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

I rate this IPA very high. Nice aroma, good appearance and the taste is different than any other IPA I have tried. Just an excellent IPA. The IBU is 72. I had a friend try it and he too thought they are putting more malt or something in the beer to give it a different, great taste. One issue I have though. I called the brewery in Petaluma, CA to complain about the white stuff floating in the bottom. The beer was about 4 or 5 months old. The person I spoke to said the owner (he was reading it off something) claimed it was nothing other than protein and it was good for you. My son and I think that is a bunch of B S - this beer is 7.5% and after 120 to 150 days it should not exhibit white matter floating in the bottom of the bottle. It was kept in a closest in my basement. So try this great IPA - but don’t let it sit around too long unless you want to drink some floating "protein".

Bottle pour with a solid head. Mild citrus aroma. Very smooth for a DIPA, not a lot of bite. Overall a very good beer.

Poured into a pint glass ...the color on this beer is perfect a nice hazy orange/amber,lots of citrus on the nose very juicy grapefruit, oranges,mango and pineapple are all mixed in here ,nice 2 finger off white head with decent lacing,taste is actually sweet for a IIPA but is very refreshing with a heavy malt backbone to level out the hops up front and a nice bitter finish, a damn good brew...cheersl

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderately thick white head. Nice hoppy nose with some great malty and hoppy bitter flavors to it. A little thick, but a fun drink.

In bottle, crystal clear with half-pinky of bright white head and solid lacing. Nose is loaded with fresh tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, tangerine. Taste is sweet with malt at the front, and ends with sticky, resinous fruit aftertaste. Medium carbonation that leaves you wanting more. Overall an excellent DIPA, not on par with Pliny, but in terms of availability and price, an excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lately I can't get enough of this beautifully balanced and pleasingly flavored IIPA. I enjoy a Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale first, then a Maximus. Makes for a wonderfully hoppy evening.

Pours a clear copper dark gold color with huge creamy head. Aroma is citrus hops and spice and a bread malt note. Taste following the aroma well. The flavors are strong and solid. This is one amazing beer leaving solid malt rings all the way down to the bottom of my glass!! And a great price! Its safe to say its the best bang for the buck.
