COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the worlds would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patricks 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!

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, golden body with a dense, beige head. Lovely beef-stock aroma, malty, caramelly, sweetish and with a lovely hoppyness. Malty and sweet flavor, pine and resin also playing a major part, nice bitterness, and some beef-stock notes. Full to medium body. So bitter it almost feels stinging in the mouth. Long, piney and resiny finish. Love the hop-profile in this one, and its sort of balanced as well, with all its maltyness. (080314)

This is a spectacular looking beer! Pours a beautiful deep topaz color into a pint glass with a huge, pillowy head that lasts forever. Lacing all the way down the glass. One of the best looking beers Ive ever seen! Aromas of fresh hops. Not overpowering, but very fresh smelling. Slightly fruity and flowery. Taste is very nice. Definitely bitter and hoppy, but not to the point of being overdone. A sweetness as well, but just enough to compliment the hops. Im not sure I completely agree with the style for this beer. When I think of double IPAs, I think of over-the-top hoppiness and a very malty backbone. This beer seems more of a strong ale. But dont get me wrong; I really like this and think it is very good!! Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Some bitterness remains on the palate after enjoying a mouthful. I have to say that as I write this review and drink this beer, the head is still amazing!!! Overall, this beer is exceedingly drinkable, but I know the ABV will catch up to me. Even so, I have to give it a high drinkabiltiy score, because it goes down so easily! Highly recommended. If you see it, pick it up and take it home.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2008
(22 oz bottle) copper dark brown with generous tan head. Sweetish malt aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel malt and pine hops. I thought I would like it better, but somehow the flavors just didnt mesh well for me.

Boutip (6214) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured a medium copper color ale with an average size head with some medium retention and no lacing. Aroma of dry bitter hops is dominating with very subtle caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry bitter notes with very little else coming through expect subtle caramel malt. Average body with some medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Definitely not something I would want to have again, I thought this was one-dimensional and the malt profile was also indiscernible and no floral hops.

[email protected],Copenhagen. My 1400th rating. Pours hazy amber with a creamy lasting head & lacings. Aroma & taste have loads of fruity hops - pineapple/grapefruit, & a sweet barley/caramel note. Full & smooth palate. Fresh & crisp. Bitter lasting end. One of the better Lagunitas brews!

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy dull amber gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through about two-thirds of the glass and left some light lace. Pleasant aroma of sweet citrus and pine. The flavor is initially caramel and sweet, which is then partially washed over with pine, and to a lesser extent grapefruit bitterness. The caramel lingers in the background, while the sweetness remains more prominent and compliments the bitterness at the finish. Kind of like a sweet-n-sour dish, only this is sweet-n-bitter. A solid beer.

Radek Kliber (7290) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle 650 ml
Appearance: Amber-rosy ale with medium bright white top 3+
Nose :Very potent high alpha acid hop aroma, sweet fruity medium with vanilla and berry ending. 7+
Flavor/Palate : medium bodied, bold blend of malt (with chewy texture) and hops. Green leaf with raw mango . Noticeable slightly dry alcohol, yet overall quiet smooth and non intrusive. Slightly raw acidic finish. Solid brew found here , but I would not call it exceptional .
