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.

Bottle states February '07, well I popped this sucker open in July '08....

the beer itself looks like apple juice in my glass with a huge ideal frothy ivory colored head. the nose is very floral, floral hops and mellowed spicy hops. the taste is smoothe as hell! floral hops and mellowed spicy hops again. full bodied, low carbo, sweet finish. Definately gotta be number one on my list of IPAs!
