COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the worlds would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patricks 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!

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle (sneak release) poured amber in color with a tiny off white head. Aroma was caramel and alcohol with a small amount of citrus hop coming though. Taste was bitter yet faded quickly to a ton of malt and alcohol. Hopefully this will get better with some age, but right now its way out of balance even for a strong ale.

Headbanger (3986) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2007
22oz bomber-aroma of hops and citrus on a medium amber body with a nice off white head. Taste of hops, citrus, and a nice hop ending. A darn good beer.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Nice amber pour with a good sized off-white head that laces well. Slightly acidic aroma of citrus, pine and grass. Very hoppy, bitter flavor with a good balance of some sweet caramel malts.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 Interesting beer. Pours clear mahogany with a decent, but short-lived head. Floral, hoppy aroma with pine and nuts. Leads you to believe this will be more on the Imperial Red side. Its not. Lots of malt and caramel, with some woodiness. The hops are there, but very tempered, almost run over by the malt. In the end, this is still pretty good.

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bomber from Pacific Liquor. Pretty tasty, though nothing really unique or stellar. Reminded me of an Arrogant Bastard, just not as fresh. The alcohol is well tucked away with a noticeable malt profile that finishes with a clean hop burst. Pretty standard fare, but not bad at all.

hayduke (5171) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 15, 2007
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a deep ruby red with a nice fluffy white head that left good lacing. Nose of pine hops and fruits. Smooth full bodied mouthfeel. Flavor of hops, caramel, fruit, and there was a nice bitter finish. Alcohol is present, but is not obtrusive. Good brew.

troopie (2313) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle . Poured deep brown red with a large white head. Much lacing. Hoppy, piney aroma. Full mouthed flavour with much hoppiness, slight malt with no taste of alcohol. This is amazingly smooth. Finish lasts forever, is felt all throughout the mouth.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Pours a dark brownish color with some red hints to it. A slight head is there upon the pour. Smell is slightly hoppy. The taste is very bitter. Surprisingly with the amount of bitterness it goes down fairly smoothly. Considering its ABV and bitterness this is a pretty decent beer.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2007
2007 Bottle: Pours a beautiful crystal ruby red with a big 2-3 finger white fluffy head. Quite a pretty beer to look at in my goblet. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops with just a little malt underneath. Flavor is malty and moderately bitter but has a big hop flavor at the end and some lingering bitterness. Small amount of fruit esters come through. Slight alcohol warmth. This seems much more hoppy than last years and like a completely different beer than i remember. I think this is really an Imperial IPA.
