Avery Maharaja

CIMG5550

Who needs taste buds? Here’s a biggin’ from Avery that weighs in at over 10% ABV and 100 IBUs. 2-row, Caramel 120, and Victory malts try to balance out the Simcoe, Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook hops.

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 10.2% ABV. 102 IBUs. Colorado. Available December-March.

Nice coppery color with a fantastic head and lacing.

Definitely a hoppy nose, but it brings quite a bit of caramel and a toasted nuts. Sweetness really comes through on this one.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and low carbonation.

Toasted nuts and vanilla hit the palate with some lovely earthy and spicy notes. There is a tiny bit of heat, but still, pretty well contained. Long finish of vanilla and peanuts.

This is quite a tasty brew, but it will definitely sneak up on you. 90 points.
