COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the height of the heat in the heart of the summer, we felt that the only cure was a raging mouthful of fresh hops and malt. Caution: May remove enamel from teeth. This is Lagunitas IPA pumped up by about 30%!
IBU: 72.41

Big bottle. Pours a very nice hazt deep golden colour with a big long lasting rocky white head. Sweet very hoppy aroma. Flavour is sweet with a lot of hops, very fruity, citrus. Dry fruity finish. Very tasty brew!

badgerben (4852) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Gold color with a thin head. Pretty decent citrus hop aroma. Definite citrus hop taste with ample pine hop. Strong dry malt. It reminded me of Bells Hopslam, but not as grand.

Arayaga2 (2114) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Coppery color with off white head. Aroma is almost minimally hoppy for an IIPA, and the same goes for the flavor. Mediocre at best.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Pours a nice golden caramel amber. Nice soft malt and sweet citrus hops on the nose. Nice creamy mouthfeel with hints of citrus hops as well as a nice floral finishing bitterness.

massive floral hops on this pale honey pour. Liquified flower shop in this unusally creamy beer. Hops not over the top like so many IPAs.

Ah, a very nice offering from Lagunitas, who are known for their specialties and their occasional duds. This is as advertised, a highly hopped IPA that has a good bite and lingering hop flavor on the palate. Not sure if Iíd call it a double IPA, but itís much better than their standard IPA, if not just for the fresh taste alone. Glad I picked up a 6íer.

Darkover (1534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Hazy orange color with a beige head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Flavor of grapefruit hops. Not very malty, and pretty mild for a 2IPA, but its really good.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2008 on cask at the Night of the Living Ales 07. iíve not been a big fan of this beer or brewery for that matter but found the cask version quite tasty. nice pnw hop balanced well.3.6.

2008 vintage, 12oz bottle, 8.0%abv version. pours clear golden with white head. nose is piney and citrus hops but a big grainy malt aroma coming through and this really isnít that hoppy. was isnít that hoppy also, an earthy grainy flavor with some grapefruit hop notes. this is more like a single ipa or a 1.5 ipa. calling it maximus is a bit of a joke. 3.2.

Bottle. Strong hop aroma and some malt. It felt a little too carbonated on the palate. Good hop flavor with nice bitterness, but could use some malt for balance.
