Default Pitching on yeast that fermented too hot in previous batch

I just dumped a batch of Jamil's Evil Twin because I fermented too hot and it tastes like rubber and rubbing alcohol. I'm brewing an IPA tomorrow, however, and was wondering if I could pitch on the yeast that had previously been fermented too hot. What do you guys think? Stressed yeast, so not a good idea? Not a problem?

That yeast made a dumpable batch, why on earth would you repurchase? Spend $6 and don't dump another!
