COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1700’s one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increased alcohol content perserved his ales during the long voyage to India (as depicted in our label) to quench the thirst of British troops. Today, we tip our hat to that historic innovation by brewing Colorado’s hoppiest pale ale. Avery IPA demands to be poured into your favorite glass to truly appreciate the citrusy, floral bouquet and the rich, malty finish. Brewed by hopheads for hopheads!

Poured a clear amber with a medium ized long lasting white head. A big citrus aroma, grapefruit and mandarins. Flavor lightly malty sweet with the middle and end hoopy and bitter. Medium bodied and slightly silky.

These hops don’t mess around. They grab you and don’t let go until well after the last drop. Drink carefully and appreciate.

I dont know what to say. could it be that i havent had an IPA in so long, or is it really this good? Huge, wet hops in the nose. the taste was medium bodied thats just awashed with fresh hops. its so chewy and bitter, bready bitterness like a fresh batch of bread dipped in grass shavings. the hop assault doesnt let up.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2004
I’ve had plenty of IPAs, and this is the closest to unsweetened grapefruit juice I’ve found. Hazy golden-orange body with suspended floaties and a thick, puffy off-white head. Bright hops aroma heavy on grapefruit rind and pulp. The same grapefruit characteristics absolutely dominate the flavor profile, with malts being an afterthought. There are better IPAs, and many of them.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Amber colored with a small head. An herbal nose dominated by flowery hops with a touch of sweetness. This beer has a pleasant citrusy hop flavor and an enjoybale amount of bitterness on the finish. Not world class, but a very solid example of the style.

On draft at the St Jame’s Tavern in Columbus. Another spectacular IPA: flowery, fruity hops are just oozing from this beer. Delicious.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2004
This poured a clear golden color with a healthy white head. The hoppy aroma is mainly of orange rinds with a little bit of the floral. Tasty medium mouthfeel. There’s a solid nutty malt backbone with some serious grapefruit and orange bitterness. The finish is much less bitter than the taste had me expecting. Good IPA.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Dark golden pour, topped by a foamy white head. Nose shows orange and grapefruit notes with a little malt. Very clean. Hop flavors burst forward with intense citrus flavors, backed by a nutty malt backbone. Finishes bone dry, with some grassy notes. Pretty good...not my favorite, but still very enjoyable.

Brew4Dug (138) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Very aromatic and fruity with citrus overtones. Starts out tart but finishes very smoothly and lacks typical bite that I look forward to when drinking this style. Good overall, but not the best example available.

OldGrowth (2764) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Bottle, from Halftime Beverage. Good nose, Citrusy orange/grapefruit with a hint of nuts. Pungent. Clean orange color. Good head that faded quick. Bitter flavors, grapefruit, burnt, tinny kinda thing. Some honey/toffee too. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, Bitter citrus finish. Good brew. signature PNW, even if it is in the Rockies.
