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!

caramel maple and slightly roasty maltinessand citrusy hops balanced along with a pear type aroma..nice clear dark red/bronze brown color pure white head dissipates to quarter inch ring..tastes bitter but with a strong maltiness much like an east coast ipa..strong citrus and piney hops along with the malty flavors mentioned in the aroma,more of a smoky roasty flavor than smell however..very easily drinkable and it was a pretty hot day so it warmed fast..maltiness more pronounced as it warms..overall excellent ipa for any season and as always extra points for costing under 10 bucks for a 6 pack

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2007
Bottle. Classic hoppy aroma with hints of lime and exotic fruit from a deep amber, clear beer with lasting, fluffy tan head, The flavor is intensely bitter with a good balance between hops and caramel malt. Long aftertaste with a in- your-face alcohol punch. Very nice beer, but I cannot understand why it is not classified as a Double IPA.

Crystal clear light amber pour. Thick white head and lots of lacing. Heavy hop aroma. Citrus and pine comes through the most. Alcohol comes through as well. Don't pick up much malt in aroma. Pretty thick mouthfeel. Flavor is very balanced. Still very bitter but not very dry. Caramel sweetness shines a little bit more than in aroma. Still some alcohol, but not bad for 9+%. Very good beer. ---Rated via iPhone
