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

Hopsclation (89) - Chicago, - JUN 22, 2013
Very strong pinneapple and citrus flavors with nice dry finish. Very good, but I wouldnt seek it out. Needs more hops to balance out the alcohol.

storskurk (86) - DENMARK - OCT 12, 2013
DIPA duft. DIPA smag. God øl. Dejlig moderat karbo. Rund maltet smag efterfulgt af fyldig bitterhed og alkoholsødme. Ikke så tør igen. Rar øl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep amber with one-finger white head that laces pretty well. Hops aren’t too strong on the nose for the style, with some stickiness and lots of malt character. Some tropical fruit citrus, perhaps pineapple, lurking in the background. Taste is hoppy, but with much more malt than expected. Very coarse beginning, with initial hop bitterness quickly countered by fruity sweet malt. Pine is evident mid-sip as well which is nice. Sticky finish that lingers on the tongue. Drinkability is decent, nothing incredible for the style, but still solid. Lagunitas cranks out affordable, good beers and I laud them for that.

Burnt orange / coppery color. Smells like caramel and roasted oranges. Akin to the smell, lots of sweet fruit, understated bitterness, some malty sweetness as well.

hiphop (84) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
magnum bottle, came out of the bottle as a classic IPA does - nice amber hue, thin head which dissipated in snifter quite quickly. Aroma of piney hops that follows through on the palate with a mild carbonation full of piney turned sweet hops with kudos to a malt backbone. Second time tasting, second time enjoyed.

Tap @ Lagunitas: clear bright orange with a thin head and short lacing. Aroma is predominant orange, citrus, all hops up front, Taste of sweet citrus, some maltyness, floral. Good bright clean mouth feel, good lasting bitter finish. Good balanced brew!

On tap in the Horse & Plow Pours a blazing orange with a thick, creamy white head. Huge citrus hops on the nose with grapefruit and pine. Great bitterness with the usual West Coast IPA charactoristics. Finishes with a mild alcohol burn. For such a big beer, it’s very light and crisp. So heavy on the hops, maybe a one or two maximum for Maximus.
