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.
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.
