It only took me 516 episodes to get around to reviewing an Avery brew - and what a brew! Chris Steltz of http://youtube.com/BeerGeekNation said this was the BEST beer of 2010, so it's one I've always wanted to try. I saw this beer when I was in N.J. a few weeks ago and knew I absolutely had to pick it up. You know I try not to get caught up on reputation that a beer has, but with an endorsement like that I certainly went into this review with some expectations. Would it live up to the hype? Let's see....

Season 14, Episode 42

BREWERY'S DESCRIPTION & INFORMATION:
Beer Style: Imperial India Pale Ale
Hop Variety: Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial and Chinook
Malt Variety: Two-row barley, caramel 120L, victory
OG: 1.090 ABV: 10.46% IBUs: 102
Color: Dark Amber
Availability: Seasonally produced from March through August. 22oz. bombers, 1/6BBL and 1/2BBL kegs.
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.
Be aware that The Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer. Welcome to his kingdom!
Food Pairing: Try The Maharaja with some Shrimp Cocktail and you'll find that the intense, "grapefruity" hop aroma is a perfect compliment.
