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

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Crystal clear golden brown body beneath a dense foamy white head. Grapefuit and lemon highlight the aroma. Starts crisp, with some grapefruit and orange zest flavors. Very slight toffee like malts sit in the background. Another solid southern tier beer.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a transparent copper color with almost no head. Nose is hoppy citrus and pine with a dash of malt sweetness. Mouthfeel as well as body definitely on the light, thin side. Flavor is very nice with hop tartness (I swear I taste blackberry in there, but may be over-enthusiastic) followed by a smoothing-out sweetness that displays the tremednous balance of this pale ale. Really quite enjoyable, just wish it were a more robust body.

pivo (2579) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2005
Fresh hops, floral nose - bright hop res. Gold color, foamy lathery head. Soft malt body with a hint of sweet grapefruit. Fairly broad floral hoppy taste wtihout a biting bitter. Medium body. The balance is the key to this beer. Lots of hop character in a very smooth overall experience.

YogiBeera (2487) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Deep golden orange color. Small head on top that leaves some laces on the glass. Very intense orange and lavender nose. Floral, sage taste. Medium lasting - a bit thin bodied.

Darkover (1518) - 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 (8507) - 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 (2221) - 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 (4322) - 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.
