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

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2005
Bottle. Copper colored with creamy white head dragging fine laze. Aroma is "typical American IPA": Cat pee, citrus etc. Flavor is malty with hints of apricot, strawberry. Finishes with intense sharp and pleasant bitterness. Gets a bit watery in the end, but nonetheless very good.

On cask at Toad. Brassy color with no head. Large but mellow floral hop aroma that carries into flavor. Sweet and thick malty base with flavor of shellac in aftertaste.

The hops sting your tongue, then then quickly disappear without lingering. Light and refreshing. Near perfect for hops without that gross mouth resin feel afterwards.

Jokestereo (364) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
Pours in a golden amber color with longlasting line of white head. The aroma consists of hop, malt, tropical fruits, honey and pinapple. The flavour is hoppy and sweet with citrus, tropical fruit and honey.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Pine and citrus aroma (not as much citrus as other offerings - kind of muffled.) The taste has the grapefruit rind. More rind then grapefruit so it has a bitter component fue to extra hops (I guess). Dry but well balanced not too hoppy for an IPA above average.

3.7
Brad (363) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Floral dank hops in the nose, very fruit and sweet smelling as well. Flavor had strong hop kick and was quite dry. Decent carbonation created a nice lively mouthfeel. Could use more balance.

4.1
ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pours a stunning amber/copper color. It has excellent lacing and the smallest bit of head retention. Tastes sweet and a bit of alcohol. Drinks very easy and doesn’t finish too hoppy, which is rare for a DIPA. A memorable beer.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JUN 24, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2003 great golden amber color with a very small head. Very hoppy with an exceptional after taste. Lagunitas does not make a bad beer and this is no exception. However i prefer thier standard india pale ale and not the Maximus.

3.3
Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2009
Bouteille de 600 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler et Agaguk. Bière de couleur caramel avec un très bon collet beige pale moyennement collant. Odeur d’épinettes, épices, oranges, sucre, miel et sel. Gout de très sucré, miel, caramel, sucre d’orge et un peu la poire.
