I've never had a brewer be so inconsistent for me and I'm starting to wonder if it's me but Avery Maharaja has been the most inconsistent beer I've ever tried. I'm going to review it based on the best I've had. But in reality if I had only had one of the bottles this could be a two or a four.five.
Cloudy amber-orange pour with very visible sediment and a decent fluffy thick head that held at about one ince for the whole glass. Laced decently but not evenly. One bottle tasted like an Ale even but for the most part this is a great very hops-driven and some citrus IPS true-and-through. On the nose it is identical and unremarkable for a double but great overall. Good solid carbonation and a meal sort of density to it. Very good beer if you get a good bottle but like other Avery's I've had it's been inconsistent for me.

4.58/5 rDev +8.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Location: Half Time Poughkeepsie
Glassware: Delirium Tremens Tulip
Appearance: Copper to Brown in color with a moderate head on an aggressive pour. The head is lightly browned as well.
Aromatics: The hops hit me as soon as the cap was removed from the bottle. There is a strong pineapple tropical fruit flavor so sweet that it almost smells honeyed. Some malt in the background.
Flavor: That bitterness keeps hitting. Along with a buttery fruit flavor. Some bready malts. I'm getting a lot of flavors from this beer. The mouthfeel is very smooth until the finish.
Finish: The finish keeps a lot of the hop residue along with a boat load of carbonation lingering.
Notes: Sealed in tin foil. Release number 18 2014
Serving type: bottle
