I loved the taste of hops in this beer. At the same time, this beer was missing something. When I drank it, it was like I was only tasting part of a recipe. But there was nothing more to it. I like a lot of hops, but I like other flavors to give the drink more character. This drink was pretty simple and straight forward. But the beer lives up to the name Hoppus Maximus. Pure hops -nothing more, nothing less.

12 ounce bottle -> Westbrook Brewing snifter

A - Medium amber to red semi-cloudy pour with a small off white head, a thin retention ring and lots of lacing.

S - The nose is very weak. What is there is pleasant enough. It is sort of an earthy smell with some bready qualities.

T - Sweet and malty on the initial taste followed by a decent hop profile with some spiciness to it.

M - a bit of an aftertaste.

O - okay beer with no truly outstanding qualities.
