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%!

CanCrusher (1057) - Ilirska Bistrica, - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Clear, amber colour with medium off-white frothy head, that sits down slowly and became creamy with nice lacing. Strong, gorgeous hoppy aroma, also cactus, nettle, grass, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is heavy bitter with some liquor notices. Outstanding beer!

Kauge (1877) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle. BB 24.10.2017. First pour rather clear bright orange, second pour contains huge chunks of floaties. Head creamy white, rather big, nice lace. Lovely tropical fruit aroma, sweet, stone fruits and pineapple. Tastes sweet and bitter, very fresh and tropical, ripe, kinda like apricot, mango and pineapple, not very citric, more like resiny. Fine but crisp carbonation, oily texture, somewhat dryish finish. Very nice.

Rami Rami is drinking a Maximus by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Konstruktorska Business Center
Jeszcze sa cytrusy i tropiki, ale juz nielekko utlenienia, slodowa warstwa fajna, dluga spora goryczka, slodkawe, to chyba _bylo_ fajowe :(
Rami Rami: Chyba jednak nie ma sensu kupowac takich zza oceanu jesli sie nie ma wlasnego, szybkiego transportu... znaczy w sumie pije sie przyjemnie...
Rami Rami: Kurde, to mimo braku buchania chmielami jest ryli dobre, az se ciut ocenke podniose :)

Butelka 0,355l zakupiona na WFP, pite w domu. Kolor złoty, klarowny, wspaniała biała piana, mocna zostawiająca piękny ślad na szkle.W aromacie zioła, cytrusy cała gama aromatw. W smaku goryczka bardzo dobrze synchronizująca się z mocnymi aromatami. Piwo bardzo dobre, klasa światowa, super.

johannes777 (21) - Stockholm, - MAR 29, 2017
Golden amber with medium big, frothy head. Smells of flowers, tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), caramel, notes of roasted malt. Taste is intensly tropical, also pine (which i couldnt smell) becomes apparant, some complex notes of burnt log. It is a little big too sweet for my taste but it is balanced by some sourness and medium bitterness. Medium body and aftertaste. Overall a good west coast DIPA, it looks really nice too.

freekyp (2112) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2017
A big piney west coast affair, Maximus is anything but subtle. Starts with a resiny pine nose with a bit of citrus and peach. Pours a light amber with a decent frothy pure white head. Flavor is sweet in the front, but bitterness rises quickly ending in a very bitter crescendo and sticky resin fade. All about the hops here.

UNCCTF (575) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2017
Bottle. Golden color, small white head. Kinda sweet at first, but really piney hops in the back. Very bitter finish, a little alcohol-y but not overpowering. Pretty good.

BitchPls (801) - FINLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Semi clear beer with a brief white head. Quite fruity aroma with thick feel to it. Quite bland taste actually. No carbonation, sweetness yet very dull hops. Either this is not fresh or its just weak. I need more bitterness. Now its not balanced with alcohol.
