Out of the bottle so color is hard to judge. Smell is sweet without much hoppiness. Taste is much sweeter than I expected or would have liked. Not too bad, but not my favorite.

Maximus is a great name for this beer, although when you pour it into a glass it seems harmless, but the taste is strong and flavorful. If you are going to drink the whole six pack make sure you donít have anything to do till late morning-early afternoon the next day because you will feel like you fought a gladiator named Maximus and it wonít be clear whether you won or lost. But even if you wake up in the bed of a married woman youíll know you had a good time.

This is a good IPA, piny taste. Was definitley lacking in aroma when compared with some other IPAs. Very citrusy. Was cloudy in appearance.

Maybe this would be better on tap. Lagunitas makes some great IPAs but this is not one of them. The hops just arenít there, they donít have the intense citrus kick that a good California ipa should have.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rather hazy amber-orange, diminishing head. Very hoppy on the nose, with grass-clippings and citrus. Thick body, moderately sweet, with a wonderfully bitter ending.

From a bottle. Pours a capper color. Aromas of piney and citrus hops. More citrusy, piney hops in the taste with some caramel malt. Very dry finish. Good double IPA.

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 IPAís. At 8.2%, I donít 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.
