4.18/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Pours a copperish color with a very good amount of frothy white head. Wonderful lacing that does not seem to dissipate. Aromas of cotton candy, bubblegum, citrus, peach, hops, grapefruit really get the mouth salivating.
Well what can I say. I've always been a big Avery fan and the Maharaja does not dissapoint. Not to say it's the best IPA I've tried but nonetheless it is extremely balanced, and easy to drink. This beer has great flavors that are pretty much what's in the nose. The only thing that seems lackluster about this brew is that for an IPA it could be a little hoppier. But I do think the IBU's in this brew make it what it is and that's one of the easiest, smoothest drinking IPA's I've tried to date.

Tipple's Brews - Gainesville - Release #18, 2014 - 1 pint, 6 oz. Bottle
A - pours a nice orange with two fingers of white bubble head that somewhat quickly dissipated. Carb levels coming up are standard. Nice clarity.
S - Nice citrus notes on nose, has nice earthy qualities to it. Hop presence is forward here. Mildly boozy here.
T - Start is nice and warming. Has a boozy quality there (expected for 10+%). Extremely smooth for being an Imperial. Has a very balance hop and malt profile. The end you get that booziness for sure, but between it is a nice caramel, sweet taste.
M - Medium bodied, quite drinkable. Carbonation is perfect. Smooth, very smooth, no real bite to speak of like you get w/ alot of Imperials.
O - Worth a try. Very nice qualities to it. At the price point, it may not be all that, but for what it is it does not dissapoint.
