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!

Bottle, "12 fluid ozs ...of hops, malt, hops, hops, yeast, hops, water, and hops." Pours an orangey-copper with a very small head. Aroma of malty sweetness with some leafy hops. Flavor is rich and sweet on the tip of the tongue with citrusy/floral hops on the back. Finishes medium-dry with a defined but comfortable bitterness. Bodys pretty normal. Good stuff.

Poured a clear amber with a thick eggshell color head. Aroma is citrus, herbs, spruce, caramel, toast, and grass. Taste is grapefruit, pine, grass, caramel, floral with a very bitter and slightly sweet aftertaste. P.S. this will get you drunk quick.

pours clear copper with small head that diminishes. aroma is very fruity with a good amount of grapefruit and a good amount of crystal malt sweetness. taste is very hoppy with some tropical fruit and grapefruit. this beer has a lot of crystal sweetness and pretty bitter finish.

Clear ruby amber colour, light frothy white head. Crazy hoppy aroma. All hops, all bitter, very palate-cleansing. Or stripping.

Lagunitas seems to be the king of making good but not quite exceptional beers, particularly those with a high dose of both hops and malt. Another solidly enjoyable ASA, a bit darker with more sweet malt than their Lucky 13 but still hopped up and full bodied. Considering its large ABV, solid flavor, and extremely reasonable price (4$ for a bomber), its well worth a purchase.

Caramel, followed by some nice malt and a bit of hoppyness (as an aside, Pursuit of Hoppiness sounds like a good name for a beer). Maybe a little too much caramel. But then again, maybe not, since i still like it.

4/9/15. Bottle purchased July, 2013. Same rating I originally gave it but definitely a different beer. Still had a big sticky head and cooper color. Nose a bit of a funky edge. Mouth has got big and round. A little less boozy with less of a bite. However still real big with lots of dark smoky notes coming through. Lots of fun ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2012 Pours a clear reddish color with minimal head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt and hops. Taste is a combination of sweetness and grapefruit. The finish is initially bitter and then there is some lingering sweetness. Alcohol is hidden well considering the close to 10% abv. I had to update my rating because after having several of these I would prefer if the beer was a little less sweet.

12 oz. bottle. Pour is crystal clear copper amber, with an off white head and lots of carbonation. Caramel and bread aroma with citrusy hops. Getting a sweet citrus quality, like mango or pineapple along with some bitter grapefruit. Taste is consistent with the aroma. Plenty of caramel, brown sugar malt with pineapple, banana along with a good citrusy hop bitterness. Alcohol doesn't taste big, but you can feel it a bit on the way down and a bit in the aftertaste. Overall this is quite good.

scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Kinda light fozzy brown head. Aroma is hops and light roasted Malta with a slight sweet smell in the end. Taste like arrogant bastard little brother with more alcohol. Not bad light hops full bodied. Bit of an alcohol bite.
