I've seen this beer before on beer store shelvies like at the beer store in sepa but where always past thier prime. Not gonna spend big bucks on stale beer, so when I seen this at the Blue Dog I jumped on it.
Maharaja has flavor most DIPA's are bitter.
This brew has burnished orange amber color with a long lasting head due to it fine attenuation.
Very aromaatic with a hop bouquet thats fresh smelling with flavors of the tropics. the malt bill counter nicely also.
First sip is all hops with candied fruits like pineapple and apricots. One can slao taste some piney resin if you dig deep. There is also some malty biscuits in there too. Then along came Sally to punch you in the face with nuckles full of bitterness.
Drinks surprising smooth and dry. Bitter ending into the aftertaste.
An excellent beer but not for the faint of heart.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
