Avery Brewing Company Raja Double IPA

“Rich and well blended. Dialed bitterness throughout that’s good for style. Lemon-heads candy, strong lemon/orange flavor. A fair chunk of that is the hops, but there’s something else going on. Moderate hops bitterness that melds with the tartness. There’s a splash of brighter esters and malt sweetness, but the funk from the nose is here, too. Sweet and juicy with lemon and orange and citrus notes. The hops are more favorable, less bitter, and balance well with the malt. Finishes with a slight bitterness and a nice sweetness.”
