Avery Maharaja Imperial IPA now on tap as Gravity Head draws to a close.

The last untapped Gravity Head 2005 beer arrived yesterday morning and was pouring a few hours later.

As described by Avery Brewing Company:

"The Maharaja - Imperial IPA is royally welcomed to Colorado. Weighing in at a huge 112 ibs's, and 9.7% abv, The Maharaja is a maniacal display of hops and malts. This newest Avery Dictator completes the "Dictator Series" joining the likes of The Kaiser & The Czar. Be aware that the Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer."

Here's the Gravity Head story as of Friday, April 15.

Second kegs of De Dolle Dulle Teve ("Mad Bitch") and Fantome Saison have yet to be tapped and will go on line as the last Gravity Head kegs are consumed.
