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

Aurelius (4175) - 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.

Terminus (3241) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 12, 2005
bottle-again, thanks to hopdog for this one. pous bright orange with a huge soapy off-white head . Unfortunately, this says 1 of 2 things-oxidization or sometype of infection/yeast problem. highly citric aroma of oranges and pineapple-tropical fruits. flavors are heavy on the citrus-orange/tangerine. fairly one dimensional hop kick here, but kinda cool, considering the style of beer here. pretty straight forward citric pale here.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Aroma has a little bit of grapefruit, a lot of orange. Taste is pretty well balanced, lots of hops and bitterness, grapefruit, quite nice. Pours with a decent rocky head and a little lacing.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2005
12 oz bottle - Pours bright amber with a nice white head that stays well and laces pretty good as well. Aroma is of grapefruit and floral hops. Flavor is very hoppy as well. Notes of grapefruit and a touch of caramel malt beneath. Dominated pretty much by the hops though. Body is medium and this has a nice mouthfeel to it. It is just a touch unbalanced towards the hop side but I like hops so this was enjoyable for me.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2005
Strong, spicy, orange-citrus, resiny hop aroma almost seems like it has ginger and cinnamon notes to it. Clear pale copper coloured body is topped by a huge, fine-bubbled, white head that lasts forever and coats the sides of the glass. Grapefruit and lemon herbal hop flavours are strong with very assertive bitterness and extreamely dry malt character. Medium-light body with pointy, sharp, prickly carbonation that is just a bit too aggressive. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (trade, May-05). Thanks, jah_noth!

Pailhead (4809) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of JCW. Aroma has citrus hops but also a mustiness that is a little unpleasant. Pours a transparent orange with an insignificant white head. Watery orange up front with a citrus hop finish that seems a little off. Hints of caramel hide in the background. Have had better from this brewery.
