  1. It's out in MA. Had to pass on it as a single bomber costs the same as a 4pak of Private Rye.

    Bought it in Boston about 2 weeks ago. $10/bomber, fucking marvelous! Does anyone know if there's a bottling date on it? All I could find was "Batch 17, 2013"
  3. Yes, it's in black ink around the bottle neck area. Example: 10184B6, 10 = the first one or two digits of the top line indicate the year; 9 is 2009, 10 is 2010, etc… 184 = Julian date, B6 = the tank it was brewed in.

    Where have you seen it in Jersey? I'm looking to pick up a bottle of this, tickers gotta tick.
  15. Ahhh...Maharaja. My first introduction to IPAs. I took a sip & thought "WTF!? Grapefruit juice in beer!?" On my second sip I thought, "Well, it's actually not all that bad..."
  16. Its out in VA. Regret not buying a bottle last weekend.

    It's been on shelves in Massachusetts for at least a couple of weeks.
  20. I had my first one a few days ago. Pretty tasty for the money - $7 a bomber. Not the best IPA I've had lately though.

    I won't lie, I didn't really know how I felt about the Maharajah. The nose is great, but the aftertaste leaves something to be desired. Then I cracked a Heady Topper and was certain I didn't think Maharajah was so great...

    If I ever found it on draft in Chicago I would bleed that ked dry and end up in the hospital!

    Grabbed a bottle in St Louis yesterday. 8 bucks I think...I hear its a great beer, probably drink it next week sometime.
  29. This has been hanging around Charlotte, NC bottle shops for over a month. Haven't had any yet, and probably won't. I don't get the hype with this beer. It's a very average IIPA in my opinion. MUCH better options other there.. Still love Avery though.
