4.08/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

So I'm going to re-review this one....I can clearly tell that my previous review was of an old bottle. This is the 2011 version that I had on tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. From a snifter.

Appearance: Maharaja comes out a burnt orange color with one finger of pure white head. Both lacing and retention are very good. Outstanding looking beer. The head really sticks around very nicely throughout the duration that the beer lasts.

Smell: I get a big citrus component as well as a caramel malt sweetness that is nice without being too malty. Citrusy and piney hops on back end.

Taste: Again the caramel malt sweetness up front, followed by a great, strong citrus component. Piney hops, followed by quite a bit of alcohol on the back end. The alcohol really shows on the finish, which is what prevents this one from grading out higher.

Mouthfeel/Overall: The feel on this beer is outstanding. Between light and medium bodied, nice fine carbonation. This beer is very near to creamy, which I don't get very often in this style. Overall, very good DIPA. A touch too much alcohol on the palate hurts it somewhat, but it is still very good.

Serving type: on-tap
