Maximus Ale

Lagunitas Brewing (Petaluma, CA)
"Kinda like our IPA on steroids. Flavor so hoppy it threatens to remove the enamel from one's teeth."

Big, bold, and chewy ... but then it is a double IPA so kinda what I expect.
Pours a clear amber gold with a creamy white head that hangs around a while.
Lots and lots of hoppiness with a slightly dry, citrusy orange bite at the finish.
First drink, the alcohol was very present but that seems to mellow as the beer sits a bit after opening.
Not a bad quaff ... not bad at all.

8.2% ABV, 72 IBU
