Me: Want to try my home-made beer? (AHS double chocolate stout)
My uncle: Sure, I'll try it!
*takes a sip*
My uncle: That's beer!!! Though, it is like syrup ... that you'd put on food! It's good ... for home-made, but I wouldn't want to drink a whole bottle.
Me: Hmmm.... (thinking "Syrup? Are you kidding me? The final gravity is 1.012! No more beer for you!!!")

Wow, what a coincidence. At liquor store on my way home (to pick up a birthday brew for yours truly), and cashier says he has 2 Maharaja's left, and no more will be brewed until next year. Sold! I never heard of it before today, and yours is the second reference.

It looks good at least, and figured I'd try something other than the normal homebrew tonight. $7.99 for 22oz here in GA, but hey, birthdays are only once a year.

1.090 OG, 102 IBU's, 10.3% ABV..... it was a big beer. Lots of hop aroma, almost overpowering. I didn't taste much malt, due to all the hops. Earthy hop aroma, if I remember right. Maybe a little citrus.

22oz, as noted elsewhere, will put you in a good mood. I bought 2 other IPA's and didn't touch them last night.

I did look up some Maharaja clone recipes. Avery Brew Co sounds like they're pretty cool. They've given out their recipes in the past to whoever asked for them. I'll continue to support breweries like that. It's kinda like magicians who reveal the secrets of their tricks - it forces the other magicians to the next level in order to compete.

I've been sipping on my Irish Red for about a month now, but nobody else has been interested in trying them. Took a few to my brother's last night, finally got him to try one.

Brother (after sipping mine): Wow, that's really good. You've finally made something good.

Ah, brotherly love. He did go get his own, and I even left him a couple.

Sister in law tried it too and said, "Man, this is really good, but I can't drink a whole one: it's too strong a beer."

It's only about 4% ABV, so maybe the flavor is too strong? I don't know. These weren't stupid comments, they just struck me as funny.

7.99/ bomber is the same as 26/six pack. Or in terms of beer per dollars: for $26 I can get 72 oz. of Hopslam AND 48 oz of Double Trouble. Or I could get 66 oz of maharaja and have $2 left over. I know which one i'd pick every time.

I've all but stopped playing the limited release bomber game. Purposefully restricting supply in order to charge $7.99 bomber is a sucky move. My dollars go to support local small breweries instead.
