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

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.

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.

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!

I have to agree with the previous rater. Negative one points for the name and negative two points for quite possibly the gayest label I have ever seen on a beer bottle. Otherwise it was a middle of the road pale ale. some caramel and some hops.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2006 Courtesy of Shadey <P> First of all I am automatically deducting one point for the commerical deScription: "they knew it had to be different if they were to call it extraordinary." so to make it different they: "use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malt, and put a little more love in every batch," yeah so what craft brewer doesn’t claim to use the finest and "more love?" That is like tasting the "cold" in a Coors. Sad. Anyway back to the beer. Wow it smells so different..I mean it has caramel malt and some hops like most other pale ales, but I was told it was difefrent so I FEEL like it smells different. Well here is something different...most APA’s have some semblance of a head and this one doesn’t...at all. Just a light orange/yellow color and a wisp of white film on top. Fore is pretty nice..lots of a caramel malt with a little tinge of citrus kissed hops toward the back end. It’s fairly tasty, but not at all different.

Bottle. Small white head that quickly dissipated, poor lacing, carbonated, hazy, and a light orange hue. Aroma was malty, caramel and hoppy. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, hoppy, and thin. Tingly, thin mouthfeel. Light-medium body.
