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!

Viper666 (2811) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2007
Bouteille, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur ambrée foncée et transparente. Nez de houblon résineux et citrique, fruité (agrumes sucrées, léger d’abricots), malté de caramel toffee sucré avec des notes d’alcool doux, de pain et de thé glacé. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture crémeuse et résineuse. Assez amer de houblon résineux, citrique (pamplemousse) et aux notes terreuses (qui dure toute la gorgée) avec un goût fruité (agrumes sucrées, léger d’abricots, notes de pêche) et de faibles notes boisées lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel sucré, léger de toffee rôti et de pain parallèlement à un moyen-léger goût d’alcool (légèrement réchauffant) puis en finale, l’on assiste à un léger de regain d’amertume de houblon plus citrique, asséchant et légèrement herbeux. Post-goût long et moyennement sec, amer de houblon résineux, citrique, herbeux et aux notes terreuses avec un léger goût d’alcool et des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes) et boisées.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 15, 2007
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a deep ruby red with a nice fluffy white head that left good lacing. Nose of pine hops and fruits. Smooth full bodied mouthfeel. Flavor of hops, caramel, fruit, and there was a nice bitter finish. Alcohol is present, but is not obtrusive. Good brew.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle . Poured deep brown red with a large white head. Much lacing. Hoppy, piney aroma. Full mouthed flavour with much hoppiness, slight malt with no taste of alcohol. This is amazingly smooth. Finish lasts forever, is felt all throughout the mouth.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Pours a dark brownish color with some red hints to it. A slight head is there upon the pour. Smell is slightly hoppy. The taste is very bitter. Surprisingly with the amount of bitterness it goes down fairly smoothly. Considering it’s ABV and bitterness this is a pretty decent beer.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2007
2007 Bottle: Pours a beautiful crystal ruby red with a big 2-3 finger white fluffy head. Quite a pretty beer to look at in my goblet. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops with just a little malt underneath. Flavor is malty and moderately bitter but has a big hop flavor at the end and some lingering bitterness. Small amount of fruit esters come through. Slight alcohol warmth. This seems much more hoppy than last years and like a completely different beer than i remember. I think this is really an Imperial IPA.

alexanderj (3433) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of caramel malt, metallic hops, fruit and heinz ketchup. Flavor was good, and got better with time. Good palate and mouthfeel. Nice caramel mlat flavor, which started to dominate the hop presence. I liked that. Hops were ok for me. Pretty good overall.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt and some citrus hops. The body is good with significant malt, however, it kind of tastes like a dry-hopped american strong ale. I don’t appreciate the dry-hopped flavor.
