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!

The nose isn’t much. The appearance is of a brown/mahogany, Little head retention but at 9.75? Who would have thought that important? The taste is a very robust malt matrix combined with just the right Hops. Both the profile and at 66.6 ibu’s It has hop attack, iT’s just not the star here. That Title will be given to It’s brewers. Well Done. Didn’t want an IPA nor a Stout. This is a welcome addition to a hard to fill niche.

From the 12 fl. oz bottle. Love that copper-amber pour with the long lasting off-white head. It looks like others in its class but it is attractive. The aroma shouts out hops and butterscotch and maybe whispers a little pear. Medium to full body. The taste begins with a nice toasted malt character and then it erupts into an earthy moderate hop bitterness with a lingering finish.

Poured into pint glass from bottle: Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, pine, earthy. Taste is a bit sweet but balanced with lots of piney hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not as overly sweet as I was expecting. A very nice beer.

Citrus, fresh hop, and light earthy herbal notes. Bubbly amber body and off white thick foamy head. Fresh hop bitterness, dry citrus zest, and grassy notes I n the taste. Crisp and dry on the palate.

hoju777 (136) - FRANCE - APR 15, 2014
6 pack from Ralphs. Smells ok. Copperish color. Tastes ok. Not really bitter. Thick and smooth and creamy and kind of icky. Real think and smooth so it covers almost all the alcohol. It’s ok. It would be a really good Belgium beer.

r464 (1786) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2014
Deep malty flavor with dark fruit (raisin, fig) and a light hoppiness that comes through at the end. Strong and full.

Mep3222 (315) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 15, 2014
Aroma of sweet hoppy malt. Taste is on the sweet side, almost a candy sugar ness to it. Has a barley wine feel to it. Some bitter hops help balance but still sweet with a sweet finish. Alcohol is masked but is still noticeably strong. Almost has a bit of a whisky aroma and flavor as well. Adds nicely to it. Very complex and nice flavors. Just not something I could drink too much of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
