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.
43 IBUs.

Pailhead (5554) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Bottle: Strong caramel aroma with a touch of hops. Pours a hazy amber with a white head with a little yellow tinge. Real malty. Lots of caramel up front. Finishes a little sour with below average hops.

CBCPaleAle (73) - Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2004
On tap in Canton. Orange/brown color with a hoppy aroma. Not an immense hops taste as the name would imply, but very good overall.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2004
(Brewed and bottled by Frederick Brewing) This is a fine looking beer with an off white head. The nose starts hoppy, but turns malty. The palate is medium in body with a good balance between hops and malt. With a name like Hoppus Maximus, I expect more hops of course, but at 43ibu this beer is a bit under hopped for its moniker. A solid, but not distinct ale.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Appearance: the color is amber heading into orange, with some opacity, and proudly bears a thick, creamy head, gently dwindling down Aroma: gifted with citric hoppiness, sweet, juicy, inviting, bursting with tropical fruit, as well, mango, papaya, grapefruit, peach, a spritz of lime. Very nice! Good, bitter hoppy bite greets the palate, and clings to the tastebuds. A rounded, rosy, balanced-enough ale, with an extra hoppy edge that never quits. Fruity flavor continues citric, with orange and lemon-y character, too. Excellent. This hophead is goodly pleased. I could go a round with some of these and never tire of the taste.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Deep sparkling copper, thin white foamy head. Nose is full of sweet pine, spicy lemon and grapefruit zest with a touch of sweet rich caramel. Decent balance with citirc hops beating up the sweet malt for the win. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, piney semi-dry finish. A solid session brew...

Goblincat (387) - Westland, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Pours light copper with fluffy off-white head. Nose is floral hops with a touch of sour citrus. Taste is a dry citrus with nowhere near the hops bite I expected from the name Hoppus Maximus. Some hops are there, but I was expecting an IPA strength. Mouthfeel is thin and a little weak and oily.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Light amber in color with a small white head. Fruit and citrus hop aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a hoppy citrus character.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Pours copper with a medium bubbly head which leaves no lacing. Spicy, hoppy aroma. True to its name, this beer’s flavor is dominated by hops. Thin mouthfeel. Decent, but not great.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Orange with a slight red tinge, fast ending off-white head. Grapefruit aroma with a touch of lemon. Watery body, fizzy mouthfeel. The ending takes away a bit for this beer.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Tap: Amber with frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of pine, light grapefruit, toasted biscuit/pale malts, and some grainy esters. The taste is bitter and metallic, the malt is too subdued, therefore comes off unbalanced. The feel is watery and thin. This beer starts nice and finishes weak, disappointing, an IPA IMO. (JSquire said this is better in bottle, I’ll hold him to it).
