BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into pint glass.

A: Golden caramel in color with medium size white head. Some visible carbonation.

S: Pine & citrus hops, caramel malt. An overall sweet smell.

T: Taste follows nose, with orange pith flavors, a large malt sweetness, and a bit of tropical fruit and flowery elements.

M: Bitter dry tingly finish, a nice level of bitterness. Only a moderate alcohol presence, well-hidden for this ABV. Pleasantly well-carbonated.

O: This is one good, maybe not outstanding, but I would certainly pick up another bottle.
