Maximus Ale is an American Double IPA brewed by Lagunitas Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a bottle.
The ale pours a crystal-clear copper and is topped by an inch-thick, off-white head that recedes slowly. The reduction leaves behind a lovely lattice of sticky lace.
Bright aroma of citrus, hop resin, and a touch of pepper.
The palate offers a hoppy bite of grapefruit that crests atop a bready malt base. Finishes with a taste of alcohol, spiced with pepper, and an underlying caramel sweetness.
Its feel is crisp with a medium body and moderate carbonation.
The Maximus Ale is a big beer that’s so flavorful. And in spite of a high ABV, it’s just so crushable. Lots to like about this one.
