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!

Copper colored pour with a tall khaki head. Nice bright, citrus hop aroma. Grapefruit, pine, and orange. Some sweet caramel, a touch of brown sugar, and light pineapple. The flavor is fruity and sweet. Pineapple, grapefruit, and oranges. Light pine bitterness, sweet caramel, and some brown sugar. Nice.

Tyvärr lite för hög halt av procenten 9,9 eftersmaken var härlig på denna söta öl skummet var stabilt som sakta sjönk ihop

sudomorph (490) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Pours a clear caramel with a one finger, white head that laces well and has nice legs. Aroma has big juicy notes of pine, citrus, resin, tropical fruits, carmel, and a touch of alcohol. Really nice. Taste is bitter but not overly. Sweet caramel, orange citrus, pine, resin, and a bit of alcohol and dark fruit on the finish. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Slightly syrupy texture with a dry finish. Overall a really nice strong. Juicy hop flavours mixed with caramel, alcohol, and a touch of dark fruits.

Poured from bottle to tulip a clear copper with thin off white head and nice lacing. Aroma was malts, citrus, floral and a bit of caramel. Mouthfeel was creamy. Taste was a real nice balance of malt and citrus hoppyness. Some caramel and bitter in the finish. Real nice, I enjoyed this one.

AndyW68 (1022) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 21, 2014
C Lear copper pour with thick clingy white head. Aroma is citrus and floral. Taste follows nose, but appears watered down and a little funky. Very good, but not the best.

b3shine (5133) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells bittersweet with notes of bitter hops and malt. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel that’s fairly light for the style. Enjoyable, and drinks easier than its abv.
