Named in honor of one of the best Big Wave Surfing areas in the world, and the man who first surfed it, Jeff Clark. Mavericks is a robust American amber ale with rich malt and fresh hops in perfect balance. Full bodied and refreshing! Our signature brew

Bottle. Nose is pleasantly hoppy, not too string, but definitely not too weak. Taste, while sipping, is cool and crisp, slightly watery, kind of like soda water. Hops then kicks in right after the sip. Great flavor. Flavor is of hops and very slight floral notes, with hops dominating. Slight yeast detected i nthe afertaste. Very refreshing. I wish I had left this one in the freezer a bit longer. Carbonation is slightly deficient.

Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark amber orange, little white head. Nose is sweet industrial woody herbal syrup, oddly sticky, unpleasant with low pine resin. Taste is weird plaster, dough, industrial woody syrup,… Feels processed almost. Not a fun, unpleasant industrial-like syrup affair.

Bomber. Tall Boys, Leeds. As Mavericks Amber Ale. Hazy, reddy amber. Good covering of lasting, off white head. Nose has light toffee malts. Some berry fruit. Some earthy nuttiness. Taste is light dry. Light sweet. Foamy mouthfeel. Light dry finish. Probably well past it’s prime, and just about OK as a result.
