4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 LTD sampled 6-2-2008: Pours copper w/ a tall lasting head. Good lacing. Strong bitter sweet aromas. Full nctar w/ good carbonation. A fat malty sweetness pushes bright, fresh citrus candy forward. The hop component grabs my tongue and ties it in a knot while the malty goodness tries to soothe my wounds. The finish is bittered well w/ a malty sweetness hanging in the wind.
Maximus Regular: Pours a golden copper color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Good hangtime. Residual lacing is clasic w/ a full down comforter and snail tracks. Aroma of fresh hopsy pine sap and thick malts. Nice! Full nectar w/ ample residual nectar. Ths is a malty version w/ a mild sweetness balanced by a moderate grapefruit rind hop profile. Flavors are integrated well w/ a touch of perfume. Fat caramel malts, punchy hops, what more could you ask for ? The finish is long and leaves a mild sweetness on the palate as well as abundant grapefruit bittering.
Flavors are more pronounced as it warms. Not as hoppy as the commercial description suggests and a little light on the alcohol for it’s style. All in all a rather enjoyable beer that leans slightly out of style. If this brew was the typical 9 or 10 abv with this same balance, it would be a classic brew indeed.

Slightly hazy light amber pour. Nose is crisp citrus, C-hop, honey, spice. In the mouth it is a crisp, clean flavor, lots of bitterness and floral. Very nice. Aftertaste is a soft bitterness and honey.

(bottle - 22 oz) Clear reddish and coppery color with a soapy yet lasting slightly off-white head. Heavy floral and hop aroma with a slight undertone of caramel malts. The taste begins with a smooth and peppery hop taste and goes to a floral middle and slightly sweet middle with a peppery and floral finish. Leaves a nice and bitter aftertaste.

(On bottle)Impressive title, but kind of a quiet drink. Has a good hopping, nice berrÿ/sugarish aroma and a full malty finish, but not enough to be a real kicker.

Bottle. Copper colored with creamy white head dragging fine laze. Aroma is "typical American IPA": Cat pee, citrus etc. Flavor is malty with hints of apricot, strawberry. Finishes with intense sharp and pleasant bitterness. Gets a bit watery in the end, but nonetheless very good.
