12oz bottle poured into pint glass oct15 2009
A clear copper in color with good carbonation and a decent thumbs width of head that left some lace. head settles as a 1/4in film but it left the most lace at the top of the glass
S tangerine and lots of hops mix well with a little pine and caramel
T I like this beer because I get hops before grapefruit unlike many big IPAs I've been drinking lately. I do taste pine, citrus and some caramel, but straight hops is what I love about this beer
M the carbonation gives it a creamy feel and it coats my mouth a little. this beer has some bite and you can still taste it 30 minuets after drinking it so you know you had a real beer
D oh so very easy for the strength, no complaints here I don't like the price of this one here in Alberta but its almost worth the 20$ a 6pack
Its a coin flip between this at 20$ for 6 or the 90minute from dogfish head at 17$ for a 4 pack. tonight Maximus is worth every penny for killing my hop craving

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.
