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!

circinus (241) - SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle 355ml, from Systembolaget. Clear copper with a white head. Grassy, citrus, pine, grapefruit, some raisin, caramel. More general fruit characteristics and maltiness when it warms up. Medium body, round, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Some warmness, a bit of alcohol in the nose, but not in the mouth. Nice, would buy again.

bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Aroma is very light citrus, resin, and caramelly toffee notes. The flavor is citrus up front, then the toffee malt kicks in followed by a slight caramel note. The abv is hidden very well. Be careful with this beer!! It’s very tasty and very potent.

dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Pours a medium brown, with a beige head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, and some grapefruit. Flavor is fruity, malty, and mildly sweet. Finishes a little astringent, and hoppy, but not bad. Overall very smooth and drinkable.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Deep mahogany brown. Nose is hot booze, toffee, and tobacco. Flavor follows, nice round palate, and bitter hop finish. A bit on the sweet side to be a real but still a great affordable brew. -Fish!

Melker (232) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2013
The first few sips were delicious. American barley wine-ish with lots of caramel and hoppy flavours like citrus fruits and pine. Way too sweet aftertaste and the bitterness felt kinda chemical but as the beer got warmer the chemical flavour dissapeared and the sweetness calmed down. At the right temperature it’s almost too easy to drink.

Copper color when poured. Has a malty caramel flavor. Nice hops flavor and isn’t very bitter Goes down smooth for the higher alcohol content.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours deep orange with an ample off-white head. Citrusy floral hop aromas with notes of caramel. Excellent balance of hoppy brightness and malty goodness with a noticeable but not overwhelming alcohol finish. I really enjoy this one. I can’t fully define why, but I won’t overanalyze it.
