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!

Appearance is deep amber with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is all hop... More earthy, herbal, and citrus. Taste is grassy, earthy, onion, with slight bit of pine. Mouthfeel is fairly high. Finish is a soft hop bitterness following by intense alcohol warmth. As the beer warms the alcohol finish becomes very noticeable and leaves a stinging sensation

bergstaden (2452) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2016
Dark golden with a white head - Fruity hop aroma - Malt body to support a hop profile that has fruity flavours and bitterness - The malt and fruityness goes into the finish - This was good

danielst (356) - AUSTRIA - SEP 24, 2016
On tap: Dark orange. Sweet candy malt aroma, a lightly nutty and toasty malt flavor with a light citric note. Sweet and barley wine-y but not cloying at all.

wolffish (552) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
Rien n’est en retenue dans celle-ci mais c’est tout de même très bon. L’alcool est trop présent à mon goût mais l’amertume est parfaite pour le style. C’était très résineux et très peu effervescent.

SHIG (4675) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Draft: Poured a copper with a white colored head. Aroma was metallic and hops. Taste is light hops with a huge malt backbone.

To my taste, not the kind of IPA I typically enjoy - it's more about the bitterness than the hoppiness in this one. Glad I tried it, but not one I'd go for again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kingaugusta (241) - Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Pours murky gold with a quick white head. Nose is west coast hops with apple and a little booze. Malts play a bigger role in the flavor than the hops and are surprisingly dry and bready. Alcohol is well hidden. Definitely rides the line with double IPAs and is quite tasty.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Fresh aroma of malt and light hops. Clear dark amber color, frothy two-finger tan head that stays, bubbly lace cobwebs. Taste is strong malt with some caramel that adds light carbonation and hops on the swallow, then moves easily to a long sweet and bitter finish that shows a little unsweetened tea. Big, but not heavy, but awfully strong for general drinking. I could buy it again.
