look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Amber color with a generous-sized, foamy light beige head that slowly faded.

Smell: Piney hop aromas dominate.

Taste:The pine aromas carry over to the taste. The finish ends fairly dry with some mild pine notes.

Mouth-feel: Medium body with a medium level of carbonation.

Overall: Good IPA but I didn't find it that much different from the standard Lagunitas IPA.

12oz bottle into a pint glass

A-golden dark yellow, almost pale yellow with a thin white suttle head.

S-citrus fruits, pine and loads of sweet almost clementine.

T- Hop bite on the tongue, very slight alcohol forward and aftertaste. Mildy sweet malt profile with tastes of biscuit and slight spice. Very subtle DIPA and extremely drinkable.

M-very light on the palate and great bitterness that lingers with a very mild alcohol taste. Very good in my opinion, a well-balanced DIPA.

Again another great showing of an IPA by Lagunitas. They have really grown on me, and this being my first Maximus I definitely would drink it again. It's not the smack-your-face hop attack that I like when really wanting a DIPA, but it's one where you can easily have 2 or 3 and really feel great about life!
