COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Assertive hop bitterness and aroma which is balanced by a slight caramel maltiness. We add hops directly to the fermentor for a more pronounced hop aroma.

Fine nose and taste. Funny that this one fails on its appearance, little head, kind of unappealing color and clarity

Maxbier (650) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 Hazy copper with off-white head. Aroma is less dramatic than many of today’s IPAs, but still has aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, pine, and a slight medicinal smell. Earthy musty flavor, slightly watery malt, hop is subdued but present. Medium-high carbonation. Finish is hop bitter with some grapefruit.
