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, "Weíve got to do better than that. This beer has to be better than any other in the galaxy." "Letís 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. "Iíve got it" exclaimed Matt, "weíll 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 IBUís, 5.6% ABV

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2006
Tap at the Waterfront Ale House. Slightly hazy beer with a lacy white head. Sweet orangey hop aroma, some grapefruit and a touch of spiciness in back as well. Loads of fresh hop flavour, orange/grapefruit with a nice pale malt backbone. A touch of breadiness, especially in the finish. Not groundbreaking, but a solid APA.

Bottle (thanks argo0). Copper colored (on the lighter side of copper), medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, slight bread. Flavor is less hoppy, dry, slight grass in aftertaste. Little thin in body, but still a very good beer.

NaturalIce (148) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Flowery aroma, great pour.. this beer has an amazing golden glow to it and nice frothy head. Taste and palate of your average pale ale, however.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Via secret santa Summer 2006. The beer pours to a clean looking golden body with a foamy white head. The aroma is crisp with floral hops and some herbs and orange rind. The flavor is quite different. Weedy and grassy hops with some caramel white bread and flowers. Perhaps some orange rind. The palate is medium bodied with a nice texture. Good carbonation.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Deep golden orange, thin white head. Flowery, herbal hop scent. Has a thin watery body and an herbal hop character with a light lemony touch. Slight spicyness and a grassy earthyness. Simple.

Lowe1983 (1367) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Pours a cloudy, light amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with caramel and a hint of sweet malts. Flavor starts off with the floral and pine hops that give way to the sweet malts. Finishes bitter with citrus hops. Another delicious brew from Southern Tier.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2006
It poured a pale gold with a small, white head. It was light, lightly flavored and lightly hopped, but well balanced with a slight hop finish. Itís smooth, goes down quickly. A hot day thirst quencher, make sure itís cold. I didnít know whether to describe it as bland or mild, Iíll settle for the title description: pale.
