Lagunitas Maximus Double IPA
It has a dark, caramel-like color to it, in fact the aroma kinda follows that as well. There is sweetness in the malt character that is very appealing and balances well with the massive hop presence. The flavor is less balanced, but this is a DIPA – so it wasn’t much expected. Hops all over the place: piney, sweet and citrus flavors shine. The finish is clean, less bitter than I would expect. There’s something very clean about this beer.
For the price and availability here in Southern California- it’s hard to beat.
