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!

jcwattsrugger (11317) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2010 22oz bottle -pours a foamy light tan head and deep amber color. Aroma is northwest hops-citrus/resiny/pine, syrup, medium malt. Taste is tingly on the tongue, northwest hops-citrus/resiny/pine, syrup, medium malt, pick up of alcohol at the end. Good effervescence, could be an American Strong Ale, but best I2PA I think I’ve had. 100430-just had this in the 12oz pkg, not as impressive as 2+ yrs ago, but still pretty tasty. Leaving the score alone, just adding this comment.

daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2009
Amber pour, off white head. Caramel malt, spicy hops, and citrus make up the nose. Flavor is an odd malt taste with some muted hops. Something doesn’t sit right with this beer. It is almost really good then almost not so good. Enigma.
