Have to agree with the above about Pliny. It is a very good IIPA, it's their very limited distribution that feeds the hype.
@325kev, thanks. I think it depends on the year. I had the Avery Maharaja about 3 years ago and thought it was gross, had this funky citrusy blah taste. Turned me off from Avery. I tried the 2011 Maharaja after it was recommended by more than one person and surprisingly it was pretty good. Someone in this thread said something similar about 2010 and 2011 Sam Adams Infinium. I had 2010 infinium and had a "that's it?" moment.
