    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"

    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.

    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..."

    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...

    I've seen it at Marketplace in East Brunswick, Joe Canal's Iselin, and my buddy said Stew Leonard's Paramus.

    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.
