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!

Bottle. Dark copper amber brown, tall sticky tan head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, little bit of orange. Syrupy body and taste, bit of alcohol presence. Really nice.

I poured it from the bottle into a chalice. It pours a somewhat cloudy copper color with a nice head and lacing. The aroma is hops and spice. The taste is hops, bitterness, spice, and booze. The mouth feel is fairly carbonated. This had a lot of flavor. As it warmed, the alcohol became more pronounced.

BierMeHoos (326) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On draft at Big Stick, Navy Yard, DC. In a snifter, appearance is a dark amber in color with one finger of off white foam. Aroma is hoppy and woody with some fruit notes. Taste is earthy with that grapefruit citrus pop. Palate is heavy and dense. Overall, quite the powerhouse, but that is why you go for the 9.7% ABV sometimes!

Barnacle_Ed (40) - Milpitas, California, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle pour. Golden amber and thin white head. Floral and pine nose. Uncompromising flavors of malt, caramel, and grapefruit. Bitter and oily finish. One I keep an eye open for...watch out for the high ABV sneaking up on you though!

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Orange/grapefruit peel pulp and peel aroma. Hazy amber with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and moderately strong grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Okay - pretty sweet and hoppy.

VinegarStroke (338) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle: Light haze, deep copper, light head and a good lace. Big hoppy lift. Loads of malt. Some caramel and citrus. Dry to off dry, not sour, bitter and almost finishes sweet. Very fruit. Loads of orange and mandarin. The mid palate is fresh but the finish is heavy. This beer could knock you out. A little over the top.
