3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark yellow, slightly orange colour, a head is medium and blond. The nose has peaches, nice fructose, some mandarin and melon, rainy pine forest. Taste isn’t so sweet than aroma, the strong bitterness dry the taste. Anyway, strong and almost full bodied is nicely balanced with hoppyness. In the simple taste has pine needles, some grapefruits, only hint of fruits, dry resin in the end. Maximus isn’t the modern fruit sallad. Rough bitterness with nice balance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hoppy, piney, distinctive Lagunitas scent. Some malt detected, but mostly pine hops. Dark golden color with a massive amount of white foam. The taste is not a hop bomb like I was expecting. It is a bit sweet at first, with hops showing up at the end but even then they are not overwhelming. Palate is smooth; not as fizzy as many other IPA’s. At 8.2%, I don’t know if I would call it a DIPA, but it is a beer I could drink right out of the bottle on a summer day.

72.41 IBUs? That might be a deal breaker, I usually only like beers under 72.405 IBUs... 12oz bottle with dust on it into La Petite Tulipe - nose is a freshly opened bag of hops with what I currently suspect will be a noticeable malty backbone. Easy drinking for a DIPA. Slight minty/citrus aftertaste. I picture myself drinking this ice cold while being entranced at a large campfire/field party fire on a humid night in the summer. Abfackeln!!!
