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!

VinegarStroke (414) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle: Light haze, deep copper, light head and a good lace. Big hoppy lift. Loads of malt. Some caramel and citrus. Dry to off dry, not sour, bitter and almost finishes sweet. Very fruit. Loads of orange and mandarin. The mid palate is fresh but the finish is heavy. This beer could knock you out. A little over the top.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.18.14. A: 2 1/2 finger head. See through red. S: Pine, grapefruit, ketchup, malt. T: Sweet malt, grapefruit, ketchup. Caramel is there too. M: Creamy smooth. O: Sweet malt comes on first, then grapefruit, ketchup, and some alcohol burn at the end. The malt turns into caramel which lingers. It was like a barleywine, but with a little less hop presence. The alcohol burn was not as strong as I thought that it would be.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Pours a clear, orangish-red color with a small white head. Sharp pine aroma dominates, but not overrun by hops. Malts stand out here as well, nicely contrasting the fresh hop character. Bitter biting finish. Deceptively light.

Smells of caramel and toffee with a noticeable hop. Taste is the same. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

Pretty hoppy, but enough maltiness to offset it a bit... pretty good beer :-)

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Poured orange with a white head, nice citrus hop aroma. Flavor was very malty balanced by the ever present citrus hops. A solid beer that I can drink too much of too quickly, goes down too easy for a 9%+ beer.

Awktoberfest (404) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2014
A good beer. Just different from my favorite lags "strong ale". I love the hops and this has em. Good up front sweet hop aroma. A little sweet in taste but is very quickly evacuating my glass. Lagunitas has a nice beer portfolio for the every man beer drinker. And this adds to that. A good beer worth having a glass or bottle or whatever you prefer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Pours a clear amber color with a large ivory head. The nose is on the weak side - with gentle notes of pine, citrus, and hops. Mild malt flavors are dominated by strong citrus, pine, and hop flavors, with a good hop kick in the finish.
