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 clear orange-tinged red, slight head, no lacing. Aroma is vinous, herbal, earthy, caramel. The sweetness is well balanced by the copious amount of hops. Very rich, complex flavor, nice finish. I would consider this to be an Imperial Red IPA. This beer has some balls!

12-oz bottle. Ap - Pours with a frothy, three-finger thick, tan colored head and leaves a good bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer is a brilliantly clear, concentrated amber color. Ar - The aroma is a heady mix of malt, but mostly hops that is noticeable as soon as I start to pour this brew. Notes of candied orange peel mix with citrus flavored caramel toffees, some notes of apricot and even some tangerine notes. There is a tiny bit of alcohol in the nose as well, and when mixed with the citrus. A touch of herbaceous pine rounds out the aroma. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. P - The beer is hefty enough, as it tends to linger on the palate and even has a bit of stickiness to it. T - The beer is sweet and malty up front, which really amplifies the fruity-citrusy hop notes. However the hops are the dominant note in this beer, with notes of red grapefruit, apricot and tangerine found up front. Towards the end an herbal, almost pine like, solid bitterness starts to take hold and lingers on in a long bitter finish. O - And the beer is not so thick and rich as to keep this from being pretty drinkable. It has a definite warming effect like a trippel but with more hops. A very nice brew.

bomber from north belt west liqour. pours an impressive ruby red/brown color with an off-white bubbly head. slightly sweet caramel malt aroma with perfumy hops. velvety smooth presence in the mouth with a satisfying aromatic hop bitterness. toasty and dry with a touch of toffee coming through in the middle.

six pack 10.99. Excellent Double IPA. Sweet, citrusy, and strong. One of my favorite styles, and this Lagunitas offering is solid.

Nice sweetness that hides the high abv. Caramel and malts with a slight hop presence.

Strife21 (338) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2014
Pours dark copper with nice white head. Smell is hops, citrus, sugar and malt. Taste is sweet and hoppy at first then backed my a solid malt finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Good. I had a very small tasting from a friend. It was the last bottle so I couldn't get a good eval. It's definitely worth trying again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is filled with flowers and dried fruit. Taste is roasted nuts and bitter hops. A bit sweet with alcohol tones.

1more4dessert (336) - Upstate, New York, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Clear amber with thin minimal head. Aroma is intoxicating mix of fruity hop and maple/brown sugar. Body is lighter than one might expect. Not overly sugary or alcoholic. Like a mellow light barley wine melded with an IPA. I am enjoying it.

jrmac (335) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Outstanding, Tastes more like an Imperial IPA rather then a strong ale to me. Great copper color, bitter hop aroma and flavor, a little citrus, and even a little malt hiding inside.
