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!

Poured a warm honey color with about a half inch off-white head that quickly disappeared leaving no lace. Great aroma - this is what really sold me on this beer, biggest note in the scent is straight sour cherries - a great sweet subtle bitterness to play off the hops and the bite in the taste. Great crisp mouthfeel and enjoyable from start to finish. Very refreshing, a lot going on in the appeal of this beer.

Lagunitas Undercover Shutdown Pours dark copper with a medium white head. Somewhat sweet resiny hop aroma is the overwhelming characteristic with some citrus as well. Flavor is bittersweet caramel and resin hops. Yummy as hell with a nice bite. Will drink more. Smells good. Big.

Bottle 355ml, from Systembolaget. Clear copper with a white head. Grassy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, some raisin, caramel. More general fruit characteristics and maltiness when it warms up. Medium body, round, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Some warmness, a bit of alcohol in the nose, but not in the mouth. Nice, would buy again.

White head with hoppy aroma. smells like it’s gonna be hoppy. yup. it is. oh. don’t stop.yes. love it. It’s got some bitter-sour feel to it. Looks like ale. Tastes like white-ale. Tang and herbs. I know, i know, sounds contradictory but it screams cirtus with herby tint. It’s damn good. drink 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

Pours amber with active carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, with a strong piney hop aroma. There is a good balance between the malt and hops, although both are very strong. Taste is mostly a blast of hops with some candy and caramel flavors. Mouthfeel is light, ends sticky. Alcohol is very present but not overpowering, just enough to let you know you’re drinking a serious beer. Serious business. LIke totally srsly. Undercover srs.

Bottle, "12 fluid oz’s ...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. Body’s 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.
