With double the malt and triple the hops, this ale, with its powerful flavor and rich color, soars over a standard IPA. Columbus and Amarillo hops provide the intense bitterness and aroma. Pale and Crystal malts contribute sweetness to the Citrusy hop attack. Drink with Caution!

Maxbier (714) - Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2015
2015 bottle from Wegmans. Hazy dark straw/amber color with two finger off-white head. Fresh citrus apricot passionfruit aroma. Starts malty honey sweet, then hoppy bitterness comes through. Lemon citrus, tropical fruits lingering hop better finish. Very enjoyable. Had to edit this one 30 minutes later; as it warms up it gets better. Going 4.0.

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber orange pour with a small khaki head. Light citrus in the aroma, some hoppiness, a bit too much malt and caramel for me. Better flavor, nice bitterness, more citrus hop punch with some melon and tropical fruits, dank, resin. Not bad!

shadey (2020) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2013
22oz bottle. Cloudy yellow with only a thin ring of white head. Bright fresh hop aroma, but not really much malt. Light body dominated by up-front hop bitterness. Not bad, but there really isn’t anything complex about this. There is not malt balance. This is - as described on the label - a citrusy hop attack.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Light orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is pine resin, light citrus, a bit orangey. Flavor is a little overly sweet. Slightly cloying. Ok, but could use more balance.
