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!

Aroma - resiny hops and pine. Citrus fruit. Malt Appearance - orange-red and clear. Beige head that stayed and laced the glass. Taste - Malt forward with a good hop bite on the back end. Nice balance between the malt sweetness and hops Mouthfeel - medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Very drinkable for a 9% beer Overall - a very nice beer. Hides the 9.9% abv dangerously well. Reminds me of a happier version of their brown shugga. Another Trademark clean fermented ale from lagunitas ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska på En Trappa Upp, premiär på Pitchers ölhak, Örebro. Klar mörk bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. En udda, syrlig doft som är svårplacerad. Lite överkokt grönsakskompott och ättika. Medelstor kropp. Ganska stor klibbig beska. Granskott, kåda, kola, kakdeg. Inte alls vad jag förväntade mig. Ruskigt svårplacerad. Känns inte särskilt typiskt för Lagunitas, särskilt inte i den här tyngden. Lite för lätt, och lite för lite!

From 12oz bottle, purchased single at Trader Joe’s for about $1.50, poured into 16oz tulip glass

Aroma: caramel, spruce, citrus, grass, floral,

Appearance: orange, hazy, tan foam, frothy,

Taste: very bitter, light sweetness,

Palate: medium to full body, sticky, creamy, average carbonation, bitter, long finish,

Overall: A nice bitter ale. Great aroma with what smells like American hops with citrus and piney aromas. Nice body and head. Very delicious. I’d never guess that it was 9%. Very smooth. Only a slight (very slight) hint of alcohol on the finish.

Best beer I’ve had in a month. Wow. Clear copper pour with a white head. Aroma and taste of fruits and brown sugar without being sugary. Cherries. Hint of caramel. Sweet but not too much. Transparent with nothing overpowering anything else. So very good. Alcohol well hidden. Absolutely delicious.

Pours clear reddish orange. Aroma of tropical fruits and some grapefruit. Really interesting and unique taste with mix of fruits but strong grapefruit. Strange aftertaste though.

Smells mostly of cherries with some malts and hints of caramel. Nice copper color. Taste of candy carries and dry fruit. Malty backbone with slight booze flavor. Nice sweet creamy finish. Med body with light carbonation. Quite a delightful strong fruit beer, nice work.

rentonj7 (146) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2016
Deep reddish copper with a generous lasting head. Sweet biscuit malts on aroma, cherry, caramel, starfruit. Much boozier in mouth, medium balance of sweet and bitter. Long creamy finish - carbonation is soft but I think what’s helping the creaminess. Some bitterness and notes of pine. Pretty nice.
