Clear amber pour with a thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus with some bread. Citrus flavor upfront with some pine caramel, and bread. Superb lacing. Very nice. Rih1887 (16) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2016
Fantastisk IPA, en dejlig rund smag, hvor man overhovedet kan smage alkoholen på 8,2 %

Pours super clear gold with a finger of head that lasts forever. Lots of hop aroma. Floral, pine. Clean bitterness that doesn’t linger. Very low malt flavor or sweetness perceived with the bitterness. Hop flavor is consistent with aroma. This is not something I’d reach for often but is pretty good. trapped (3083) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 14, 2016
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. KevinReddirt (152) - Midland, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2016
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.

12 oz bottle Pours a burnt orange color with minimal off white head light lacing. Earthy aroma with a very hoppy taste crisp clean flavor. clayton49 (3) - Montreal, CANADA - DEC 1, 2016 does not count
Poured from the bottle. Clear brilliant orange, with medium off white head. Pleasant balanced aroma of hops - citrus, pine, pineapple - and caramel malted notes. Flavour really nice and balanced, tropical fruits and pine, with roasted sugar sweetness from the malt. Medium body, creamy smooth, but doesn’t linger. Bitterness is a slowly building one, and clean, that compliments the sweetness and alcohol so well that it becomes dangerously crushable at 8.2%. Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - NOV 27, 2016
Bottle, 355 ml from Beergium. Shared with JFK10000. Pours clear orange with medium off-white head. Hoppy, citrus, grassy, malty, sweet, moderate bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. Guess not the freshest one since I expected more hops. Dandm (125) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2016
Weak smell. Very floral, funky and earthy aromas. Throat lozenge. Doughy. Very nice hazy gold colour, lots of bubbles. Well balanced high bitterness with some sweetness. Thick mouthfeel. Bitter finish.
Dad likes it. felsenpils (172) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 21, 2016
12 oz, bottle. Pours a hazy deep golden color with an off-white head. The aroma is dominated by West Coast hops. The flavor is as well with a perceptible hop bitterness and lots of hop oil. The malt body is thick and tastes like crystal/caramel malts. I am not a fan of American IPA´s, but I think that this is a very good one and those who do like this style will not be disappointed. It also delivers quite a kick at 8.2% ABV. The label lists the IBU´s at 72.41 which is way too exact. I have worked in the laboratory of a major brewery and can tell you that to keep the IBU´s to 72 is hard enough much less getting it exactly to two decimals.
