Avery Brewing Beer, Imperial India Pale Ale, The Maharaja
Dictator series. Supremely limited. Release No. 26 August 2015. Est. 1993. 102 IBUs. Maharaja is derived from the Sanskrit mahat, great, and rajan, king. Much like its namesake, this Imperial IPA is regal, intense, fierce and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority with a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent, along with an insane quantity of malted barley, fashioning a royal scarlet hue and an exquisite malt essence. Welcome to his kingdom! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, hops and yeast. 10.2% alc/vol. Brewed and bottled by Avery Brewing Co. Boulder, Colorado.
