What else? What else would you expect from us, a bunch of severely hop obsessed brewers, to celebrate such a glorious occasion? Anything other than a massively hopped IPA would be an affront to our rich history of loving excessive use of that beautiful flower, Humulus Lupulus.
1993-2013. 20 years of brewing excellence. To all who have played a part in creating such a vibrant and quality conscious culture, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and pint glasses!!
Availability: Bottled in May 2013. One and done.

Draft. Pale and sweet honey malts, with floral hops, and light citrus. Too much of a sweet malty presence, and the hops come across old and subdued. Blech.

22oz bottle thanks to ditmier. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a cream head. Nose is sweet malts candy and a nice hop note. Taste is as the nose with lots of sweetness some hop and a touch of bitterness on the end.

It poured a hazy orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was piney, astringent and full of citrus. The taste was very bitter, with a dry, big residual hop presence. The citrus kicked in on the finish and was of big grapefruit. Enjoyable.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Home snifter. Nice golden-amber pour with mild head and almost no lace. A few sudsy bubbles lasted on top the entire beer. Aroma is pine, citrus, flowers and a little wet dog. (maybe from the too long in my fridge..should’ve had sooner.) Taste is quite good with the hops explosion of pine, citrus, grass, flowers and the right malts to balance. The honey dials the hop profile back some. More bitter on the finish, but also comes out slightly sweet. Light body, good carbonation. Very drinkable. Happy Anniversary Avery (plus about 7 months now.)

MadIndian (2663) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle gift from SJ. This was absolutely amazing. You can tell Avery pit a lot of work and planning into this one. Nice hoppy, floral, piney aromas and taste, but where it differents it the blend of honey with the caramel malts and mild bready finish that left me with a smile

Light amber pour with a small soapy head. Notes of burnt caramel, orange citrus, pine, copper, and fresh air.

On tap at Ashley's. Pours light and clear with little head. Little on the nose, but smooth, with a bite and strong hoppy flavor. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled May 2013 It’s golden with a soapy loose sheet of white foam and brilliant clarity. Smells of lots of grapefruit, resin, some orange peel, some sage, onion and a little malt. Flavor is malt, lots of onion (long steamed), resin, sweet malt, a little too sweet for my chops on the style. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. Medium love for this beer overall, seems too sweet and the onion character isn’t one I usually go for.

In short: A fruity 10% IPA that is surprisingly smooth and easy drinking. Good beer.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh one month after the beer release.
The look: Clear shining rusty orange body topped by a persistent small white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.< br/> In long: Nose is fruity hops but with a less common signature that lies in the cantaloupe and exotic fruits territory. In mouth the beer offers a clean mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Taste starts with a solid and crispy-clean malt backbone, toasted cereals, sundried burnt hay and a sweetness that feels like dried fruits. Then comes a whole lot of fruity hops but with a signature that is really not aggressive. A round and smooth fruity bitterness of low-medium intensity. Sweetness sensation is relatively low for such a beer and there is almost no alcohol presence. Happy twentieth anniversary Avery, nothing wrong with a twenty year old American brewery being on ratebeer, but if you are an American ratebeerian and you are twenty years old or younger please have your parents sign on the line so I know it was ok for you to read this rating
