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

Botte @Lagunitas tasting at Artisan Wine Depot. Pours clear light amber with a small white head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is surprisingly malty with forward notes of caramel and bread with a pine/citrus backing. Flavor is about the same, medium to quite sweet, light to medium bitter and a bit grassy on the finish. Way to malty for me.

Light orange pour. Similar to the lagunitas IPA just with everything way more in your face. Not saying it as s bad thing though. Very enjoyable

Copenhagen 25/7 2017. 35,5 cl bottle from Meny. Just says "Maximus" on the label with Hops slowly entangling the corners on the label. Pours clear golden copper yellow with white head. Head settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is rich and strong. Sweet exotic fruit with a sweet boozy fermented touch. More subdued citric notes. Almost sugary intensity. Soft carbonation and sluggish palate. Flavor is fairly sweet but balanced by distinct bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter with semi dry finish. There is no boozy or metallic alcohol here - but none the less you are not in doubt that this beer has a healthy ABV.

Nonshaugen (622) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2017
355 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden amber, medium off-white head, low carbonation. Aroma is malty with tropical hop notes. Mouthfeel is very hoppy and bitter, medium body. Taste is "dark", tropical and hoppy. Nice balance between sweetness and bitterness.

Tap at Stouts. Amber with thin white head. Tangerine, pineapple, apple peels, slight alcohol and malt aromas. Big fruity sweetness with a moderate bitterness. Medium body with a slightly sticky feel.

One of my favorite IPAs- deep rich taste - with hints of yummy - takes normal Lagunitas citrus notes and goes BOOM! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bärnstensfärgad med fint vitt skum. Doftar fräscht av citrus och lite tallkåda. Smaken fyllig och besk. Eftersmaken lång och humlig (efter 3 snapsar).
