COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When Phin and Matt sat down to collaborate on their new beer, they knew it had to be different if they were to call it extraordinary. "Let sprinkle it with fairy dust and wave our magic wands," said Phin. "No way," said Matt, "We’ve got to do better than that. This beer has to be better than any other in the galaxy." "Let’s do some market research." So the two strapped on their rocket pack packs and traveled to the intergalactic beer store. After sampling an array of beers from acrossed the galaxy, the duo hit on an idea. "I’ve got it" exclaimed Matt, "we’ll use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malt, and put a little more love in every batch." "Eureka!" shouted Phin. And thus became a beer so fresh and tasty the duo put their names on it. 37 IBU’s, 5.6% ABV

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: slight white head, golden color, clear, ok lacing. Aroma: caramel, heavy floral hops, light grapefruit. Palate: medium to light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, slightly sticky texture. Taste: sweet caramel with with plenty of floral hops joining in, light grapefruit notes, but primarily floral finish. Overall, pretty good, nothing amazing, like the floral, but maybe a bit strong.

Translucent golden hue with a meager sized white head akin to a lager. Wonderful malty aroma containing notes of caramel, butterscotch, biscuit, as well as some minor spruce hop. Light bodied and quite smooth. Tastes very much akin to its aroma, with emphasis placed on malt rather than hops. It’s nice drinking a pale ale that isn’t solely focused on hops.

tillmac62 (421) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a bit of amber. Normal head volume, outstanding lacing and normal retention. Very light nose of what might be Saaz hops. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Superbly carbonated with a nice balanced prickly effervescence throughout. Outstanding flavor profile. It is intense, complex and balanced. It begins with a Saaz and pine like hop flavor over a subtle biscuit and caramel malt sweetness. The middle is a slight bitterness that is in balance with the malt. The finish is a clean, slow, slightly dry, fade of the aforementioned hop flavors. This is a great lawnmower beer for those that enjoy a hop flavored ale.

Cool_Bond (2003) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Fruity, malty and slightly bitter taste and aroma. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth a weak moment. Okay beer but not extraordinary at all. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. Pine and resin aroma. Nice malty backbone with some slight tart yoghurty flavours. A fine, but not really extraordinary, ale.
