I have to agree with the previous rater. Negative one points for the name and negative two points for quite possibly the gayest label I have ever seen on a beer bottle. Otherwise it was a middle of the road pale ale. some caramel and some hops. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2006

First of all I am automatically deducting one point for the commerical description: "they knew it had to be different if they were to call it extraordinary." so to make it different they: "use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malt, and put a little more love in every batch," yeah so what craft brewer doesn’t claim to use the finest and "more love?" That is like tasting the "cold" in a Coors. Sad. Anyway back to the beer.
Wow it smells so different..I mean it has caramel malt and some hops like most other pale ales, but I was told it was difefrent so I FEEL like it smells different. Well here is something different...most APA’s have some semblance of a head and this one doesn’t...at all. Just a light orange/yellow color and a wisp of white film on top. Fore is pretty nice..lots of a caramel malt with a little tinge of citrus kissed hops toward the back end. It’s fairly tasty, but not at all different. hotstuff (5258) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Bottle. Small white head that quickly dissipated, poor lacing, carbonated, hazy, and a light orange hue. Aroma was malty, caramel and hoppy. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, hoppy, and thin. Tingly, thin mouthfeel. Light-medium body. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2006
(Draught) Sampled at the Central New York Brewfest on February 4, 2006. Headless with an amber body. Full-on piney notes and flavour. Mildly bitter Phin-ish. Terribly unbalanced and unidimensional. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 5, 2006
In the bottle. Thanks to Springslicker for the beer! Medium amber/copper with an off white head. Aroma is sublime with a nice crisp hop scent. A little bit toasted as well. Yummy! A very balanced blend of medium palate bitterness and maltiness. Slightly fruity and full of gypsum. This is a well-made beer.

I loved this one by Southern Tier, the aroma and taste was extraordinary, phin and matt did a great job on this one! ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JAN 13, 2006
There is a light grapefruit and citrusy aroma. The color is amber and the head is small, white, and rapidly diminishing. No lacing is present. The taste is dry and hoppy. Tmoney99 (14965) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with an average creamy white had that was lasting. Good complex hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body. Moderate hoppy flavor with a medium bitter finish. Very drinkable brew. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 7, 2006
average brew, hazy-n-yellow. A sweet aroma. watery malt taste which was mainly caramalish and some hop bite. Some alcohol taste. kinda watery though. Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2005
12 oz bottle Pours a hazy yellow amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is of spruce and citrus, with a touch of nut malts. Has a medium body with a very smooth taste. Moderate bitter and acid, light sweetness. This is a very drinkable beer. I love this one. Might have to get it for the kegerator.
