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!

On tap at JL Beers, Grand Forks. Deep amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is malty caramel and citrus zest, a little bready. Taste is nicely balanced - sweet bready and caramel maltiness, bright citrus hops with a nice bitterness.

furthur (656) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Growler, deep amber, white head faded, some lace. Aroma is malty and juicy with a hint of spruce. Taste is malty, some juicy tropical fruit, and a lightly hoppy bitter finish. This palate is rich, yet light, somehow, with moderate carbonation.

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I normally don't love super bitter beers, but this is an exception. Very smooth and velvety, with lots of malty sweetness for balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shot (339) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours reddish gold with a huge white sticky head. Aromas of sweet malt, pine and nuts. Aromas of pine, nuttiness, cut grass, sweet toffee malt, fig, coffee and resiny herbal tones. Wow! Slight oily mouthfeel, but otherwise deceptively light on the palate. Beautiful!

TEJA (1928) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2015
Big beighe head. Clear and solid amber color. Big and fresh hop aroma that really atacks you when opening the bottle. Big hop taste but with a finetunes maltiness. No caramell maltiness makes it fresh. Balanced bitterness and fine body.

willisread (1580) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear copper with a small head that lingers for a bit then dissipates. Aromas of citrus, pine, peach and wood. Taste is more of the same with good bitterness coming through. Lots of sweetness on the palate, but finishes bitter. Not my favorite style, but solid.

Pours a medium amber with strong citrus fruit on the nose. Strong initial bitter bite that intensifies on the back end with a very strong alcohol presence. I can taste some sweet malt, citrus & maybe a little syrup along with the bittering & flavoring hops. Intense & very well done.
