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

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.

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 can’t shake the wood taste. Jeeez.

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.

Arayaga2 (2197) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Coppery color with off white head. Aroma is almost minimally hoppy for an IIPA, and the same goes for the flavor. Mediocre at best.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Pours a nice golden caramel amber. Nice soft malt and sweet citrus hops on the nose. Nice creamy mouthfeel with hints of citrus hops as well as a nice floral finishing bitterness.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2007
massive floral hops on this pale honey pour. Liquified flower shop in this unusally creamy beer. Hops not over the top like so many IPAs.

Ah, a very nice offering from Lagunitas, who are known for their specialties and their occasional duds. This is as advertised, a highly hopped IPA that has a good bite and lingering hop flavor on the palate. Not sure if I’d call it a double IPA, but it’s much better than their standard IPA, if not just for the fresh taste alone. Glad I picked up a 6’er.
