Sampled from a 22oz growler during an IPA/DIPA tasting.
Poured a dark golden body with a white 2 1/2 finger head. Head retention was good.
Aroma was very pronounced with smells of grapefruit, orange & an perfumy piney smell.
Taste was definitely in favour of hop bitterness yet lots of balancing malt.
I really liked the mouthfeel this beer created. It was well balanced in its body. Not too thin yet not overwhelming.
Again the drinkability was similar to the mouthfeel in that it offerred loads of hops, was well matched by the maltiness but not too chewy.
Had this many times before & got to sample against some other similar DIPA's. It was my 2nd of 6 offerrings. A very drinkable DIPA.
Serving type: growler

I'd go through all the motions with you: A,S,T,M- but lets just go with O.
O- This is the best beer readily available. If you like IPA's go for it. If you don't, go for it. Its great. Its my go to, its my wifes go to. There is really nothing about this beer that isn't outstanding. To be honest, it ruins me- I now can't have anyother IPA without thinking it's lacking something... it's just not Maximus. Stone, Founders, even Lagunitas IPA, none of them can compare. I know its all personal preference but damn this is a damn good beer. Its Imperial, its got a citrus, its hoppy, its strong (beware it'll sneak up on you), and its incredibly delicious.
