California- American Double/Imperial IPA- 9.0% ABV. Balance is everything. We believe Maximus to be exactly that. Et tu? Brimming with pine, grapefruit, and berries on top of floral, spicy, dank notes, the exotic hop character leads to an assertive hoppy burst.

OVERVIEW

This style is an expression of American craft brewing ingenuity in which some brewers push the envelope of what beer can be. By doubling up, the American IPA brewers created a whole new style with an even bolder manifestation of hops and bitterness than in the first American-style India Pale Ales. Double/Imperial IPAs feature copious amounts of hops, typically American varieties, typically with plenty of malts and higher alcohol levels balancing the hop bitterness. Variations exist within the style, with some examples offering over-the-top hop bitterness (to the joy of many hop enthusiasts). Others are more balanced in hop bitterness and malt sweetness, and still others are complex, with multiple layers of fruity, hoppy, malty character that evolve as the beer warms in the glass and passes over the palate.

Lagunitas brews their year-round selections and seasonal offerings with what founder Tony Magee calls “a bizarre Old World tradition using only water, hops, yeast and malted barley.” Lagunitas’ brewers aim to craft beers that offer “richness and warmth” when the seasons turn cold, and “crispness and refreshment” in the spring and summer.


Their numerous year-round beers include Lagunitas Pils, Pale Ale, Censored (American Amber/Red Ale), A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale (Wheat Ale/IPA), Imperial Stout and a lineup of IPAs: Lagunitas IPA, Maximus IPA and Hop Stoopid Ale.


Lagunitas’ Petaluma brewery grew rapidly over the past decade, and its owners opened another brewery in Chicago, Magee’s home town, in 2014. Each facility is expected to make some 500,000 barrels of beer annually.
