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

rollinsr (384) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JAN 6, 2014
Pours a light and slightly hazy amber. Aroma is grapefruit and orange citrus hops. Flavor brings out much of the citrus hop character with not a whole lot of the bitterness. The malts are well-balanced offering up an ale that has character on both the hop and malt fronts.

ansermadide (1524) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Golden, somewhat thin in appearance, the nose is light and citrusy, but with some grain and some yeast. In the mouth it’s just a little thick on the tongue, but light everywhere else. Citrus hops finish this off, ending easy and somewhat noble.

DocJitsu (1002) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a golden color with a white head. Faint citrus and toasty malt nose. Competing wet and powdery texture with some light carbonation scrubbing. Flavor is more powerful than the nose. Sweet orange-lemon flavor.

rondphoto (2099) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Clear copper amber with a thick head that slowly reduces to a head cover, hanging bands of lace. Taste is a well-produced balance between caramel malt and light bittering. There’s not much else present, but when those essential attributes are done well, there doesn’t have to be. This is a brew that demands sessioning. Recommended.
