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!

PlainsDrifter (96) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Poured dark brown, with light tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, toast. Slick feel, medium body light carbonation. This has a fairly bitter start with lingering bitterness. Flavor of malt and coffee. Pretty good if you like bitter ale.

Bricks (1180) - Delaware, USA - APR 11, 2018
Solid dark brown-reddish color. not much on the nose.. some dank pine, faint malt. Taste is heavy, thick hops. Mouthfeel is thick, kind of flat. Not a huge fan.

3.8
fillepolo (1266) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2018 Bottle from systembolaget. Pours a bronze like colour beer with a medium head. Fruity and hoppy with notes of caramel and pine. Dry finish.

3.1
OminouSC2 (1085) - Mora, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2018
Unclear amber color, large beige head. Aromas of marmalade, sugar, hops, alcohol and paint(?). Medium bitter taste with hops, rye, alcohol and dried fruit.

3.5
Bewnhur (20) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2018
Smells slightly sour with a thin foam. Tastes rich with malts, hops and spices. I would never suspect that his was 9.7% ABV. Leaves a slight dry after taste and a warming in the belly.

3.8
EerieDrinks (419) - Malm�, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2018
4 finger off-white head. Semi-clear, amber coloured beer.

Aroma is orange and apricot marmalade, bready malts, dried dates, lemon candy and dishcloth.

Taste is lemon candy, dishcloth, blood orange, orange and apricot marmalade, slight earl grey, slight dried dates and a really steady malt base.

Mouthfeel is soft with an equally soft, foamy, medium carbonation. High bitterness. No stickiness. Sadface. Slightly oily. Medium body.

Overall: This is simply great. For me, more a classic, really bitter WC-IPA with some underlying strong ale characteristics. Even though Lagunitas has strayed from craft beer, it's nice that they still can brew a good beer. No big alcohol hints and quite drinkable for the ABV.

- SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2018 Vackert mörkt bärnstensfärgad, med tre cm beige skumkrona. Malt, tall o torkad frukt dominerar doften. Tydlig sötma, fikon o dadlar balanserar tall till en härlig bittersöt brygg, där beskan vinner på slutet. Mycket bra!

3.6
Turtles (3308) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2018
355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a large, dense and lasting white head, rich lacing all around the glass. That hoppy Lagunitas aroma, pine, resin, orange and grass. Silky, full bodied mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Malty sweet taste, caramel backbone, citrus and herbal bitterness, grassy and biscuits. Bittersweet and dry finish. Tasty!

Bebum (1195) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2018
Clear amber, tall head, loose bubbles. Aromatic hoppy nose. Full body, flavor matching in intensity, silky and foamy texture, very hot mouthfeel, good length, hoppy, bitter finish. Assertively bittersweet, crisp. Very balanced hop/malt combination, grapefruit rind, juice and pith, aggressively alcoholic, spices, camomile. Another great Lagunitas work of art. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2018 Pours amber medium white head. Aroma is fruity, silage, hay, some resin, strong pine. Taste is fruity, pine, resin, some silage, soft vegetables, hops, sweetness. Very nice beer!
