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!

Clear copper with a big head. Aroma spicy and citrusy, with an earthy note. Taste full and bitter, but with a strong orange liquor note. Very rich, Second sip is much sweeter. However, it is surprisingly drinkable, and the palate, while sweet, is not cloying. Very interesting beer.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 1, 2014
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a head of foamy dark white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a spiderweb lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was mild malt and mild hop. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of vinous sweet crisp && clean caramel and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

dlihcsnatas (328) - Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Amber brew that smells of alcohol and hops. Taste was slight sweetness but held to a minimum by the citrus/pine hops that lingered in the aftertaste. there was a small alcohol burn but nothing that took away from the great taste this beer offers. Glad I went for the six pack rather than the single on this one because it is very good and with the ABV will bet I am feeling fine after the last one.

bbbeer (592) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Orange with medium white head. Aroma piney and grassy hops with just a bit of malt. Medium full body. Not too much alcohol. Flavor is like aroma, piney hops, just a bit of sweetness and citrus. Pretty drinkable for this ABV. Solid.

The Undercover Investigation Shut-Down pours a mostly cloudy rusty amber color with a thick beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is dark fruit, bread and floral. The flavor is floral, dark fruit and bread. Overall this is a nice brew.
