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!

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2008
2006 bottle. Copper in color with a light head that retained. The nose is filled with citric hops and some caramel/toffee malt. A smooth and full texture with a rich and sweet midpalate that turns to a dry, bitter finish from the hops. Well made and easily drinkable even with the 9.3% alcohol content.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Deep amber with a copper touch. Good clean head with nice lacing and all the fun of a IIPA with a touch of B-Wine. Little bro of Hog Heaven is how I may describe it( a little). I like it and would like to pour it all over my face so it stays with me for a while.

22oz bomber. I really like this brew alot. Very potent. This brew pours the most truely brown color of any I’ve seen as of yet. White head of moderately sized bubbles. Smells of strong hops and a good dose of sweetness, brown sugar maybe. This ain’t no IPA but it sure is bitter. It’s got a great hop bitterness to it. Lots of alcohol on the finish, but in a good way! For a big beer its not very thick. Good carbonation and lots of that hop bitterness baby. This beer tastes great. For anyone who loves hops this is a great ale. I wouldn’t drink too much though, potent!

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2007
22 oz Bomber-Trade w/pepsican. Poured a deep amber color w/a huge foamy tan head w/lasted thru the brew. Floral hop aroma w/a touch of malt. Had a strong hop flavor on first taste, but that initial bite was well balanced by a full malt finish w/touches of roasted almonds & caramel. Well balanced brew. Alcohol was well hidden. Mouthfeel was a little thin, but it did not take away from the enjoyment of this brew. Thanks Andy!

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2007
22oz bottle from SoLan. The nose is a bit light. Grassy hops with a bit of citrus. Some mild caramel and toffee malt. Inoffensive but really nothing spectacular. Pours a nice looking dark copper with a frothy white head leaving excellent lacing. Fairly aggressively hopped for an ASA. Lots of bitter, oily hops with just a bit of malt to back them up. Bitter across the entire tongue. Not quite palate shredding, but close. Medium bodied and fairly creamy. Finishes bitter with some alcohol astringency.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2007
22oz from Immy - thanks, Tim! Very handsome ruby pour, with a big creamy head. A trace of hops in the nose, with some caramel too. But the taste is a real face-wrecker, all bitter hop aggression, like Arrogant Bastard on basement meth. Some sweet malts raise their hands in the back of the class, but this beer lets you know who’s boss.

Flaske. Perfekt humlet ale ;) Seriøst en meget afbalanceret øl hvor balancen gør at humlen netop ikke bliver for meget. Blev meget glædeligt overrasket da bitterheden ikke blev for meget. Super.
