This beer delivers a nice, two fingers of head that stays. It has a brilliant orange copper color. The aroma is weak, and of light cascade. The taste of Maximus is very round and light. I get bright ale fruit and alcohol nicely blended into the bitterness. There is a light, resinous hop finish. A touch of spice emerges with warmth.
This is a simple, lovely IPA with no harshness, stickyness, or hefty malt. It has a nice light, grippy, mouthfeel with a fizzy lift from the carbonation and this is about as drinkable as they come. I am very impressed with balance and drinkability achieved here but for a beer claiming double IPA, it just doesn't wiegh in. Theres no oomph. There's not really double anything as far as my mouth is concerned.
