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!

Lagunitas Undercover Investigation Shutdown Ale is a crystal clear, rich amber ale with a dense, frothy, off-white head that thins and leaves outstanding lacing. Sweet, resiny malt and bright, fresh, wooden hops are strong and well balanced in the nose. It’s medium-full bodied and silky smooth with a quick and slightly sticky finish. It tastes sweet, bitter and bold. The flavors are well balanced and blend together to provide a big, fruity (pineapple), wooden, resiny flavor. It’s incredibly drinkable, even at this strength. A very solid American Strong Ale here.

Bottle@Home., label said 9.03%, aged about 18 months. Underrated for sure! This is so powerful and wonderfully balanced in both aroma and flavour. Amazing. One of my favourite beers ever.

Aroma is very light citrus, resin, and caramelly toffee notes. The flavor is citrus up front, then the toffee malt kicks in followed by a slight caramel note. The abv is hidden very well. Be careful with this beer!! It’s very tasty and very potent.

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.

Nice carmel and hop balance. Alcohol presence is definitely there, it could ferment out a bit more. A nice, well made beer to help you forget about a long workday.

screigh (462) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Pours a clear copper color. Fluffy off-white head that sticks around and leaves great lacing. Malty caramel and a even get a hint of coconut in the aroma. Malty and sweet with dark fruits. Nice balance of the bitterness. Some alcohol warming in the finish.

dliberto (172) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2014
Drank from bottle. Nose is citrus, hops, and resin. Taste has a heavy orange presence a little sweet on the tongue with a dry and mildly bitter finish that doesn’t linger. Amazing beer

STEPHENDR (478) - California, USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006 Dark copper hue–thick head fairly long lasting– hoppy, pine tree and anise, a fresh nose - hops, anise, sweet prunes, coconut and a tad of skunk – light/medium body I am surprised at 9.9% - aftertaste is long of pine trees and bittering hops
