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

let me just say i love most of the southern tier beers... but this isnít one of them. itís not bad but certainly not extraordinarily... clear golden pour with a thin white head... i honestly canít get much on the tongue other than a slightly bitter hop finish... refreshing but thatís about it...

Pours a pale yellow/orange. Aroma is some citrus hops and mild sweet malts. Taste follows the nose. Nothing extraordinary and has a metal taste when drinking from the bottle. Not a bad beer for a standbye.

This was the best of the three Southern Tier beers I had at my brothers in Tennessee, with a light but decent hop flavor. A hint of light fruit as well. Still, none of the three were amazing.

Drinkable but nothing really extraordinary. More of a pale ale style with a dry citricy finish.

Full disclosure, this is labeled as PMX. Southern Tier said on their website they revamped this one, so it is different from the old Phin and Mattís (different abv, different flavor profile as far as I can tell and it seems like an overall better beer based on the more recent ratings. Bottled. Pours a golden honey color with a white head and thin lacing. Aroma is hops, orange, malt, slight dankness, a little piney. Flavor is hop forward, slight malt sweetness in the middle and a long bitter dry finish. Definitely the hop character youíd expect from an APA. More hoppy than balanced. Especially compared to their Live. Medium carbonation.

dlovell2 (895) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Poured Golden with white head. Biscuty malt aroma with some citrus. Flavor starts Caramel malt with biscuty malt and an earthy piney hop finish. Very balanced.

ST picked an odd one to call extraordinary. Nothing wrong with this one, but it does absolutely nothing to stand out either. Average for the style and tame for ST. Well balanced, traditionally hopped, slightly refreshing."

60minuteman (861) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle labeled PMX. A light lagerish pale ale. Starchy aroma coupled with grass, hops and malt. Not bitter or extreme in any way. Inoffensive pale that has balance in the flavor and aroma.
