Spicy, dry grapefruit aroma. Deep, resinous flavor, with grapefruit and a warm frutiness. Very beautiful.

Bomber shared pours a bright golden orange with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of huge citrus, apricots, mangos and possibly orange. The flavor is of the amped up version of their ipa. Damn tasty. Medium malt and plenty of hops.

Cask gravity at GBBF 2014. It pours orange with a small white head. The nose is orange chewits, candy, boozy, apricot, peachy, dried mango and five alive fruit juice. The taste is bitter, orange, apricot, chewits, peppery, grapefruit, sticky, booze, leather, some astringency, resin with a warming, citrussy finish. Medium+ body, low carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Rich, fruity and boozy. Pretty punchy. Would have been better on keg though...

Ah yes, liquid gold! Nice job Lagunitas. Maximus is a nice walk down dry citrus and spruce avenue. Although hoppy, this is offset by a considerable caramel and perhaps even nutty backbone. Serving: multi-12oz bottle experience.

No alcohol taste which is impressive. Fruity but not citrusy. Very good bitterness...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Clear, deep dark orangey golden to amber colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Intense, resinous and piney hoppy aroma, orange fruitiness is condensed to a liquorice note, caramel malty background with bitter almond touch. Taste is initially fruity hoppy, notes of mandarine, orange, grapefruit, later more bitter, resinous, caramel malty basis with bitter almond note. Very nice colour, slightly too condensed intensity, therefore almost a bit monotonous or at least onesided.

Bottle in a hotel room in Las Vegas. Bright orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, quite floral, citrus, pine, resin and very refreshing. Flavor is bitter fruity hops and some biscuits. Quite intense but clean and refreshing. Nice.

Pours a golden amber with white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma and taste of pine, grass, grapefruit, white bread, and caramel and a littlebit like my ex wife, bitter. Less hoppy, more malty.
