4.35/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

I poured this bomber into a snifter at cellar temperature.

It's a transparent golden amber with a dense, two-and-a-half-finger, off-white head.

This beer smells like tropical fruit! I think I pick up mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. A little bit of honey and hops, too. Very nice.

I must say, this is one of the sweeter DIPAs I've had. A prominent, robust, honey-like maltiness compliments delicious, lip-smacking, juicy hops. And this bitterness is toned down compared to most other DIPAs. It's kind of like the taste of hops WITHOUT intense bitterness. I do not descriminate beers for their IBUs, so I'm good with this. I might add that there's a pleasant, tart yeastiness in the finish.

The mouthfeel is thick and substantial with somewhat calm carbonation. Feels just right.

Like every other Lagunitas beer I've tried, Maximus didn't disappoint me. It's definitely a delicious and distinctive DIPA.
