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, "Weíve got to do better than that. This beer has to be better than any other in the galaxy." "Letís 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. "Iíve got it" exclaimed Matt, "weíll 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 IBUís, 5.6% ABV

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Excellent beer. Canít beat the fresh hops. It is hard to believe that this beer is only 37 IBUs. Aroma is piney with a dash of citrus. Touch of hop bitterness in the flavor. I donít pick up much flavor from the malts. Mouth feel is creamy and slightly oily. I think I like this a little more that New River Pale Ale, but it is awfully close.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Fresh hoppy aroma, resiny pine and citrus. Clear light amber color, dense off-white head. Hops still dominate the flavor, but they are more restrained than in the aroma. Moderate bitterness balanced by a nice maltiness with a little diacetyl. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Really nice session beer, I could easily sit down and drink a sixer of this - the hops make it interesting, and the flavors are subtle enough and balanced to make it easy drinking.

BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Crisp, hoppy aroma. Clear golden yellow in color with a thin white head. The taste is hoppy, but not too bitter. Overall, it is a good beer, but not my number one choice for a session beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2352) - California, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Golden orange body with a small head. Aroma is grapefruity, some hops. Some caramel as well as lighter fruits. Flavor is the same, finishing bitter and watery, which isnít a good mix in my opinion. Well, out of the sample pack... at least I enjoyed the IPA.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, fruity, and light hops. Carmel malty flavor with grapefruit rind and red grapefruit flesh. Medium body.

Sregnar35 (971) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2005
This is better than I expected, a nice pale ale. Had a nice hop finish and sweet body, a very good looking beer to boot.

hopdog (8852) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Opened with a loud and audible PSST sound. Poured all head. After settling down, poured a light to medium amber color. Aromas and tastes of grapefruit, light oranges, some pine and light caramel. Has a tea like quality to it in both appearance and tastes as well. Aromas and tastes on the softer side that worked well. Nice lacing left on the glass. Overall I enjoyed this one with the all head pour the only main down side.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Deep golden body with mild carbonation and a uniform sudsy white head. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit, sweet tangerine, and a mild catty/nutty note. Semi-dry but decent lightly toasty malt backing. Piney, hoppy flavor leads and finishes with some firm bitterness. Very good session ale. Thanks to Erway, whose generosity knows no bounds.

I finally remembered to rate it this time. Grassy grapefruit nose w. some straw/toasted malt. Tea-like hops dominate with some brown sugar, a bit of grapefruit. Medium toasted malt.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2005
orange with a slight citruiy kick to it. On first impression it seems a tad belgian-isk. THe flavor was hoppy with just a hit of the malts i expect from an apa. a intresting beer but still not quite up to style
