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%!

This is a beer site, and Im tired of talking about beer the way wine people talk about wine. Who cares how it smells, what color it is and all that jazz. Bottom Line, this beer Rocks! It is truly the gladiator of IPAs in my opinion... Maximus, Maximus, Maximus....Rose petals fall around the 6 pack, and the king...gives the thumbs up!

Pour a clear deep golden copper with an ample frothy off-white head. Some citursy hops come through in the aroma and, to a lesser degree, some pine. Nose is also a little sweet. Palate is slick and just a tad sticky. Medium carbonation. Nice hop bitterness and grapefruit hop flavor. Just enough malty sweetness to be balanced.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle... Poured a red/amber color with a foamy head that lasted with nice lacing. Malty, hoppy aroma, the usual for an IPA w/ the usual palate, mildy carbonated. Flavors of hops, caramel, alcohol, grainy and mild hops. Finishes with a lasting appeal.

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 cant shake the wood taste. Jeeez.

badgerben (5025) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Gold color with a thin head. Pretty decent citrus hop aroma. Definite citrus hop taste with ample pine hop. Strong dry malt. It reminded me of Bells Hopslam, but not as grand.
