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!

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2007 Rating #1 Bottle (6 3 5 2 12). A brown-orange color with a foamy off-white head. A toasted malty sweet bread flavor. Wood, medicinal, and pine flavors that challenge but dont quite create enough joy. Rating #2 Bottle (6 3 7 3 16). A light malt and spice aroma that was very understated (almost like tea). The flavor comes through well despite the missing aroma. A slightly sweet malty and caramel base with with a little bite. A smooth finish with a pleasant malty aftertaste.

Bottle. Brown-copper with a small white head. Citrusy grapefruit aroma, sweet resin, creamy bread malt and some lemon. Sugary malt flavour and the hops are certainly in full force as well as a whack of alcohol. Caramel flavour is also apparent. Overall quite big and drinkable but best kept to small doses.

The pour reveals a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Good aroma of woody, resinous hops with something sweet. The flavor has an interesting combo of sweet and bitter with its woody, resinous hops and caramel sweetness. The body is light to medium with a chewy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I like that the alcohol is not present in the flavor.

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.

xmarcnolanx (937) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Pours copper with a small head. Aroma is of fruity hops and sweet malt. Taste is all hops with a lot of sweetness to it. It is a little strange, but has a nice bitter finish. Overall, not the best effort.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottled. Beer is clear, light brown with a small, white, frothy, quickly and mostly diminishing head.<P>The aroma is malty with light/moderate notes of toasted grain, cookie and caramel; Hoppy with moderate/heavy resin/pine, moderate herbal grapefruit zest; Light yeast note of basement; Light miscellaneous notes of alcohol and vanilla.<P>The flavor is moderately bitter, moderately sweet, lightly acidic with a long, warm, lightly/moderately bitter, moderately sweet finish.<P>The body is medium/full, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is lively.<P>Quite hoppy, but adequately balanced with the rich desserty malt. Not particularly engaging, though.

A good beer that is dangerously drinkable as it hides its high abv very well. Mild overall. Malt flavor and malt aroma with moderate hops. Well balanced, but the flavors are subtle. Brown in color.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Clear deep amber/copper pour with a 2 finger khaki head in a new Sam Adams glass. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and malt with a little grapefruit. Flavor is tilted toward the malty end with plenty of caramel, toffee and milk chocolate. Hops apparent but not nearly as aggressive as anticipated. Nice rich mouthfeel and a slightly peppery finish where the alcohol joins the party. Id echo the comments from mj - this brew is quite close to their Censored Rich Copper Ale. Not a bad beer and one I would happily drink again but not one that I would go out and look for.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2007
sampled this twice both times there was cheese pizza and let me say they are a perfect match. Hints of roasted malts, crystal, good american hops. Pours copper/amber. Good flavor, the alcohol is hidden, tastes like a really really good ESB, great crystal malt flavor with slight hints of roasted barley, giving a slight nutty taste, a good dose of hops to balance out that 9.9%. Great beer.
