Avery Maharaja Imperial IPA

type: Imperial IPA
origin: Boulder, CO
price: $5/14oz

Holy crap Avery does it again. If you guys are ever in Colorado go to Avery, it's honestly one of my favorite breweries and at the end of the tour I heard they give you free pitchers of beer. I was excited about this relativley new IPA and was waiting to try it. So Friday at Livewire; another awesome beer bar (my home away from home), I noticed they had it and immediately ordered it. Only thing kinda lame is it came in a crown glass as seen, but I didn't really care it was just weird ( I know now why the beer came in a crown it is 10.24% alcohol, dang). The beer stenches of hops. Honestly I was about a foot away and could smell the delicious flavored hops. It has an initial hoppy taste, but is surprisingly smooth as can be with a beautiful malt finish. The beer has a nice white head and amber color and the malt and hop balance is unlike anything I have ever had before. I have never tasted an IPA like this and I am completely amazed. Only bad thing about this beer is it's so easy to drink you are likely to get messed up after 2 or 3 of these. Enough said, just go buy a 6 pack and then call me and I'll be over in 5. Oh One more thing it's great also that Samer is on the cover.
