This year to celebrate the annual return of Headroom we sought to make a special batch of beer that honored Headroom’s legacy yet challenged us to push the recipe forward. Our hoppiest beer ever, Max Headroom marks countless hours of formulation, planning, and execution. With a bumped up gravity to handle a massive hop charge of 11 pounds per barrel of Galaxy and Mosaic, Max Headroom is a beer we excited to finally share with you.
Pouring a heavy milky haze of pale yellow straw, Max Headroom is resplendent with ripe aromas of fresh pineapple and juiced citrus with a lively underpinning of clipped grass. With each sip, waves of tropical mango smoothies and guava crash over the palate highlighted by deep notes of orange candies, meyer lemon slices and freshly squeezed pink grapefruit. Extended cold conditioning keeps the bitterness from becoming overbearing, yet a gentle buzz of vibrant pine strikes a balance on the finish.
Max Headroom is medium bodied with a rounded mouthfeel and creamy, smooth body. We hope you are able to share this beer with the special people in your lives, raising a toast in celebration of time well spent together.
