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%!

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with a diminishing head that leaves nice lacing in the class. Thick, grassy cascade hop aroma. Initial sweetness is balanced by tremendous bitterness, all inside a viscous body. The finish is lingering and pleasant.

GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Pours a clear amber color. Aroma is mostly citrus. The body is medium. The alcohol is subdued considering the high ABV. The taste is hops with a nice amount of sweetness. It is well balanced, smooth and has a clean finish with little lingering bitterness. A very nice DIPA.

Pours in a golden amber color with longlasting line of white head. The aroma consists of hop, malt, tropical fruits, honey and pinapple. The flavour is hoppy and sweet with citrus, tropical fruit and honey.

This beer pours with a firm white head and a nice appearance in amber. Clear taste of hops and a great final. Powerful and full taste and long lasting palate.

12 oz. bottle. Filtered, orangish gold. Really nice thick off white head with good lacing. Smell is grapefruit and tons of piney hops. Taste is citrusy and bitter with a good amount of malt sweetness to balance the strong hops. Nice velvety smooth texture. This is a great go to if you want an affordable DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2006
The Maximus is indeed a beer to be reckoned with. It pours a medium amber color, crested by an average, fizzy off-white head. A mostly diminishing head leaves fair lacing in its wake, as your eyes peer down into the sparkling body below. Aroma is of moderate flowery hops and light yeast, with a presence of alcohol. Initial taste is moderately sweet, which caught us off guard, but we were slapped back into reality with a moderately bitter finish. Medium on the mouth, it has a watery texture with soft carbonation. A moderate alcohol tinge is left behind to remind you that this is not a light beer. Dog gone good!

BigBang (299) - Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Orange color with little head. Aroma is dark fruit, hops. Taste is the same with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is good- some lingering. Not as smooth for lower ABV (among DIPAs).
