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

Bottle. Pours a good golden amber, with an ok white head. Aroma, hop heavy and tending towards the floral side, with a bit of citrus to balance. Flavor is of good hops, heavy again on the floral with citrus to mellow it a bit. Medium body, light on the tongue, but full in the mouth. Good hop bitter finish. Great IPA.

churchill00 (154) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle. Pours a beautiful amber color. Smells earthy with a strong aroma of wood--like cedar. Taste is expectedly hoppy for something called ’maximus’. Spicy in the mouth. Taste is strong, dry, and has a medium/long finish. I can’t shake the wood taste. Jeeez.

clasley (153) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 15, 2008
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with a nice off-white head. Good pine and citrus in the nose. Solid malt base offset by a goodly amount of hop bitterness. Decent balance. Tad sweet in the finish with a hint of lingering bitterness.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Purse hazy tangerine, aromas of sweet rich marmalade malt with a subtle hop citrus highlight. Flavour is immense: so much aggressive hop bitterness, complimented by an almost fruity, estery malt backbone, and rounded out with a lovely candied orange finish. Seriously one to hunt down.

hoju777 (152) - FRANCE - FEB 12, 2014
Smells like pine old mildew tents. Nice copper color. Tastes like resin and a little bit of grapefruit. Nice and thick and silky. This is good.

Pours a dark gold with plenty of fluffy white head. Aromatic of fresh hops. Medium bodied with plenty of hop bitterness.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2008
Pours a nice golden copper with a thick off white head. Leaves plenty of lacing throughout the session. Nice aroma of hops and pine. Flavor is pretty balanced for such a hoppy beer. Plenty of malt to keep things in check. Nice and resinous...sticky on the lips. Bitter hops finish. Very nice beer.

aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2007
My second Lagunitas brew....and again I’m fully impressed. Clean, cereal taste, mostly clear light pale yellow body. Similar to their Kil Ugly Radio IPA....not quite as Hoppy. Full bodied, tasty.

coachd (151) - Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2014
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.

Nice golden color, small white head. Nice hops flavor with a littlle less bitterness than you get in some others, which was nice. Very nice brew.
