LAGUNITAS MAXIMUS IPA 6 PACK BOTTLE 12 OZ. Maximus IPA (ABV 8.2%) is said to be brewed to the brewery IPA standard recipe, although with a ton more hops. An India Pale Ale is an English-style ale with a large amounts of hops added to preserve and flavor and relatively high alcohol content. The hops used in this beer reflect the traditional style in that the flavor is bitter (boiling hops) and not as pronounced in the aroma (finishing hops). An excellent representation of the traditional IPA style. Key: The beers store.
