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!

Fits the style quite well. Arrogant Bastard-esque with some Red Rocket on the side. It has the whole copper malt meets resiny hops with a touch of caramel and toffee on the side thing going on. Pretty solid. Nothing to really complain about, other than it is nothing outstanding. Standard Lagunitas - ya know?

(sneak release not 12th anniversary) bottle poured an amber in color with a nice two finger head that quickly settled down to a ring of foam. smell is hops, pines, slight citrus, and malts. taste is full of hops but not too bitter, has a good dose of malt to give it a nice consistency. somewhat thick in a creamy way with a little alcohol burn in the finish (but hey it is 9.28abv.) nothing i can say bad about the beer and it does seem to fit the style well.

Bottle. Hard to comment on the color as I had it outside at night. Looks amberish. Aroma is malty w/floral hops. Very full mouthfeel with strong sugary malts and bitter hops. Finishes fairly alcoholic. Powerful.

It pours a nice amber/medium amber color to it. Oh!...My!!!...God! Hoppy as hell! I love it! Piny/Floral hoppy notes to it as well as grapefruity/fruity notes. This beer is hoppy, hoppy, hoppy and even more hoppy! Piny/floral hop taste. Thick/syrupy malty taste. Amazing! The after taste is a bit fruity. Which is great!

Lagunitas surprised me with this one. Im not overly fond of hoppy brews, but this one is quite pleasing. The nose is strongly hoppy with a solid pine underlay. The hops did come through like gangbustes, but very well balanced with nice caramel and pleasing pine nuts, with a slight bit of ginger in the background. The strong alcohol content is well masked, making this beer as dangerous as it is drinkable.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Big pine, citrus aroma with a decently big caramel malt base. Brutish, but with that comfortable California aroma I expect. The body is a lustrous amber-hued brown and holds a lasting, thin tan head. The first sip is mostly piney hops, but the malt comes through more than expected and is in fact quite warm and substantial like oven fresh bread dipped in honey-caramel-butter. The finish is full of resiny hops and what a dollop would taste like if you melded every sweet food you could serve in dollop form.

riversideAK (6231) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Bitter citrus and pine aroma on top of a murky dark amber colored beer. A little bit of a sweet fruity candy aroma emerges as it warms as well. Strongly bitter with a little bit of sweetness that peaks through for balance. Thie bitterness of the hops really covers up alot of the alcohol as there is only a slightly warming finish. This one could be dangerous at 9.28% alcohol, as it is thirst quenching and quaffable.

Pours a golden amber with a small white head. Hops and fruit in the aroma. Sweetness is nicely balanced with a bitter and slightly alcohol finish. Nice velvet mouth feel. Very nice beer.

22oz bottle, smells like an IPA but tastes like an IPA which switches into something different a balance of maltiness and some other taste. this one could do with some aging i feel to mellow the hops, no detection of the 9.28% abv, seems like a supercharged ESB, but nothing too special
