Brazenly bitter. Dashingly dry-hopped. Raja is an audacious addition to our lengthy lineage of intrepid IPAs. Hops for all! All for hops!

Darwenus (1038) - Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2017
A fine double IPA, but I had Averys Maharaja first, and I cant help but think of this as sort of a session version of that delicious IPA. Raja pours cloudy yellow with average head and light carbonation. Like Maharaja, the aroma is maltier than I expect from a double IPA. But its a delicious aroma, with fruit and citrus tanginess behind the buttery richness. The flavor is rich and smooth and tasty, with the juicy IPA qualities working with, rather than drowning, the smooth malt. This beer doesnt benefit from the branding, which forces Avery fans to compare it to the far superior Maharaja. But it stands on its own, and its a fine beer.

Fashawn (594) - ITALY - MAR 9, 2017
Aroma poco fresco, pane appena cotto, agrumi e fiori darancia, marmellata. Poca intensit, pulizia non trascendentale. Giallo oro, viva, con una buona schiuma bianca. Linizio riporta il pane, intermezzato da una buona dose di agrumi, come se si mordesse una bella fetta darancia. Riminiscenza di limone, scorza di pompelmo, si difende bene per non essere pi freschissima. Sul finale tanto amaro vegetale ed aghi di pino, che non dispiacciono affatto. Ha una sua grazia e lesecuzione notevole per una IPA che ha ormai quattro mesi sulle spalle. Mouthfeel ottimo, birra che appiccica sul palato, con le giuste bollicine a rivitalizzare il palato. Non dispiace anche qui, e forse il mouthfeel la parte migliore. Davvero gustosa sebbene non fresca, promossa a pieni voti.

Luvystypotables (1824) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2017
I wish this beer tasted as good as it smells. The aroma is rich with notes of tropical fruit, caramel and citrus, pours a hazy gold color with a thin white head. Taste is a skunky, malt with notes of mineral hops and caramel. Medium body with a light bitter finish.
