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

On the appearance - amber colour, slightly hazy and minimal head which drops rapidly. Sweet fruity and floral aroma. Tastes sweet malty, maybe a little bit bready. Light bitterness at the finish, but malty sweetness lasts longer. Lively carbonation. Not sure if it’s extraordinary.

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a white head, average retention.
Aroma: Mild caramel malts with sweet orange and grassy aromas.
Taste: Mild intro with light caramel flavors along with grassy hops with just a hint of citrus by the finish.
Palate: Light bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Easy drinking pale ale, very mild. This is something I would use to introduce someone to hoppier beers.

Davhgbrew (887) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Aroma of hops. Tastes of a moderately hopped IPA. floral, citrus, w/ a sweetness to the middle..blueberry? Not extraordinary, but very good.

WooPigBrewey (46) - North Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Lighter, crisp, easy-drinking APA with a clean taste of citrusy hop notes, well-balanced with the malts.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clear, bright amber with medium off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma heavy on sweet grainy malt with a bit of earthy hops. Taste of sweet grainy malt, earthy floral hops, orange and light fruit. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beergeek23322 (2025) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2013
April 2010. From bottle. Orange/amber color with a white head. Good balance, but just doesn’t stand out from the crowd as I’ve come to expect from this brewer.

Reynolds314 (2089) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Absolutely nothing extraordinary about this. Im assuming the title is ironic because I cant think of a beer less extraordinary then this overly malty bland APA. Very little hops and just a bready grassy maltyness and lightly sweet.

Beerowulf (73) - , Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle into shaker. Aroma minimal. Watery with more malt than hop taste. Maybe a hint of orange peel. An ordinary pale ale

Just another malty and bitter ipa with no hop flavors, why aren’t these all extinct yet?

Pours clear gold/copper. Big soapy head that dissipates like soda. Aroma is weak but pleasant and citrusy sweet. Taste is what stands out here with flavors of earth, grass, pine, and caramel candy. Everything about this is subtle. Medium body. No real hop bite. Definitely easy to drink and probably even tasteful to your Budweiser drinking buddies.
