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.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bomber bottle and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a clean golden hue with an initial big frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of resiny and citric hops, very slightly dank and herbal with a even handed biscuity and honey malt background. The taste is moderately to heavily bitterness along with some hop spice and hop fruitiness. The malt strikes a nice counterpoint to the hops, there for some balance but never malty nor sweet. I bit boozy on the finish. Honestly I did wished the mouth feel was more aggressive and biting... seems shy in a way. Overall I dig this brew and it could be a tweak or two from being world class.

What a delicious hop-head beer! Glad I was able to taste what is now a retired hoppy beer!

TXBadger (1354) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a nice clear golden color with white head. Pine, floral notes, and citrus on the nose; follow onto the palate. Had a good mouthfeel, full-bodied. Finishes pretty clean.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has notes of citrus and spicy pine hops. Good caramel malt backbone. Medium hazy orange hue with a white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied and oily with a soft carbonation. Overall a very good IIPA. Enjoyed it.

ICEatALAMO (928) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a vibrant orange. Drinking this a little late, so not sure how it will taste. The aroma is sweet inviting hops. The taste is smooth, still good hop presence. No bitterness that lingers. Very good iipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2014
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.

BuckeyeBoy (2695) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2014
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.

jandd1983 (2541) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2014
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.

Fritz123 (971) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2013
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.)
