3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid iipa... This beer is at least a step to a step and a half above most iipas. It is solid everywhere...it could use a bit more hop aroma up front but is filled with strong hop flavors and that sweet bitterness doubles are known for. The only thing hopslam beats this on is aroma up front...every other round Maximus wins..plus this baby is 22 oz for $5.99!lagunitas loves the American people and its easy to get!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. squat bottle poured into s a snifter. Clear Amber with small off-white head. Aroma is light herbal hops and malt backbone, medium/thick body, low carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is bitter hops and strong malt backbone. Lots of flavor, but not that hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typisches Imperial IPA.
Exotisch hopfig, dazu Karamell.
Mango, Grapefruit, Orange im Aroma und Geschmack. Insgesamt leider zu bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Creamy heading, light amber colour, lots of hops on the nose, creamy mouthfeel, less hops than the nose, more malty. I like it though!

Tried this in a 20 oz bottle my son bought me for my birthday. For an IPA I was quite amazed, it was very pleasant, had a more than expected floral flavor which improved the normal IPA bitterness. My son bought it at World Mart in Keizer.

Fairly good. Dank and fairly bitter. I remember other bottles as way more of tropical fruits, could this be batch variation maybe?

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
22 oz into glass. Clear bright copper. Nice white head pretty stable with decent lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus. Maybe passion fruit? A hint of hops.
Taste refreshing with moderate residual bitterness from the hops. Can't believe it's 8.2 abv. Or that it's 72 IBU. A fantastic IPA.

Aroma: sweet notes, appricot, honey, passion fruit.
Appearance: hazy amber color, thin white head.
Taste: high bitterness (passion fruit), citrus notes, malty, something like honey notes, semi-sweet.
Palate: full body and medium carbonation, bitter finish.
Overall: Really good IIPA, really drinkable and complex.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Light hoppy nose. Typical double, decent balance, though not enough to mask the abv.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good colour, clean aroma with notes of cereal and citrus with slight resinous overtones. Smooth yet snappy entrance to palate, with more zesty citrus backed my good malty notes with distinct resinous overtones. Strong.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice light copper color, aroma very pronounced, citrus, nice lacing very light colored head, medium (?) body, very smooth. Hard to believe it has the IBU and ABV rating it does. Definitely an above average IPA.
