Avery Brewing Company "The Maharaja" Imperial IPA, Colorado (22oz)

SKU #1046619 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 The Maharaja Batch No. 13 is one serious beer with an intense nose of thick citrus oil, mango and peach accented by hints of nectarine pit and sweet resiny pine. It’s a constant back and forth between the rich caramel malt and toffee-like flavors and the strongly astringent hop core, but it all balances out into one complex beer. Lush and creamy in the mouth, the high alcohol is in balance and the finish is long and lingering. Overall, this is an intense, robust and masterfully crafted full-flavored beer that doesn’t go too far over the top.  (11/2011)

K&L Notes

Maharaja is derived from the Sanskrit words "mahat," meaning "great," and "rajan," meaning "king." In that vein, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. A limited release for summertime, this 10-plus percent ABV brew uses Simcoe, Centennial, Columbus and Chinook hops giving the beer a powerful, grapefruit-driven nose. Copius amounts of malted barley give the beer a dark hue and a malty palate.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
