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%!

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2010
12-0z bottle. Poured a beautiful golden amber with a touch of cloudiness. Thick off-white head. Not billowing but persistent. Left plenty of lacing on the glass. Bold aroma carried pine and citrus. Rich malty flavor with notes of honey. Hops came on strong but the lingering maltiness balanced it well. LONG finish. The flavor lasted and lasted. Rich and sticky on the palate, too. This is an excellent and substantial brew that satisfies those that crave hoppy goodness yet want something creamy and substantial. Drinkable as far as a double goes! An excellent brew.

Nice looking beer. Aroma: caramel, pineapple and faint floral notes. Taste: fruity (grapefruit and mango) and caramel. Followed by nice pine resin and tingling notes of pineapple and herbs. Balanced. One of the better beers I have had lately.

8.2% A big piney west coast affair, Maximus is anything but subtle. Starts with a resiny pine nose with a bit of citrus and peach. Pours a light amber with a decent frothy pure white head. Flavor is sweet in the front, but bitterness rises quickly ending in a very bitter crescendo and sticky resin fade. All about the hops here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerRenter76 (1002) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
I wasnt very impressed by this one. It pours a mid amber body, almost no carbonation, head or lace. Aroma of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is similar with a slightly grapefruit tasting finish. I was expecting a few more hops and less malts for a IIPA, Overall it was o.k. but not outstanding. Originally rated on 1/21/09.

jmgreenuk (9150) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 10, 2017
Tap at the rsted lbar, Copenhagen. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is malt, tropical fruit, some alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a smooth rich fruity alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice and fruity with well hidden alcohol.

Kauge (1901) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle. BB 24.10.2017. First pour rather clear bright orange, second pour contains huge chunks of floaties. Head creamy white, rather big, nice lace. Lovely tropical fruit aroma, sweet, stone fruits and pineapple. Tastes sweet and bitter, very fresh and tropical, ripe, kinda like apricot, mango and pineapple, not very citric, more like resiny. Fine but crisp carbonation, oily texture, somewhat dryish finish. Very nice.

Rami Rami is drinking a Maximus by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Konstruktorska Business Center
Jeszcze sa cytrusy i tropiki, ale juz nielekko utlenienia, slodowa warstwa fajna, dluga spora goryczka, slodkawe, to chyba _bylo_ fajowe :(
Rami Rami: Chyba jednak nie ma sensu kupowac takich zza oceanu jesli sie nie ma wlasnego, szybkiego transportu... znaczy w sumie pije sie przyjemnie...
Rami Rami: Kurde, to mimo braku buchania chmielami jest ryli dobre, az se ciut ocenke podniose :)

Butelka 0,355l zakupiona na WFP, pite w domu. Kolor złoty, klarowny, wspaniała biała piana, mocna zostawiająca piękny ślad na szkle.W aromacie zioła, cytrusy cała gama aromatw. W smaku goryczka bardzo dobrze synchronizująca się z mocnymi aromatami. Piwo bardzo dobre, klasa światowa, super.

Golden amber with medium big, frothy head. Smells of flowers, tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), caramel, notes of roasted malt. Taste is intensly tropical, also pine (which i couldnt smell) becomes apparant, some complex notes of burnt log. It is a little big too sweet for my taste but it is balanced by some sourness and medium bitterness. Medium body and aftertaste. Overall a good west coast DIPA, it looks really nice too.
