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

Transfer from BA review on 10-30-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours an orange - golden color with a nice two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, eventually fading to give moderate lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of citrus and bready hops. Mixed with these are some pine hop as well as a light herbal smell. Taste – The taste begins big of malt and bread. These two initial flavors remain throughout the taste and maintain a relatively dry taste, which is quite nice for the style. As the taste advances from the beginning, flavors of a more citrus and herbal flavor come to the tongue. These tastes are met with a light earthy flavor at the end of the taste profile. All in all, a pleasantly hopped and crisp flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in creaminess/thickness as well as carbonation. Combined they are a nice blend for drinkability as well as the hop and bready flavors of the beer. Overall – A quite pleasant brew. Wonderfully smooth and delicious. A great easy drinking and crisper brew.

Golden with a fair amount of white head. Light citrus, slightly sweet. Some damp hay, grass. Mild bitterness that persists. Fairly small amount of sweetness at all. Mid light body, quite crisp, effervescent. Pretty well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomTron (370) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours a clear orange with not much head lasting. Aromas of citrus hops and yeast. Decent amount of hops in the taste with some malty sweetness lingering. Nothing really "extraordinary" about this, but it is a solid drinker. Perhaps something I would introduce to someone who is just getting into the style or craft beers in general.

Poured from a bottle, couldn’t really discern the different types of hops, but it was a very satisfying beer with the typical grapefruit flavor. Tall suds-like head, reduced quickly but stuck around for awhile. Refreshing beer.

It pours a beautiful golden amber color with a thin head that fades fast leaving just a few bubbles around the sides of the glass. The aroma get a kick of citrus, floral and piney hops with undertones of sweet bready malts. Its flavor starts with sweet bready malts with a light toasted note. It soon builds up to a burst of fruity and piney hops with a decent bitterness that fades off into the finish. The palate is smooth and slightly oily with average carbonation and a medium body.
