This fruity hop bomb has a regal lineage.
The newest addition to Avery’s year-round lineup, Raja Double IPA is loaded with juicy, exotic hops from the first whiff through the last sip. Intensely fruity in both aroma and flavor, Raja wows the senses with ripe peach, passion fruit and guava, thanks to Galaxy and Vic’s Secret hops from Australia. A firm malt backbone adds a layer of light toffee richness, perfectly balancing bitter tangerine and well-integrated alcohol. Allow the beer to warm up a bit and savor the resinous notes of freshly cut white pine in the finish, which lend a hint of London dry gin to this princely ale.
Serve in a snifter or pint glass at 40-45 F.
Suggested Food Pairings: The fine balance of tropical fruits and warm pine in Raja makes it the perfect beer for a wide range of cuisine. Enjoy it with Red Leister cheese, steamed lobster with herbed butter, or Honey Citrus Ricotta Cheesecake with Pine Nuts.
