sampled at gabf. yellow clear and not as enticing as most avery beers. slight nose of hop crisp fresh cut grass. slightly sweet malt backbone. need another 1 oz sample to see where this really ends up on the scale. im not sure of the in between their ipa and maharaja. both are outstanding and i feel this is less superior.

Tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer Octoberfest. Nice clear copper with an off white head. Malty backbone with a good amount of “C” hop coming through on the nose. Moutfeel is medium to light with moderate carbonation. Nice hop presence in the flavor prominent hop bitterness in the finish. I get the feeling this maybe some kind of “Maharaja light”.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2009 (Draught and Bottled versions) Pours a clear golden body with a medium creamy white head and descent lacing. Aroma of apricot, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, caramel, and light grass. Flavor of lemon syrup upfront and then warms up with grapefruit, apricot, pineapple, mango, herbs, and light soapiness (in some samples).

Clear and bright golden color with a thick head. Strong hop aroma and taste that you should expect from an IPA maybe not quite as much kick as I would like. The beer remains attractive as you drain the glass.
