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

From a twelve ounce bottle - Pours a reddish-amber color with a tall white head and piney aroma. Tastewise, I like it (very Sierra Nevadaesque) but it’s a bit heavy on the evergreen flavors.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a nice little head. Scents of fruit predominate the nose. It’s almost like a fruit sweet but not overly sweet, apricot and/or peaches. A nice balanced APA, not a near IPA, but subdued, but still present hops. Nice session brew.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 Much better on tap than in a bottle. Clear clean fruitty taste with crisp hops and a good color.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Draft at Coles, enjoyed while drinking with Rudolf and IPfreeley. Pours murky copper red with a malty and floral hop aroma. Very dominant citrus hop flavor with a nicely balanced malt profile. Slight dry and bitter finish. A very solid APA, and a tad hoppy which is how I like it.

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2006
It has a lovely crisp aroma of flowery hops but the taste doesn’t quite live up the fumes. There is an apple-like maltiness which seems to override the hop content. In the aftertaste there is a bitter spike reminiscent of a biscuit swimming in a cup of tea. Dry finish is present as with the other Southern Tier brews I’ve sampled.

kramer (6578) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Eyedrinkale. Pours a hazy orangish copper under a small white head composed of very fine bubbles. Nice perfumy hop aroma with a light citrus fruitiness of tangerines and lime zest. Flavor is fruity and crisp, so much citrus flavor you’d swear they added oranges to this. Very well balanced and thirst quenching. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with very fine carbonation yielding a creamy mouthfeel. A pretty nice Pale Ale. Not overly aggressive or in your face, but a nice session drinker.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Pours a golden blonde with a clear bubbly body that leaves a 1in off-white head. The aroma is strong hops, lemon, honey, and a chalky sweet tarts feel. The taste is balanced, starts floural hoppy, with a slight herbal tea sweetness. There is a lemon honey presence that has a natural "honeycomb" taste. The floural hop presence is great, very different and the finishes is smooth with a soft creamy feel on the throat.

Lively golden ale body with tiny fizzies, biscuit malts and average bitterness. Consumed on a "One Ale Wednesday".
