Notes/Commercial Description:
Imagine a comic book. The kind with superheroes and punching and stuff. Now imagine that most of those superheroes are kind of total jerks. Add in a lot of profanity. No, more profanity than that. Ok, now throw in felonious owls, spectral bovines, gorilla arms, lots of bears, unplanned pregnancy, and 19th century boxer John L. Sullivan. And then a little more profanity. And be sure to include almost nothing about theology or space exploration.

Now imagine—and this is key—being able to drink all that. And then imagine it's called Beer Hates Astronauts, because that's what we're calling it. And we're calling it that because it's the beer version of God Hates Astronauts, which is the actual comic I completely failed to properly evoke above.

This is just the latest step in creator Ryan Browne's attempt to dominate the world by means of one of the most unsummarizable comics in existence. Having recently Kickstarted the deluxe hardcover edition of God Hates Astronauts with massive success, he has joined forces with Half Acre for a groundbreaking venture in distributing comics in hoppy liquid form.

Beer Hates Astronauts will be set free from its containment unit here at the brewery on Friday, August 30. It is a 7% ABV India Pale Ale brewed with Vienna malt and Citra hops.

Had this stupendously good beer at the Half Acre Tap Room. Pours a beautiful golden orange. Strong scent of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is similar but much more intense. Body is medium and after a day of golf and mowing the lawn this beer went down oh so smoothly. Just wish I could take some home with me.

June 2014 release on tap at Half-Acre.

A: Cloudy apricot in color with less than a finger of foamy white head that settles into a light cap, leaving a light lacing around the crown of the glass.

S: Textbook citra hop character upfront: chivey and citrusy, but not overwhelmingly fruity or perfumy. Some pine, some sweet malt and alcohol.

T: Some grass, some citrus rind, but mostly I'm getting that chive taste that just doesn't sit well with me.

M: Light to medium body with sufficient carbonation. I can see this being someone's favorite hot day beer.

O: Folks are raving over this beer, but it's just okay to me... nothing special, and definitely not the shining citra showcase it's been made out to be.
