This is my go to daily drinker. If I was stuck on a desert island I'd want Maximus for the summers and Old Rasputin for the winter. Super yummy!

Pours a beautiful amber hue with frothy two finger head that holds nicely. Hop explosion that you expect from a 2X IPA. Grapefruit, pine and somewhat nutty taste. Nice earthy malt balance and very smooth mouthfeel. Lagunitas never disappoints.
