The authors study theoretically reflection on the surface of a metamaterial with a hyperbolic dispersion. It is found that reflection is strongly dependent on how the surface is terminated with respect to the asymptote of the hyperbolic dispersion. For a surface terminated normally to the asymptote, zero reflection occurs for all incident angles. It is exemplified by a metamaterial made of a periodic metal-dielectric layered structure with its surface properly cut through numerical simulations.
