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

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.

Chucks66 (85) - Beachwood, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Pours with a short head and a golden color. Tastes like and english mild but has good hop flavor and citrus notes. Would consider it a session beer as it is easy drinking

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Clear amber color with a medium light beige head and thin patches of lacing. Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced but the flavor is a little weak. Mild hops, sweet malt and some tropical fruit flavors are there but are subdued. The finish is clean and sweet, making this beer really easy to drink from start to finish. Extraordinary? No. Above average? Yes.

jcr (2187) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Strong aroma of citrus, mainly orange indicating lots of hops, but there are also hints of sweet, bready malts. The taste seemed to lean more toward the malts than the hops. Perhaps this particular bottle had some age to it. Nonetheless, there was a slight bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body. Enjoyable enough, but not great by any means.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Pale amber, bad label. One-dimensional and strong western hop aroma. Well-malted, medium sweetness, prominent hopping. Hop aftertaste hangs around for a while, but doesn’t linger too long. Just another APA.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Bottle from Springslicker. Pours a lightly opaque amber color. Scant white head forms, fades and leaves decent lacing behind. Aroma is moderately grapefruity and floral, perhaps the slightest malt nose. Lighter bodied, decent carbonation, tends to feel a bit watery on the palate. Decent amount of hops here, not overwhelming with bitterness but lacking malt body. Pleasant floral and light citrus flavors. Decent.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Heavily hopped nose (orange/pineapple) is balanced nicely with malty notes of fresh bread. Heavy mouthfeel is dominated with caramel and bready malts. Nice, long finish is perfectly bitter. Although this is a good session beer, it is refreshing to know that it is NOT the best beer in the galaxy.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Thin reddish golden color with minimal head. Aroma is weak-maybe orange, pineapple and malt, but not strong. Flavor is much better. Malt with mild citrus/pineapple. Subtle, but nice, although it comes off as watery up front. Finishes with a mild spicy hops flavoring. Slippery mouthfeel.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Yum! This is a nicely balanced session ale, in my book. Mild malts, sweet, citrus, orange peel hops and a juicy finish that’s mellow and long. Orange clear body, short head, good lacing. Nice to finally find this in Ohio.
