3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Avery. Pours a clear copper with fine white head, fair bit of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, very resinous, piney and citrus. Flavor is hoppy, resinous, strong citrus, with mild malt finish and hoppy, bitter aftertaste. Don’t recall noticing any malt last time. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and crisp, mildly oily texture. A good DIPA.

Bitter start full of grassy, piney hops. Earthy with a mildly resinous
mouthfeel. Quite a bit of fruit and some orangey citrus aroma. This one starts off with a decent blast of hops but it’s not astringent like some doubles can be. The bitterness and smooth flavor balance nicely. Very delicious, I would have another.

Into the glass, this pours a golden-orange into the glass, with a frothy head that leaves thick lacing. The nose is orange-laden florals, almost a citric gastrique. The flavors are similar, with lots of melon, orange, rose hips and finishes with an orange liqueur. The palate is sticky, with a lightly alcoholic mouthfeel and full body. The lupulin hops provide a melony, light effervescence to a thick offering. Nice job on the style here.

Draft, this was a refreshing imperial IPA. It lacked a hard bite but that was actually a good thing because this beer was fantastic. Slightly different from most IIPA’s but I liked that about it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange colored pour. Big off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Huge piney and citrus aroma with a big malt presence. Taste is spot on with the nose. Big malt sweetness and a bitterness that lingers for a bit. By far the best beer from Avery that I have had.

Draft @ Bicycle bar, Denver, Colorado. Pours a clear amber beer with a small, off white head on top. Aroma is citrus, honey malts, caramel, grapefruit. Flavour is quite bitter, heavy on citrus, medium bittersweet finish. Flavour is quite complex for an IIPA, well balanced between hops and malt. Nice brew.
