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

Light aroma. Not much carbonation or head. Pours a slightly hazy gold. Grapefruit and a touch of pear, with pleasantly mild hop bitterness on the finish. An easy drinker, but don't take that as a negative. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 Matt’s (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 you’d expect from an APA. More hoppy than balanced. Especially compared to their Live. Medium carbonation.

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
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 (788) - Frazer, 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.

Darkmagus82 (1728) - - AUG 10, 2014
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.
