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

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.

Scopey (7193) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
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...

Idiosynkrasie (4025) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2014
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.

ibrubeer (140) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle. Floral hoppy aroma. Clear light Amber color, with light white color to head. Flavor is a little citrus, with light pine. Medium body. Very nice DIPA!

Vaiz (3530) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean amber wheat in glass with off-white head. Minimal webbing. Warm pine, grapefruit and caramel nose. Borderline creamy. Medium body. Combination of candy sweetness and a mild, piney bitterness. Grapefruit on aftertaste. Full, round flavors. Enveloping mouthfeel. Higher ABV not obvious. Good, but a bit sweet.
