12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of citrus rind/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel/rind, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good complexity and balance of bright hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. No code or date. Why are there so many with no code or date?

Pours moderately hazy, amber-copper, medium head, medium amount of fine carbonation. Sediment left a layer in the bottle; swirling would probably have left it very cloudy, and leaving some in the bottle would probably have left it pretty clear. Smell is malty, a little medicinal.

Taste is malty and somewhat medicinal. This isn't the right word, but I haven't found a good way to describe it.

A lot of the aroma and taste characteristic I'm starting to mentally associate with old IPAs, but without a bottle date, it's hard to tell. I may go seek out a bunch of old IPAs to see if this is a common characteristic. Maybe I'll age a Maximus and try it next to a fresh one.

Mouthfeel is thick. Overall, I'm underwhelmed.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, hops. Taste is hoppy up front, some fruits, a solid malt backbone, easy drinking. feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.
