4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow... a nice strong IIPA, big hop nose, light carbonation, somewhat cloudy tan color, with almost no head. The flavor is a nice balance of various hops running across the mouth, jumping down your throat, and having a party. This comes close to the Ruination in its ability to prevent tasting other beers. This is one I’m going to drink as much as I can while it’s available.
Pours a deep amber with a modest head that leaves only a thin lacing. Aroma is fruity with lots of citrus (mainly orange), pine and grass. Medium body, slick feel, soft/avg. carbonation. Taste starts off dry with lots of hop resin, and rounds off with zesty citrus and some caramel. Long and bitter finish, but it's still nicely balanced with the alcohol really well hidden.

Golden almost amber with a light white head. Grapefruit, caramel, hoppy and piney aroma. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter (not a lot of bitterness) with notes of grass, caramel and som hopps and with a liqourish finish.

Clear orange color with long lasting white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango. Taste is sweetish with bitter notes and long lasting bitterish finish. Well balanced and easy to drink. Very good ipa. pappabear (12) - Granbury, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Pours a Golden orange color with light head. Smells of citrus, and hops. Drinks super smooth with a slight bitter/citrus after taste. Can't believe it has an ABV of 8.2 %. Bought 1 in a mix six pack and I'm sad I didn't just buy 6 of these. My new favorite IPA.

Orange color beer with an huge frothy beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and a some floral notes. Flavor is citrus, biting pine and lots of grape fruit.. Medium to heavy palate. jinroh (2139) - ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2017
Pours nice golden, even a bit of amber Quite clear and not very carbonated - nor with its of foam. Aroma is nicely hoppy, some clean sugar feel to it, not stuffy but dry and slightly grassy. Well balanced, feels like a quite light beer to drink although it has some abv packed away. Tastes dry, balanced between sweet medium body and lots of hop bitterness. At the same time hops are not too bitter, not astringent but just about right. Quite nice one, feels as Lagunitas should feel like. santandrea (8) - - SEP 6, 2017 does not count
This beer has a strong hoppy taste with a slight fruit taste, it was slightly bitter. Bought a bottle and enjoyed with hotdog.

Decent stuff. Sweet and bitter combination. Sweet grape fruit im particular. SvanteL (630) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2017 Bärnstensfärgad med medelstort skum som fäster fint på glaskanterna och ligger kvar länge på ytan. I doften finns massor av torkad frukt, tallbarr och citrus och en liten kryddighet. Smaken är stor, rund och fyllig med skön fruktsötma, citrustoner, tallbarr och en balanserande lång efterbeska. Snarast en DIPA skulle jag vilja säga. Denna gillar jag, sötma och beska i en skön förening, stor och komplex smak. 171011 jämförd mot Nebuchadnezzar: Maximus är lite sötare både i doften och smaken, mer av aprikos och persika, t.o.m. lite övermogna päron, beska bäddas in lite mer i sötman.
