Style: Fresh Hops IPA / ABV: 6% / IBU: 60 / EBC: 10
Max Smasher is a SMASH (Single Malt And Single Hop) IPA brewed with fresh hops farmed and harvested by my homebrewer friend Max. The delicate and simple Maris Otter base together with a neutral yeast allow to enhance the aromas and flavors of the Centennial hops that characterizes this beer.
Appearance: Color somewhere between straw yellow and light gold very clear, with a white head not particularly abundant but that persists for a while
Aroma: Aroma not particularly intense for the style but that releases a very good scent of mango with some pineapple, citrus and very very light notes of malt and honey
Mouthfeel: Beer with a medium-low body and a moderate carbonation typical of the style, in the mouth leaves a pleasant sensation of freshness
Taste: Unlike in the aroma, in the mouth the malt is well present coupled by a light grapefruit and some herbaceous notes. The sweet taste that accompanies the entire sip remains also in the aftertaste, not surmounted by the bitterness absolutely not intense but well present
