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

12 ounce bottle. Deep yellow gold color. Large foamy off-white head. Tropical fruit nose with lots of resiny pine hops. Bittersweet hops and toasted malt with notes of mango, black pepper and more pine. This is a tasty IPA that drinks smooth and easy. Hides the 8.2% ABV very well. Finishes dry and spicy. Well done!

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.

Pours a clear amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, grass, pine and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. Nice one.

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.
