Avery Maharaja Imperial IPA

Avery Brewing Company, Boulder, CO
Maharaja Imperial IPA
9.6%
bottle

Appears thick and sticky, but turns out to be a relatively tame brew. Pours the color of the shadowy part of the Avery logo-ribbon. The aroma (and bitterness) were not as aggressive or miraculous as other imperial IPAs, though the piney sweetness reminds you of the high-alcohol which would otherwise go undetected.  Wait, who am I kidding– there is no mistaking the fact that this beer is juiced, even though its flavors are not extravagant. The flashy artwork suggests a more daring beer than arrives in the glass.
