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

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 12 oz. bottle; clear, golden yellow pour with small, quickly falling head. This beer is reminiscent of the old Pete’s Wicked Ale as it comes to room temperature. Lots of floral hop aroma. Thin on malt flavor, this ale brings the three-variety hop bill and long finish right up front. This is no "hop bomb" by any means, but I missed the malt/grain backbone and any flavor complexity mid-palate with the dominant hop "half" of this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: slightly hazy golden color, pours with a small off white head that fades quickly Aroma: slight grass and pine, pretty faint Taste: bitter throughout, has lots of bitterness, hints of grass, citrus, pine Palate: lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste, lighter mouthfeel Overall: this is delicious, very bitter and hoppy, easy drinking, seems to have more flavors hidden in there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darkmagus82 (1268) - - 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.

TomTron (376) - 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.
