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

gegwilson (621) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle in Pivni. Pours hazy golden with a white head. his was a bit of a disappointing experience. There are some good caramel and citrus notes, but the flavours aren’t particularly strong. Nice enough, but far from extraordinary.

Mep3222 (315) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Full flavored and malty. Do not get much hop aroma, mostly malt and a little lagerish stinky ness. Nothing special but nothing is bad about it either. Mostly a malty ale with a bit of a bitter hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rollinsr (335) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JAN 6, 2014
Pours a light and slightly hazy amber. Aroma is grapefruit and orange citrus hops. Flavor brings out much of the citrus hop character with not a whole lot of the bitterness. The malts are well-balanced offering up an ale that has character on both the hop and malt fronts.
