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

brewtopia 10/21/06. aroma of fresh sticky hops and some malt. Taste is the same, well balanced APA.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2006
12 oz bottle pours a light amber color with virtually no head. Very weak malty light carmel and hoppy aromas come into the nose. The mouthfeel is light to medium with some carbonation. The flavors come across as raw. Very raw, as if they had just bottled this days before. It tastes an awful lot like homebrew that needs to sit in the bottle and mellow for another couple weeks. Raw grain and malt flavors cling to my palate with a light bitterness. No date on the bottle but this tastes like it shouldn’t have been released yet.

Thanks to shadey for this bottle. Pours gold/amber, with a white head. Aromas are subtle, but very pleasant hops, with a touch of caramel. Flavors are slightly bitter hops, along with some fruit and caramel.

12 oz. bottle via trade with shadey - Pours a clear amber color with a nice off white head. Light lacing. Lively carbonation. Has a citrus hop aroma and flavor. Very little malt. Light to medium body. A decent PA, but not extraordinary. Thanks Shane.

milewide (2151) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Well balanced! Hops and malt both come through. Color is light amber, not "pale". I’m an IPA fan, but I like this better than Southern Tier’s IPA. A nice surprise in a World Market variety pack.

thornecb (5739) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Pours light amber into a shaker. Bright white conglomerate head leaves heavy lacing as it recedes. Sweet pine and resin aromas. Creamy but flat. Smarties with a slight bitter hop finish.

whenever there is a commercial description avaialable, I usually read it. that said, when I got to the part on this beer about "sprinkle it with fairy dust and wave our magic wands" I knew it was time to move on! clear gold with a fast fading head. mild hop aroma with flavors of mild caramel malt and more mild hop profile. nothing offensive here other than the commercial description. decent session brew, thanks to styles for the bottle.

shigadeyo (3656) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Clear orangy gold color. Generous carbonation that produces a lasting off white crown. Sweet candi and hop aroma. Distinct tangerine hop flavor. Flavor also starts a little sweet and then finishes with a delicately balanced bitterness and even a hint of tartness. I think this is a great American Pale Ale and quite memorable because of the tangerine flavor. I could probably sit around and drink this stuff non-stop! This was my second Southern Tier beer and I have been quite impressed with both. I have two more of the "regular" ST beers in the fridge to try and then I will have to go get their "upper end" ones in the 22 oz bottles. So far, so good. I think Southern Tier is going to make it onto my favorites list pretty quickly... 12 oz bottle, $1.71 from Belmont Party Supply.

On tap. Nice citrusy hop flavor. Very drinkable session beer. ST has made me a big fan this weekend.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Looks perfect! Crystal clear amber with a huge white head. Smell floral and slightly hoppy. So far so good. Taste is bread and yeast, under-hopped, with a stinky skunky vegetable finish. Drain pour, not because it is so bad, but because I have better stuff, including better stuff from Phin and Matt.
