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!

Pours a two finger cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Nice clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts bitter sweet, that becomes more bitter but not overpowering, with a lingering bitter aftertaste. $3.29 for a 22oz bottle from John’s Market Tigard, Or.

Oaky, hoppy,spicey aroma, almost gingery, sweet almost sugary malt taste upfront,followed by hop flavors and a lot of bitterness. Alcohol stated making its prsence known half way through. Had to pin down what style this should be,but it was excellent

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2006
22 oz. bomber. Clear copper with a frothy off white head, mostly diminishing with some lacing. Aroma of caramel, molasses, vanilla and berries. Sweet caramel malt flavor mostly, some plum, allspice with hoppy bitterness on the finish. Palate similar to a fountain cream soda--lively carbonation but not gassy. Nice enough, but I’d love it with a bigger hop character like you find in Stone arrogant bastard.

Nice amber pour with a good sized off-white head that laces well. Slightly acidic aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Very hoppy, bitter flavor with a good balance of some sweet caramel malts.

Arayaga2 (1869) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 lightly fruity malty aroma, and beautiful deep reddish honey head. This product is surprisingly smoothand only subtly sweet, with little alcohol bite or aftertaste. Very inoffensive. $9/22oz

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Draft at the DRE. Deep copper pour with 1-finger creamy head. Great appearance. Aroma of extremely piney hops, caramel malt, black and Bell pepper, mango. The flavor was very hoppy in a piney way, with a big tropical fruity taste backed up by a big malt bill. Very smooth palate with well hidden alcohol. Marvelous!
