Tasting Notes:

The first thing you notice is a lovely, citrus-tinged aroma wafting off Madman with a Box. The huge malt bill confers a gorgeous spun gold color and tons of toasty goodness. Copious hop additions manage to balance out the maltiness and remind you that this is, in fact, an IPA, but without the hops sucker-punch that some IPAs have. Even non-hopheads agree this beer is “actually pretty good” and “much better than I expected”. We may be biased, but this is a fantastic brew and a great premiere from LaserShark!

I think it’s safe to say that the flavour is bigger on the inside.
