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.

Real celebration for IPA lovers. The only thing I feel sorry about - I had only one bottle :)

Pours golden orange with a small off-white head. Smells strongly of pine and citrus. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, and bitter. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Avery Anniversary Twenty finishes very smooth and hides the almost 10% ABV very well.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, pineapple, wet grass, and pine needles. Taste does not disappoint with luscious grapefruit and pineapple one end, pine on the other, and just enough sweetness to bring it all together. The end result is spectacular and extremely pleasing for hopheads. Great beer!

kevinator (920) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Simply awesome and I think better than their other double IPAís. Great floral and pine aroma. Copper-amber color with a nice head. Above average weight with good carbonation and a hop bite that you can feel. Great balance without the malts bringing too much sweetness. Alcohol was hidden well. There was a vast array of hops appearances. Too bad this might be with us for only a brief time.

Nephilium (1357) - Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Nice big dank hoppy nose, pours a clear golden-amber with a full white head. This is a big hop bomb, with tropical fruit and citrus. Thereís a little bit of an alcohol burn in the finish. Overall this is a nice solid IIPA that Iíll be grabbing some more of before they disappear from the shelf.

One of the most well rounded IPAs I have ever had. Perfect mix of hops. Had it is the bottle and now on the draft

badpuppy69 (220) - orange, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours a light copper orange with tight white head. Aroma floral hops and sweet malt and some orange and grapefruit and a little garlic earthy note. Taste follows the aroma with a citrucy malty Sweet character along with a sort of spicyness with a medium to heavy smooth mouth feel. Some noticable alcohol. Very complx and tasty beer.

Bomber from LetsPour. Fantastic beer. Havenít rated in quite some time so itís great that I get to break the ice with this delicious brew. Aroma is amazing....floral hops...definite tropical fruits. Color is as expected...translucent gold with a inch thick white foamy head. Mouthfeel was especially nice...fuller than many double IPAs Iíve had recently. The flavor is really really good. Reminds me of some of the best DIPAís Iíve ever had back in the day....Dreadnaught and Blonde Behemoth came to mind as I sipped this brew. Folks who say they found garlic and onion flavors prevalent probably experienced some poorly kept brew...which is unfortunate. This one is sticky and a little boozy but those are good qualities in this beer. Glad I ordered a dozen. Great stuff...but again, I really love the DIPA style.
