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

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with short lived, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy, piney hops and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal, piney hops dominate the flavor while pale malt provide some balance. Finish is long and dry. OK brew.

Salmoniform (476) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Light amber straw-ish hue with fizzy white head that lingered. Aroma is malt, melon, sulphur, lime. Mouthfeel is decent with medium light body and good carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet initially with a bitter following and slightly astringent finish. Overall this is a decent brew but pretty singularly dimensional.

berkshirejohn (4400) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo. Amber with a thin white head; malty aroma with perhaps a touch of orange zest; floral taste with a caramel body; and a pleasantly bitter finish. OK, but nothing more.

Per tractar-se d’una APA és poc aromàtica i maltosa, fàcil de beure i refrescant. Por tratarse de una APA es poco aromática y maltosa, fácil de beber y refrescante.

bartlebier (1540) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
(US 2012 backlogged in abstinentia) 12oz bottle from ABC Wine&Spirits, Tallahassee, FL 24/09/2012, on the road of libation to Gulf Shores. Does its job as a floral, hibiscus tea APA with a nice caramalt back. Slightly metallic edge. Simple, quenching, with subtle character.

gegwilson (971) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle in Pivni. Pours hazy golden with a white head. his was a bit of a disappointing experience. There are some good caramel and citrus notes, but the flavours aren’t particularly strong. Nice enough, but far from extraordinary.

Mep3222 (421) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Full flavored and malty. Do not get much hop aroma, mostly malt and a little lagerish stinky ness. Nothing special but nothing is bad about it either. Mostly a malty ale with a bit of a bitter hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
