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

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 (1351) - 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. It’s smooth, goes down quickly. A hot day thirst quencher, make sure it’s cold. I didn’t know whether to describe it as bland or mild, I’ll settle for the title description: pale.

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Orange-brown-amber color, small creamy head, lace. Bready, malty aroma with notes of orange peel. Good flowery-hoppy-citric flavor, aftertaste has grapefruit. Long bitter aftertaste. Refreshing.

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Golden color out of the bottle with an egg shell head. The nose was of grassy hop pellets. This beer has lots of the bitter grass flavors that I do not really like (see GLBC Burning River). Apple, apricot, alcohol and that raw grass finish. Flavorful beer, but not the flavors I like.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 1, 2006
Good beer, nice floral hop aroma and hazed amber color. Taste is mellow and soft for an APA. Sessionable.

jimhilt (2413) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy nose. Starts as hoppy/some malt but midway the hops kick in to the finish still a drinkable pale. $1.45 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 14, 2006
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of white colored foamy with a frothy top mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a hazy softly carbonated light orange brown colored body. The aroma was hoppy and malty with a slight citrus note. The mouth feel was tingly and mild from start to finish. It also had a nice mild malt hop flavor to it that was crisp and clean. A very quaff-able brew.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Pours a murky golden orange color. Aromas of citrus hops, caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and hoppy with a touch of pepper/grapefruit with sweet malt.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 June 10, 2006; 12 oz. bottle

Straw color, small head. Signature citrusy ST aroma, but there’s something sour in there as well?

Watery (on the finish) and uninspired, this brew lacks the character of this brewery’s excellent flagship IPA. Unfortunately, can’t say there’s anything "extraordinary" about this one.

Re-rate on April 19, 2007: Was a bit hard on this one the first time around -- I have to remember to rate to the style to some extent!
