Lagunitas Undercover Investigation

May 18th, 2006 | Posted by Real Beer

The story behind Undercover Investigation Shut-Down Ale from Lagunitas Brewing in California.

What the label says mainly, under the beer’s title, is: “We Brewed This Especially Bitter Ale In Remembrance of the 2005 St. Patrick’s Day Massacre And in Celebration of Our 20-Day Suspension Back in January of This Year!”

“Whatever. We’re Still Here.”

This beer reminds us why we’re glad about that.

Certainly bitter and tilted toward the hop side, but also brimming with rich caramel character bordering on toffee.

    This is a good, bitter beer, very tasty! But, the bottle caps are impossibly stuck on my 6 pack. Seems like the filler machine overfilled or they leaked some of the high gravity brew out, so there is a sticky residue which makes the twist-off a wrist breaker.

    Oh well, everything good is worth struggling for!
