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

Aromas heavy on the hops - grapefruit, pine, spruce. Some bread and sweetness from the malt. Color is a clear moderately light amber, a bit more toward the orange. Head is average size and offwhite. Taste is pretty bitter and just a touch sweet. Body is medium; texture slightly slightly oily; carbonation a bit on the lively side and the finish is long and bitter but with some malt sweetness also. Overall this is a pretty good IPA; the hops are strong with several aromas. There is also enough malt presence to provide reasonable balance.

Bottle. Orangey Amber in colour. Very Hoppy; piney oily resinous and spicy hops. Fruity; bitter citrus grapefruit and lemon. Malty backbone; sweet malts, caramel. Slightly salty. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance. Initially sweet then bitter hoppy citrus fruity throughout. Long dry hop bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable. (2010-10)

Fantastisk IPA, en dejlig rund smag, hvor man overhovedet kan smage alkoholen p 8,2 %

lownote (584) - Austin, Alabama, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Pours super clear gold with a finger of head that lasts forever. Lots of hop aroma. Floral, pine. Clean bitterness that doesnt linger. Very low malt flavor or sweetness perceived with the bitterness. Hop flavor is consistent with aroma. This is not something Id reach for often but is pretty good.

Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with large foamy off-white head, very faint citrus aroma, low carbonation, initially sweet taste followed by medium hoppy bitterness, thin body, long sticky sweet finish with residual bitterness. A bit too sweet.

Lagunitas Brewing is a favorite and I thought Maximus IPA was worth a try. Prescient thinking. My gosh, is this good. The 12 oz. bottle pours a dark gold with a thinnish head that does lace nicely nonetheless. The nose is of pine needles and blue sky. Just kidding on the last one. But the sky is the limit. Opening taste is lemon and orange with a close follow of sweetness. Involved. Aggressive without being over the top. Hoppy certainly and finishes with a rewarding bitter bite. Very nice.
