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%!

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pous a clear medium copper with a one finger white head that fades away rather quickly leaving a thin cap and a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma has the typical Lagunitas tropical fruit character. A touch of pine with a backing of bread and caramel albeit on the light side. Hops really dominate. The passionfruit and pine carried over into the flavor with Tons of tropical fruit up front. This is followed by a little bit of yeasty banana and a flash of ethanol. Bitterness is moderate to high leading to a dry, almost chalky, mouthfeel. Not much malt in the flavor maybe just a touch of bread. The body is a little bit thin which aids drinkability but somewhat subtracts from the overall experience. Overall, this is an ok beer but middle of the road as far as IIPA’s go. The body is a little too dry and this isn’t too much different from their standard IPA. Hop Stoopid is better and I probably won’t seek this one out again.

Great aroma with citrus, pine, and a little flowery hops. Bitter, fruity taste with citrus and a little underlying caramel. Fruit, pine, and alcohol in the finish. Overall a fine effort.

Vraiment très bonne quoique un peu terne visuellement... Les houblons sont bien dosés et l’alcool ne prend pas toute la place comme plusieurs comparables. Un beau cadeau de la part d’un collègue ;-)

Mycket god öl med en distinkt smak av humle, ölet passar utmärkt till grillad flankstek ala tex mex osv. Jag upplevde en känsla av rus efter den åttonde flaskan, detta öl avnjutes särskilt i sällskap av nära fränder och övriga människor, inte att förväxlas med sofiero eller åbro.

SPDickerman (1038) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Pours orange with a large white head. Smells earthy with some solid citrus notes. Taste is juicy citrus with a caramel sweetness backbone. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Lagunitas Maximus finishes with a soft lingering bitterness.

plaugher (245) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
12oz bottle into a tumbler. Pours a slightly opaque golden colour with lastig white head and lots of lacing. Subtle, pleasant nose of pine hops, light citrus. Some malt. Slightly sweet, but not overpoweringly so; light bitter finish. Very pleasant.

ianwelby (696) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Keg at Drygate. Clear amber beer with a thin head. Dry, sour fruit aroma. Flavour is crisp refreshing fruit, a slightly sour grapefruit hint, with bitter hop cutting through it perfectly to stop it being sickly. Leaves an almost too-sweet aftertaste but again, it’s just right with a certain tartness there. Tremendous beer.
