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!

Wonderful smell and nice dark colour. Sweet taste with caramel hints perfectly balanced with the bitterness and great balance of alcohol and taste.

Gorgeous glowing mahogany with a cream colored head that disapates quickly, minimal lacing. Aroma of bread, candied citrus, cherries & alcohol. Bitter & sweet flavors are balanced masterfully in this one. Voluptuous feel on the palate. Very urbane Lagunitas brew.

Palme (4337) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2016
0.355l bottle brought home from BarleyWine. Lots and lots of a big tall foamy almost fluffy head in this one! Off-white colored and under a cloudy almost copper amber body. It smells really nice. Lots of malty biscuity elements. Sweetish, red berry fruity and it just oozes American style barley wine this. Whom doesnt like that? Its as sweet and near sticky in the taste as the aroma suggested. Sugary, syrupy and definitely boozy! Warming. It has a really soft carbonation level and a good oily texture in the mouth. Bitter nuts combined with sweet biscuits, melon zest, alcohol and red berries I guess sums this one up quite nicely. Nice and classic in the taste, loaded with flavors. A nice sipper. 27.05.2015

Aroma sweet malt, orange candy, booze. Appearance is a copper with a sheet of head and lines of lace. Taste is caramel, biscuit, orange, pine. Palate is medium bodied with a bittersweet finish. Overall- interesting, kind of a DIPA / Barleywine.

bergstaden (2625) - Rros, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2016
Dark golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma - Malt body to support a hop profile that has fruity flavours and bitterness - The malt and fruityness goes into the finish - This was good

danielst (383) - AUSTRIA - SEP 24, 2016
On tap: Dark orange. Sweet candy malt aroma, a lightly nutty and toasty malt flavor with a light citric note. Sweet and barley wine-y but not cloying at all.

Rien nest en retenue dans celle-ci mais cest tout de mme trs bon. Lalcool est trop prsent mon got mais lamertume est parfaite pour le style. Ctait trs rsineux et trs peu effervescent.

Draft: Poured a copper with a white colored head. Aroma was metallic and hops. Taste is light hops with a huge malt backbone.

To my taste, not the kind of IPA I typically enjoy - it's more about the bitterness than the hoppiness in this one. Glad I tried it, but not one I'd go for again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
