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

Mostly clear amber pour with a medium off white head. Floral hop aroma with malt notes also. Resinous hop aroma. Lots of old lady perfume from the hops on the palate. Sweet, thinnish mouthfeel. Not a lot of complexity, mild hop presence except for the perfume...kinda making me ill...unimpressive finish.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Light amber-orange. Smelled like alcohol and oranges. Rather sweet (sugar water and light caramel) malt base. Delicate notes of fruit (pear and apricots). Gentle, flowery bitterness added a nice contrast. Pleasant beer.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly malty (toasted grain). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Extraordinary? Nope. Decent for the style, though.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2005
No head, clear golden. Malty, sweet aroma. Taste is bitter grains, slightly buttery toasted malts. Finish is very clean, just a slight hint of bitter grains. Needs more hops IMHO.

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2005
12 oz bottle. Deep gold, slight haze. Slight wispy white head. Some pine, citrus and green tea in the nose. Nice slightly bitter taste with just the right amount of hops. Excellent balance. Slightly dry finish. Damn good beer!!!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Crystal clear golden brown body beneath a dense foamy white head. Grapefuit and lemon highlight the aroma. Starts crisp, with some grapefruit and orange zest flavors. Very slight toffee like malts sit in the background. Another solid southern tier beer.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a transparent copper color with almost no head. Nose is hoppy citrus and pine with a dash of malt sweetness. Mouthfeel as well as body definitely on the light, thin side. Flavor is very nice with hop tartness (I swear I taste blackberry in there, but may be over-enthusiastic) followed by a smoothing-out sweetness that displays the tremednous balance of this pale ale. Really quite enjoyable, just wish it were a more robust body.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2005
Fresh hops, floral nose - bright hop res. Gold color, foamy lathery head. Soft malt body with a hint of sweet grapefruit. Fairly broad floral hoppy taste wtihout a biting bitter. Medium body. The balance is the key to this beer. Lots of hop character in a very smooth overall experience.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2005
Deep golden orange color. Small head on top that leaves some laces on the glass. Very intense orange and lavender nose. Floral, sage taste. Medium lasting - a bit thin bodied.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Hazy light amber color with a beige head. Nice citrus/grapefruit hop aroma. Pretty malty and full bodied for a pale ale. Mild hops with some bitterness in the finish.
