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

Pale golden body was clear, and the head was a two finger thick layer of foam. The aroma was grainy and slightly vegetal with a dash of piney hops. The taste was oddly sour which was followed by a nondescript bitterness from the hops. The body felt refreshing and light with the tangy sourness helping the beer go down easy. Not a bad beer to accompany some food or when enjoying a game with a friend.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a brief white head. Aroma is light hops and light malt. Medium body, taste carries on with the aroma although it is balanced. Slight bitter hop finish. Ok, not great but not bad.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. You can really taste the hop blend and the different types of malts. Truly extraordinary!

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 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.
