    I found some in Mass. I should've bought a bottle but Nugget Nectar and the last DFH 75 minute IPA were my choices instead.

    Yes sir! Saw it tonight as a matter of fact. I almost grabbed one, but wanted to see what the general consensus was on this one.

    Grab a couple. Maharaja is a splendid example of the DIPA style.

    Just asked about it at my go-to spot in Chicago today and they didn't have it yet. Off to Fischman's, I guess. Loves me that Maharaja!

    I saw a few bottles of Maharaja on the shelf in my local store. The only thing is that they were bottled in 2008. Has anyone had an older bottle of this? I didn't want to pick one up because I don't want to waste money on something that's definitely past it's prime. Also saw some Collaboration Not Litigation Ale on the shelf. Not sure how old it was, though.
