COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our hoppiest beer! The complex character of American hops and amber colored caramel malts make this beer very crisp and refreshing. Silver Medal winner at the G.A.B.F. 2001.

Pours a dark amber with small white head. Smells of hops and a little citrus. Strong flavor. Pine, little citrus, and lots of hops keep your palate occupied. Overall good beer. Thirsty Dog proves themselves time and time again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber. Hoppy, clean and solid. More of an APA to me.

maxwelldeux (3069) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose has a hint of hoppy bitterness to it with caramel malts coming in the forefront. Taste is a little bitter and feels nice and crisp. Good brew.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12 oz. Bottle. More like a one and a half IPA. Stronger than a single, but IMO not quite a double. Sweet citrus hop to piney perfume scent. Bubbly white foamy head over a dark copper, clear pour. Light/med body with a crisp feel. Pine bitter hop flavor to sour citrus note (brief) settling on a meld of both flavors.

Aroma is pineapple, light pine, yeast and malts. The flavor is tropical fruit/pineapple, malts, citrus, grapefruit and a medium bitter/dry finish.

NOTE: This was a firkin that was dry-hopped with some extra simcoe. Solid brew, but a little on the generic side. Well-balanced, tasty, easy-to-drink.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Pours slightly hazy amber with a good, off-white head. Scent is caramel and hops.....a little spice. Taste is malty, floral/herbal bitter, caramel. Nice bitterness throughout, though not as hoppy as you would be led to believe.

Nice malt flavor. Caramel color and taste. Not too hoppy despite the Maximus claim. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nephilium (1259) - Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2012
A touch of quickly fading floral hops, and a touch of caramel in the aroma. The beer pours a clear amber, with a thin white head. Very deep malt backbone, with lots of caramel coming through. There’s a touch of floral hops in the beginning, with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Not quite what I would expect in a beer referenced as their hoppiest beer, and Hoppus Maximus, but not a bad amber.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Clear deeper golden. This seems to have more Euro hops. They are tart and dry. Not bad.
