite reach it. It’s a very good and flavorful ale, but seemed almost like a failed barleywine.

thirdeye11 (5952) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
(Draught at Flying Saucer Lake beer festival) deep copper, lasting tan head and nice lacing. Nose of oranges, sweet sticky caramel, and spicy. Taste is orange marmalade, spicy hops, creamy and sweet bread. Body is sticky, sweet, syrupy and lightly creamy as well. Alcohol is well hidden considering the ABV.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Flavor is big on hops, caramel, brown sugar. Surprisingly mild given the IBU/ABV, but very drinkable.

Cavie (4101) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Fratto. Pours a rich reddish orange with a healthy head. Lovely hop aroma right off the bat. Lots of pine and spiced varieties. Taste is bittersweet. Sweetness takes a strong hold right off the bat with dry hoppiness. Finishes dry and earthy. Good.

patricks110 (2357) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2011
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.

Ataraxia (450) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2012
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.

jonno (2409) - JAPAN - JUL 21, 2012
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.
