In the 1700ís 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 Coloradoís 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!

Pour produced a nice pillowy head. The color is like the Avery label on the front... perhaps this was planned? Aroma smells of hops, but I canít seem to tell which variety. Easy drinking, overall decent IPA.

Dorwart (2457) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2005 Large white head. Frothy on top with good carbonation. Nice lacing. Great aroma. Very fruity hops with a excellent mix of peaches and pears. Could sit here and smell it all night. But what fun would that be. Color is a medium golden orange. Light bodied. Crisp and smooth with a great balance. Plenty of hops in there. Bitterness shows up at the finish and lingers for a while. More fruit in the flavor. Very easy drinking. An excellent IPA.

Floral, malty aroma. Clear and golden with minimal white head that dissipated quickly. No lacing, but a few bubbles on sides of the glass. A good, balanced hop and malt flavor. Flavor and aftertase both had a lot of citric and floral overtones. Aftertaste also had a lingering bitterness. Medium-light carbonation and medium bodied.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2005
Bottle. Bright orange color with minimal head. Hops all the way in the aroma, lots of pine and floral character. Medium body, slightly sticky and chewy, grapefruit, bitter finish. Typical yet solid west coast IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006 This is my first Avery. I purchased it at The Caboose in Ashland , Va. This is an excellent brew. Tthe aroma was of hops and the flavor of hops. It is an excellent balance of malt and hops. The IPAs are super. This IPA is very drinkable. The head was frothy but hung around. This is was one of my first IPA in awhile. It is special. It has a bitter taste that will keep you coming back. My second on 6/24/05 was just as good. I did not want the glass to empty. Another was enjoyed Christmas 2005. This is one of my favorite IPAs. Another on 5/11/06 when I brought my son back from VA tech. Lots fo citrus.

Thanks to matta for the bottle! Amber body with a small whitish head. Nose is BIG hops! Very floral and piney. However, thereís enough malt sweet lingering in the aroma to make it attractive. Light maple syrup notes. Taste is lightly spicy and hoppy with sweet, creamy maltiness, floral notes, and citrus fruits. Leans more towards the hops here. Body is smooth and mildly carbonated. Lingering bitterness throughout. Finishes with more hops, light spiciness, citrus notes, and mild sweetness.

Pale golden copper hue. Big whitish head dissipates to almost nothing. Floral, lemony citrus nose. Somewhat thin palate, grapefruit, pine needles, quite clean crisp and drinkable. I enjoy the beers from these guys immensely...keep em comin!

Iíll just go right out and say it. Not enough hops. An IPA isnít generally my beer-of-choice, but this is nowhere near Dogfish or Two-hearted. Itís still a good drink and very enjoyable though.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2005
Very clear golden-amber color with medium white head. The aroma is dominated by citrus hop notes, with some malty breadiness. The flavor starts out hoppy, bitter, floral, and piney. Just enough malt to back up the hops. Finishes crisp with a pleasant bitterness.

This one is hard to judge... only because whenever I usually get this brew, itís on tap...which is far better then the 12 ounce bottle version. On tap the citrus notes seem to really come forward, but in the bottle the hops seem a bit more subdued. Overall this IPA is pretty ho-hum. Nothing special, but iíve definitely had far worse. Get this one on tap if you can! itís much better!
