Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-03-2005

Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, meaning “great”, and rajan, meaning “king”. Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley – fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence. Welcome to his kingdom!

The Maharaja is the second installment in our Dictator Series.

It's a good double ipa. But not as good as the scores it gets. Glad I was able to try it. Pretty balanced beer. I grabbed some off Flavors on it. Like olive on the nose?

A big boozy dipa. Bitter and malty which is kinda an odd combo. One bomber of this and you're on your way.
