COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We the Brewers of Avery Brewing Company, in order to form a more perfect ale, require a new leadership that can liberate us from our quagmires in foreign lands; embrace environmentally sound energy alternatives to imported oil; heal our ailing health care system; free us from tyrannical debt and resurrect the collapsing dollar. We hereby pledge to provide him or her with an ample amount of our Presidential Pale Ale to support in the struggle for the aforementioned goals! Hail to the New Chief!

Not an "Imperial" pale ale, this is a democracy. Itís Presidential! Take the all-American pale ale, a bipartisan blend of malt and hops, increase to both Avery Brewing standards, and then, of course, dry hop the result with that most quintessential of American hops, Cascades, and you get this... Ale to the Chief. A brew worthy of the Oval Office! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, hops and yeast.

Pours amber in color with thick creamy head. Aroma is very pleasant of HOPS, hops and more Hops (umm mm). Flavor is good too; with notes of Hops (of course), malts, citrus, caramel and pine. A very good beer.

650ml bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Shared with bananabi11. Copper pour with no head. Thick citrus and pine. Overripe fruits. Overlayered and super dry hopped, unfortunately not too well blended or too smooth. Medium to full bodied, with some alcohol presence. Finishes fruity bittersweet. 13.7

So, Iím looking at the comments from everyone else and wondering if this was a bad bottle... because Iíve never said this about any Avery beer: this is subpar piss. Tastes like an old, stale and oxidized IPA. Maybe I got the bottle intended for Donald Trump?

zoucrew102 (1373) - - SEP 11, 2016
Bomber. Tropical fruit hop aroma with notes of citrus and floral hops, caramel and grass. Pours amber colored with a large, non-retentive off white head that also has some lacing. Starts with caramel malt and grassy hop flavors with a bit of floral hops as well. Finishes dry and mildly bitter with tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors and just a touch of pine. Good stuff.

Mep3222 (1263) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Malty slightly sweet aroma with a grassy, medicinal, dank, slight tropical hop aroma. Taste is a full range of hops, dank, piney, tropical, grassy. Malt balances the hops really well. It is very hoppy but not overpowering or too bitter. Finishes dry. Really lots of flavor in this one and a very enjoyable double IPA. Has maharaja qualities. Maybe slight dry finish, not bitter but dry. Real nice overall though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Specís. Clear copper-amber-mahogany with a foamy cream-colored head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of caramel, grass, rye toast, and resin. Taste is sweet and bready with just a touch of hop bittering. Very smooth medium-full bodied. Nice.

Beachmaster (451) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, with hints of yellow. Moderate khakihead which persists,leaving good lacing. Nose is caramel and hops, and the taste follows. Caramel up front, yielding to hop bitterness on the short finish. Mouth feel is medium, with moderate carbonation. Decent ale, nothing spectacular.

mixmasterob (1053) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Glad to see this one. Deep amber pour with a frothy off white head. Aroma was piney hop oils, dark fruit, caramel, resin. Flavors were slightly sweet but well balanced. Lots of resiny hops, bits of caramel, pine, touch of toast. Mouthfeel was slick and oily, medium plus. Nice, lingering bitter finish to keep everything else in line. Tasty stuff.
