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. Amber-ruby color with an off-white head. Grapefruit aroma with pine and some malt. Pine, fruity (mostly summer fruit - simcoe?) flavor with rich malts. Great fruity aftertase. Alcohol is noticeable. Full flavored and fuller bodied. You can keep drinking this for a long time and not grow tired of it.

This American Strong Ale pours a deep cooper color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral hops, caramel malts and sweet. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. This beer has been described as an Imperial Mild. If it is not that it’s a Imperial ESB/Bitter. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are mostly grapefruit and floral, but there is a strong earthiness here as well. Despite all the hops and malts, and it does have a very strong hop bite, it is very smooth tasting. Not that I would expect anything else from Lagunitas. It does have the longest beer name I have ever seen, and I am sure that there is an interesting story behind the name. There is but I won’t go into it here. Lagunitas continues to break the envelope of beers. Keep it up guys. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.
