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

kramer (5763) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Eyedrinkale. Pours a hazy orangish copper under a small white head composed of very fine bubbles. Nice perfumy hop aroma with a light citrus fruitiness of tangerines and lime zest. Flavor is fruity and crisp, so much citrus flavor you’d swear they added oranges to this. Very well balanced and thirst quenching. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with very fine carbonation yielding a creamy mouthfeel. A pretty nice Pale Ale. Not overly aggressive or in your face, but a nice session drinker.

Pours a golden blonde with a clear bubbly body that leaves a 1in off-white head. The aroma is strong hops, lemon, honey, and a chalky sweet tarts feel. The taste is balanced, starts floural hoppy, with a slight herbal tea sweetness. There is a lemon honey presence that has a natural "honeycomb" taste. The floural hop presence is great, very different and the finishes is smooth with a soft creamy feel on the throat.

Kevin (2191) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Thanks to shadey for this one. Hazed cloudy orange hued yellow body with an off white head that started life puffy but shrank to a skin leaving a sticky film of lace on the sides. Lemon citrus nose. With orange cream soda and ginger. Very dry mouth feel that taste of bitter papery unsweet tea. Lingering citrus finish, touch of orange peel and lemon. Ap-4 ar-7 tas-5 pal-3 ov-12

Clear copper w/ frothy white foam. Fresh, spicy hop aroma w/ notes of ginger & cinnamon. Medium, resiny feel. Flavour is both moderately hoppy & moderately malty. Finish is dry & mildly acidic.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Bottle, thanks to eyedrinkale for the bonus. Bready aroma with a nice touch of fresh pine and light orange citrus and some mineral notes. Bright orange in color with a thin head. Caramel malt flavor with a nice amount of sweetness and some citrusy hop flavors. Light body with a nicee and creamy texture. A nice pale ale.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Nice orange with copper tints. Thin white head and tinny carbonation. Creamy soft malt, light citrus hops. Some citrus caramel sweetness, also on the nose. The flavor is semi-sweet orangish caramel malt (interesting). The “big” hops are lacking but there is a nice orange citrus hop bitterness and a sweet (malt) bitter finish. This is an overall sweet IPA. A bit too much for me but still good. Creamy mouth feel and medium body. Odd really. I could have a glass of this but could not treat it as a session beer.

Interesting hop note, it didn’t smell like it tasted. Very poor head and slightly off-tasting hop characteristic. Not bad, but nothing extraordinary!
