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

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.

(Draught) Sampled at the Central New York Brewfest on February 4, 2006. Headless with an amber body. Full-on piney notes and flavour. Mildly bitter Phin-ish. Terribly unbalanced and unidimensional.

In the bottle. Thanks to Springslicker for the beer! Medium amber/copper with an off white head. Aroma is sublime with a nice crisp hop scent. A little bit toasted as well. Yummy! A very balanced blend of medium palate bitterness and maltiness. Slightly fruity and full of gypsum. This is a well-made beer.

There is a light grapefruit and citrusy aroma. The color is amber and the head is small, white, and rapidly diminishing. No lacing is present. The taste is dry and hoppy.

Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with an average creamy white had that was lasting. Good complex hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body. Moderate hoppy flavor with a medium bitter finish. Very drinkable brew.
