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!

Pours murky gold with a quick white head. Nose is west coast hops with apple and a little booze. Malts play a bigger role in the flavor than the hops and are surprisingly dry and bready. Alcohol is well hidden. Definitely rides the line with double IPAs and is quite tasty.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Fresh aroma of malt and light hops. Clear dark amber color, frothy two-finger tan head that stays, bubbly lace cobwebs. Taste is strong malt with some caramel that adds light carbonation and hops on the swallow, then moves easily to a long sweet and bitter finish that shows a little unsweetened tea. Big, but not heavy, but awfully strong for general drinking. I could buy it again.

Pretty good, not an IPA like I usually have but a "strong ale" which was dark and strong. Had a good initial taste with no heavy aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorite beers and wish it was available year round. The flavor is first bitter ( like a good IPA) then smooth and a nice pour with a good head. The taste is so smooth you cannot have just one.

Flaska p En Trappa Upp, premir p Pitchers lhak, rebro. Klar mrk brnstensfrgad med vitt skum. En udda, syrlig doft som r svrplacerad. Lite verkokt grnsakskompott och ttika. Medelstor kropp. Ganska stor klibbig beska. Granskott, kda, kola, kakdeg. Inte alls vad jag frvntade mig. Ruskigt svrplacerad. Knns inte srskilt typiskt fr Lagunitas, srskilt inte i den hr tyngden. Lite fr ltt, och lite fr lite!

From 12oz bottle, purchased single at Trader Joes 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. Id never guess that it was 9%. Very smooth. Only a slight (very slight) hint of alcohol on the finish.

Best beer Ive 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.
