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.

4.67/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Deep orange with a large head.

Smell: Big grapefruit aroma.

Taste: Starts sweet but then a big kick of citrusy hops. However, the malts hold their ground so this isn't brutally bitter.

Mouthfeel: Pleasant sweet and hop aftertaste.

Drinkability: It's pretty easy to burn through a bomber of this in a hurry since it's so good.

I haven't had a lot of this since it's somewhat rare in the Twin Cities, but it is really an excellent DIPA. If it was in 12oz bottles and more available this would be in my top five. Highly recommended!

Delicious, and what a wonderful smell!! It poured a clear dark orange colour with a thick, snow white fluffy head that dissolved in approximately 20 secondes into a thick ring about the edges of the glass. The smell was tremendous!! Big grapefruit - citrus smell that contacted my nose before I even brought the glass up to my face to smell it. The taste is packed with citrus like hops, as well, with the grapefruit being quite pronounced and right up front. It finished with a lovely hop biterness and is very refreshing. Mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated to a level condusive to the style. This is everything I hoped it would be and more, quite honestly. Great Divide's Hercules was my favourite of the style until about 6 minutes ago!! Anyone who fancies that, should definitely try this!! Smashing!!

Blessed Be

Ah yes! The label on mine says, "Bottled in Feb. of 2006. Batch No.3" 9.9% alc/vol (versus the 9.7 as stated here).

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a pint glass: Label states that it was bottled in May 2008, batch #8.

P: Poured a light golden-amber color from the bottle with a nice cascading effect. Slightly hazy as it sits in the glass, displaying a beautiful deep amber color that is glimmering with tangerine highlights. The icing on this liquid cake is a sturdy, two-fingered off-white head that is made up of small to medium-sized bubbles. Retention is quite good, as it finally sinks down to seal the top with an even-layered cap of foam. Leaves fat patches of spider-webbed lacing all down the glass. Just beautiful!

A: Big whiffs will register a generous amount of toasted malts, clean barley, citrusy-sweet hops that resemble orange peels, a twist of lemon, and some clementines to boot. Smells yummy!

T: ...Oh baby, this is absolutely delicious! Hits the palate with a pungent, yet very pleasing, sourness that is quite nicely balanced out with a sturdy-enough malt backbone that provides the ying to the yang. Clean and tight undertones of barley pop up about halfway through, while the citric notes of freshly-picked Valencia oranges weave in and out very gracefully. The twangy hops in the semi-dry finish provides a nice tingling sensation on the back of the tongue, while leaving a slight hop oil residue behind. There is an ever-so-slight alcoholic spice that cuts through towards the back-end, but for a 10.21% ABV Imperial IPA, it is so extremely well-masked that you hardly even notice it. It's mellow, yet fierce at the same time. This is truly a masterpiece to behold!

M: The mouthfeel to the Maharaja is superb. It's just a smidgeon below being full-bodied. Slightly chewy, mouth-coating, velvety smooth, crisp, and perfectly carbonated. Very well-done!

D: Oh, hell yeah! I could drink this stuff all day and night, baby. It's so damn tasty, so unbelievably silky smooth, and such a pleasure to indulge in. Seriously, where's the alcohol here?

Notes: This is one kick-ass Imperial IPA! The Maharaja (interpreted to mean "Great King") lives up to every expectation that its moniker implies. This is definitely the best Imperial IPA I've had to date. From the outset, the flavor just explodes on the tongue, releasing a shockwave of subtle malted barley, in-your-face citric hops, and a pungent kick that works just perfectly. Definitely a must-try for any IPA lover! What a great way to round out Turkey Day! Wish I had another...

22 oz. bomber into a tulip.

Pours a bright golden/orange/amber brew with a good depth to it's hue. A hearty head floats atop, tan in color, and leaves some serious lacing behind.

The aroma is utterly inviting: foresty, resinous, cannibinoid hops dazzle the nose while subsidiary notes of pineapple, banana, mango, carmel, and cane sugar join in.

This beer packs a serious bite. Gone are the fruity notes in the aroma, making way for a plethora of hops that dominate the palate. Carmel malts balance the finish, but the main show belongs to the hop assault. The carbonation level is perfect, and the mouthfeel is slightly viscous, crisp, and leaves a bitter punch down the back of the throat that you won't soon forget. Wow, I almost completed writing review without a single mention of the alcohol. It's nearly non-existant from the taste, but (since I'm mentioning it now) it makes its presence known within the first half-dozen ounces. Bottom line: I love this beer. Easy to drink, complex, tasty, and for hop-heads, it's an absolute must.

Finally got my hands on the new batch. Batch 13 March 2011. Poured from bomber to pint glass.

A - The beer pours a nearly clear orange amber color with a nice 2 finger slightly off-white head. Great retention and lacing throughout.

S - A very good aroma with tons of fruity character: guava, tropical fruit, mango, lemon, orange, grapefruit. The aroma hides the alcohol fairly well though for such a big brew it doesn't completely mask it.

T - The bitterness of the earthy, piney, fruity hop character hits the palette first. A nice sweet biscuit/bready malt character follows and blends nicely with the hops. Very well balanced. Hides the alcohol well, though the heat is detectable. Very good.

M - Moderate carbonation, almost creamy in its thickness. Upper end of medium bodied.

O - This is a great brew! I found this batch to be a bit heavy in the booze but not so much to deter from the overall excellence. I really enjoyed the previous batch as well. One of the best DIPAs in my opinion.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip. 2014 Vintage. Date code from bottle translates to 03/13/2014. Review date: 04/26/2014.

Appearance: Pours a dark copper color with two fingers worth of an off-white head. Very clear. Moderate amount of carbonation rising. Alcohol legs present on the glass.

Smell: Lots of sweet fruit aromas, stone fruits, tropical fruits, some sweet citrus. Underlying notes of pine. Caramel and bready malts contribute as well. Aroma is balanced.

Taste: Bitterness strikes up front, lightly fading into the hop characteristics, the citrus and pine. More of the sweetness comes out along the tongue. Mixing ripe stone fruit flavors and finishing with the caramel sweetness. Sweetness transitions into the aftertaste, finishing slightly dry and sticky with resinous pine.

Mouthfeel: Medium body on this one carries the flavor profile well. Feels very resinous on the tongue and finishes sticky as the aftertaste lingers. Very little alcohol presence considering the ABV.

Overall: This is an excellent IIPA. A little on the maltier side, so if that is not to your tastes, you may not favor it as much. However, this has been a favorite of mine, and one I look forward to picking up every Spring. Easy to find when it's released if you can get Avery in your area. Price is somewhat reasonable for a bomber at $7.99 in my area. Would definitely recommend seeking this one out.

Avery usually delivers a great product and this beer did not disappoint! It was served in a 12 ounce tulip glass and the copper color immediately captured my attention! The thick 1.5 finger foam seemed to be just floating on top leaving a nice lingering sticky lacing on the glass. The bouquet was sweet with mild maltiness and caramel with bitter orange peel. The first sip totally enveloped my tongue like a warm comforter would my body in a cold winter day! The flavors of star fruit, grapefruit and blood orange with hints of mango are unmistakable and delightful with the blood orange and grapefruit lingering long after the sip is gone! This beer left me wanting more because of how delicious it is but be careful, at 10.4 ABV this beer will sit you down in a hurry! This is certainly one of those powerhouse beers you must take your time with to enjoy! Avery has hit it out of the park with this one! If you are a fan of the Troeg's Nugget Nectar then you will like this beer! It's like the Nugget Nectar on steroids! Well done Avery and thanks to the West Reading Tavern in West Reading, PA for serving it on tap!

1.085 OG, 9.78% ABV, 2007 vintage, relatively fresh.

A: Amber-orange with a fluffy, off-white head; great retention & lacing.

S: Big hop nose (Grapefruit, pine, grass and apricots), with hints of tropical fruit and a slight sulphery, mineral aroma.

T: Plenty of hop flavour (Pine, grapefruit, apricot & a little grassy spice). At over 100 IBU's, it's not harsh at all (must be the nobel, low cohumulone hops). Slight cotton-candy fruity esters from the yeast, with a little toffee sweetness and biscuity malt in the background. Alcohol is EXTREMELY well-hidden under all of these flavours! I love it. It really works well, but the magnum is a little untraditional for an American DIPA.

M: Full body is smooth and creamy, with a slight acidic finish.

D: Incredible considering its strength!

World class.

Reviewed from notes taken on Saturday September 1, 2007.

I Chose this beer for my 100th review. A beer fit for a king, would certainly be worthy for a milestone such as this. I dedicate this review to THE REAL Michael Jackson, who sadly passed away just days before i tried this.

Pours amber with a frothy off white head, heavy carbonation, Excellent head retention. There was still foam & lacing left by the time i finished the glass! Heavy pine aroma with some cloying malt sweetness. A Big DIPA? I expected it to be more in my face, but this was nice. Taste? OMG! Very strong and agressive, flowery hops, but seems to be backed up by a healthy does of malt. Very well balanced for a DIPA. Just the right dose of resiny sweetness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy, full of body, but less sticky than i would've expected. As far as drinkability is concerned, Maharaja goes down far smoother and easier than others i've tried in this style. I hope i don't have trouble finding more of this locally. I recieved it via the Summer Sipper 2007 BIF.

RIP Michael Jackson March 27, 1942 - August 30, 2007

Appearance: Poured from a 22oz bomber bottle into a slightly chilled pint glass. Beautiful light amber head, 2-3" thick from an agressive pour. Medium amber in color and cloudy, you can tell this is going to be a substantial beer! Lacing that lasts and lasts in layers as the beer level drops.

Nose: Citrus, pine, sweet malty-ness, BOOM! HOPS! Very crisp and sharp. Pungent and prominent IPA.

Taste: HOPS assault, sharp and bitter, immediately followed by an awesome malt smoothness that is mildly sweet and really smooths out the flavor!The after taste is piney and crisp, still mildly sweet and hoppy all at the same time. My tastebuds are excited! A very surprising IPA, I was expecting more bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium thick, leaves a nice coating on the tongue and cheeks. Still can "feel" the hops and malts distinct from each other but combined to make it unique.

Drinkability: VERY much so! At 10.4% abv, it is quite well hidden, but you can feel the warmness from it. Very pungent and exciting! This is what I would call a strong IPA, but for a non-experienced IPA drinker, it is rather well done. Most IPA's hit me too hard, this doesn't, but leaves me knowing it's a "hot" IPA. The malts that Avery brags about are very smooth and powerful to combat the bitter/strong hops.

Overall, I give this a PHAT 9 of 10. Very surprised at the wonderful compliment of flavors.

Batch 7, Bottled Feb. of 2008. ABV listed as 10.54% on this one.

Pours a very nice copperish color. There's some cloudiness, but it could be from the temp. of the beer. Clears as it warms. Two finger head, fairly persistent.

Smells sweet. Very sweet. Some honey hides behind these big citrusy hop oils. This is the way I love my DIPA's to smell.

Taste follows nose, with a bit more focus on the bite of the hops. I can't imagine what this is like fresh. Some caramel sweetness at the back. Ends in that honeyesque sweetness.

A bit slick on the tongue, nice mouthfeel overall. Good weight. very nice.

Very drinkable for a 10.5%. Had zero alcohol bite to it. Fantastic DIPA overall.

This is a wonderful beer!

Taste: Malt upfront, which leads into tropical fruit, and grapefruit, hoppiness. The aftertaste is quite pleasant...as long as you love hops! The alcohol is well hidden but the little that comes through is very enjoyable and enhances the flavor.

Overall: Definitely up there with other world class double IPAs.

This is a fantastic DIPA. Looks gorgeous out of the glass. I do wish it had just a bit more bite or bitterness from the hops but the malt is all around fantastic. I think it's only a few weeks old - I'd think that's fresh enough but maybe some of the brighter notes already faded. Still, great DIPA I'd definitely have again. It's a lot less expensive than most of their offerings which is nice too.

Pours a murky blood-orange color. No head when it came my way, and it can't be determined whether or not this is due to bartender's pour. Love the color, tho.
I can smell this one two feet away; very bright and sweet with fruity malt goodness. Quite unique; no other beer, especially IPA, smells like this.
Also sweet upfront. Very juicy, as in orange, mango and grapefruit. Honey and brown sugar notes also factor into the sweetness. Nice dropkick of piney hops to balance out the malts.
Creamy and admittedly heavy in the mouth.
This is a wonderfully complex beer. Much more going on than the standard floral/grapefruit in many offerings of the style. Be careful, the alcohol is well-hidden in this one, and hits you hard if you're not careful.

A: Slightly hazy amber-gold, head that retains fairly well. S: I've had a lot of double IPA's, and this is really outstanding. Hops that slap you in the face offset by a wonderful apricot-citrus note that really balances well. T: The balance continues, a nice rich malt backbone painted thickly over with hops. The fruitiness is what really makes this beer interesting, the grapefruit/pine/apricot that permeates the whole experience. M: Thick and chewy, moderate carbonation. D: I could drink this all night long. A really outstanding beer.

Don't know if they "upped" the alcohol on the Maharaja but the label on this one readys 10.21% ABV.

22 oz. bomber purchased for a high $10.99 price tag. I hadn't seen this one around for a while so I quickly snatched it up and could not wait to taste the contents of the bottle...

Poured into a tulip...

A- Dark ruby/amber orange color. Would have liked more head on this one, but still, the Maharaja yielded a nice 2 finger cream colored head. Some lacing here as well, but quickly dissipated.

S- Lots of malts in the nose. Sweet like candy with mostly caramel dominating. Malts are there, but I got malt and alcohol.

T- No hint of alcohol in the taste AT ALL. Well-balanced imperial here with a massive hop punch. Simcoe and citrus hops come through with a bang, followed by a really sweet and smooth malty presence. This will surely satisfy the hop loves palate for sure.

M- Rich and sticky imperial IPA here. Just how I like em. This one will fill you up quickly, beware.

D- ABV creeping up as we speak. Amazingly drinkable imperial IPA here, one of the best I have ever had. Grab a few bombers if you see em. I am sure I can do better than a $10.99 price tag though, well worth it for my first experience though.

CHEERS!

Batch 14 June 2011. Poured into a tulip.

Appearance. Deep amber in color with a copper tint. Pours with 3 fingers of thick creamy tan head. This barely dissipates leaving thick meringue like peaks where it does.

Smell. Lots of hop, of course, the most predominant of which are grassy and piney. There is definitely some nice sweetness to the nose as well. In the background there is a nice spice that is hard to define.

Taste. Starts with a sharp resinous bitterness that lingers for a bit. This slowly transitions into an intensely sweet and piney flavor which really just bombards the palate. There is a building presence of fruit during this burst that is reminiscent of both grapefruit and pineapple. Bitterness builds to a very high level, but is accompanied and balanced by a hard candy-like sweetness. This transitions nicely into a dry bitter finish with lingering grapefruit notes.

Mouthfeel. Fairly heavy in body for this type of beer with a moderate amount of carbonation.

One of the most complex dIPAs I've ever had. So many layers or waves of flavor that it takes a while to sift through. An intense and enjoyable drinking experience.

Avery's original IPA's was one of my all-time favorite depictions of the style, so I was extremely eager to try their Imperial... Looked high and low for this seasonal release and finally found it for $7.99 at Super Saver in Somerville...
"Bottled In May 2007 - Batch 6" on the green front logo sticker...
Beautiful light-brown, copper, mahogany appearance with a fairly large foamy head and slight sediment visible at the bottom of the bottle and glass...
Smell is all hops and very fruity, with a strong suggestion especially of bittersweet grapefruit... Judging from the aroma, I knew I was in for a treat...
Taste was top-of-the line for an Imperial IPA, bursting with fresh hop, lime, citrus, floral, and of course, grapefruit flavor... Very noticeable citrus presence delineates this sample from other representations of the style... This one is certainly much more sweet than bitter, with a pleasant, creamy, rich mouthfeel and perilously drinkable without the slightest hint of the 9.7% ABV...
Another winner from Avery...
Definitely recommended...

During my pilgrimage to Half Time in Poughkeepsie, NY I mentioned to a few of the staff that I am a hophead. They immediately dragged me over to this beer and said I had to try it. WOW!!! A great IPA. Cloudy amber color, huge slightly off-white head that hangs in there at about 1/2 inch. Lacing is thick sheets. Aroma stands out as good as Celebration Ale. Hops, grapefruit and spiciness. I could inhale the whole 22 oz through the nose. The taste is exceptional, easily as good as Celebration Ale...hoppy....spicy... grapefruit and incredibly smooth. No hint of the 9.7 abv. Rich mouthfeel and highly drinkable. If I found this on tap somewhere, I would call this a session beer and deal with the after effects!!! This is a great beer for hopheads.

M-Tart and bitter bite, just coats the inside of the mouth with hoppiness.

Pours a light amber gold with a modest creamy head leaving curtains of lacing on the glass.

Very fresh aromas of malt, hops, vanilla, sugar, mixed fruit.

Sweet malty taste with a fruit salad of banana, strawberries, kiwi and finishing with pronounced hop bitterness. The sweetness upfront and then an intense, tongue burning and numbing concentrated red grapefruit bitterness in the finish gives the palate a roller-coaster ride.

Medium body, somewhat creamy, with a refreshing level of carbonation.

There is a lot to like in this beer. I am liking it since my favorite style is Belgian IPA. The fruit flavors are here along with the highly concentrated hop bitters. On my list of the very best Imperial IPAs. Drink in moderation!

I've been looking forward to sampling this beer ever since NC lifted the cap and I eagerly snatched up several bottles as soon as they appeared on the shelves. This brew poured a beautiful bright orange amber hue into my glass with a half inch head that left sticky lacing along the sides. Aroma was an incredible fusion of pungent, grassy hops, grapefruit and apricots in the nose. Taste was a hop lovers wet dream, very hoppy, fruity and with notes of peaches, apricots and grapefruit on the tongue. This beer had a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel and was easy drinking for it's strength. The 9.9% abv stated on the label is not noticeable. I polished off two 22oz bottles in just a couple of hours. This is by far one of the tastiest beers that I have ever had and gives any other DIPA a run for it's money.

Batch No. 13 Mar. 2011
A- Really nice looking golden orange amber; finger of off white head; Tiny bubbles and very clear

S- Huge citrus and pine notes; Malt backbone comes through to balance the smell and make it richer; Huge smelling beer

T- This is really complex and big; Don't even really taste the alcohol, maybe a little at the end; Very very bitter but smooth at the same time; Taste pine and lemon and orange peel; Sweet at the end. Super good

M- A little syrupy when first drinking it but it smooths out; Dry finish, creamy, and no alcohol burn

A- I thought this one was going to taste very classic to IIPA's but it sort of did its own thing a little. Almost too much going on to describe but it all blends for one of the best beers I have ever had.
