COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, - "great" and rajan - "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. This newest Avery Dictator completes the "Dictator Series" joining the likes of The Kaiser & The Czar. Be aware that The Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer. Welcome to his kingdom!

Editor’s Note: the 2007 version was 9.78%.
2014 - 10.2%

Lots of hay, grass, lemongrass, a lil funk...the abv definitely goes unnoticed...not a whole lot of citrus, which is a plus for me. Creamy mouthfeel with a bitter background. Solid for sure.

Nice mix of sour (seems like an Avery feature), bitter and sour, seems a bit spiced, a bit of bread, aftertaste does not linger obnoxiously. oily, good

3.8
klm1 (1918) - Bled/SF, - OCT 30, 2017
Pours hazy amberish golden with stable foamy beige head. Aroma: intense hop character, supported by malt backbone. Flavor follows aroma: intense citrusy, fruity hop character, hint of oily pine, resinous notes, tangerine and orange marmelade, supported by biscuity, caramel like malt backbone. Hop bitterness is high. Body is full, almost syrupy, texture smooth, carbonation moderate to medium. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but after few minutes knocks you down.
