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

Pours a clear bronze with a thin, but nicely-lacing white head. Aroma has a nice hoppy presence and a touch of sweet caramel malt. Body starts semi-sweet with some nice fresh hoppy assertiveness, but fades toward dullness in the finish. A crisp, drinkable beer, but sort of a let down after the aroma and first sip. Thanks to slob for the bottle.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a light clear yellow color with a small amount of fizzy white head. Not much in the way of aroma...a little sweet, a little hoppy, but not much of either. Flavor is quite bland too. Malty with a sprig of hops. Overall, a very very average beer.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Hazy deep golden/orange in color with a small white lacing around the rim. Aroma of citrus,pine,oranges and toasted malt. Assertive bitterness upfront,hoppy, with a bitter dry finish.

Boooooring. If you want to drink a whole lot of beer and won’t drink budweiser, get this. It’s plain and inoffensive. Definitely drinkable, in that I finished the 6 pack with no complaints, but I barely noticed. Utterly average American pale ale.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 Bottle: Hazy orange with a thin white head, huge grapefruit/orange aroma, starts and ends bitter, full bodied with an orange aftertaste. Smells more like an IPA than a pale ale, but who am I to complain.

This was a great change after 2 dissapointments this tasting session. Great aroma and very clean mouthfeel.

pretty regular APA. some extract-like oxidation twangy notes, but otherwise drinkable and enjoyable. not as good as the bottle description says!! but i’ll definitely have another one.

notalush (5392) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2005
Extraordinary this is not - not much going on here except the minor hop profile and some bread-like qualities with nothing grounding it or holding the flavors together - high carbonation only accentuates the missing flavors.

DYCSoccer17 (3498) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
Bottle. Quite an aggressive piney hoppiness in the nose of this with a bit of pepperiness. Very aromatic. Transparent copper color with nice frothy off-white head. Nice roasted caramel malts in the middle backs up the peppery hoppiness to start. Finishes bitter with some pine notes. There seems to be a void in this beer. I remember the harvest being more aggressive and flavorful than this. This is still very solid. I’d like to try the two side by side to really see if there is any difference between the two, though.

radiomgb (2519) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2005
Bottle. Light golden in colour. Aroma light cookie malts and lemony hops. The flavour was of mild malt, some light floral hops, citrus. Medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes short and clean. Not bad but fairly forgettable.
