Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.
