COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

22oz bottle, no BBD Decent head, copper color. Nose is subdued hops, yeast, citrus fruit. Nicely balanced flavor, malt is evident, bitter finish, hops certainly show up, but donít overwhelm the beer...nice piney lingering bitterness. A pleasure.

This is a good quality IPA. Not the best Iíve ever had but I could enjoy one of these on a daily basis. Pours a nice copper color with a decent sized ivory head. The nose is a citrusy hop scent. With a smooth creamy texture and citrus hop flavors that arenít overwhelming. Simple but good.

A decent IPA, nothing special but nothing bad either. Pours a straw/yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is floral and citrucy, with a bit of that cat-food hop smell I donít enjoy. Flavor is pretty sharply bitter, more so than a lot of IPAís. Flavor falls a bit flat in the face of the bitterness really, but it finishes dry and malty, which is pleasant. Like I said, decent but nothing special. Canít go wrong with Avery though!

Gotta keep telling myself that Iím a Stoutie. But lately Iíve been enjoying so many excellent IPAs. My Secret Santa sent me two Iím anxious to try. Had this last year but before joining RateBeer. So, I had it again last night and loved it. Nice amber color with frothy white head. Aroma was the appealing grapefruity I associate with the style. Lightly carbonated and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor was so very refreshing and clean and crisp and grapefruity. Great stuff.

Bottle. Mmmmmmmm....hops. Nose is hoppy and floral. Taste is of course hops, with some lemon and a little spice. Finish is bitter and very clean. For an IPA the hops are very subdued and mild. Goes down great. A very refreshing easy going IPA. I will be having this again.

Kevin (2078) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 12, 2004
bottle. pours a golden yellow with a fluffy white head. strong hoppy pine aroma that i expected. not too strong on the hops balanced with a caramel malt finish. very satisfying leaves a refreshing taste. iím glad i grabbed a sixer of this(of course Lumpy will drink most of these when he gets here, the damn hophead).

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Lots of grapefruit and pine in the aroma. Beautiful sparkling gold-orange body with terrific lacing. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a heavily bitter, heavily acidic finish. Medium body, creamy, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: hops bring forth a spicy astringency that Iím not too wild about.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Pours a deep golden amber with a nice fluffy egg white head and some great sticky lacing. Aroma is slightly medicinal, hoppy and finally dirty dishwater, also some peppermint and herbs upon second smell. This is a great over the top hoppy IPA with some very fresh lively acidity, citrusy zing and just slightly under-balanced on the malt side, but it works for it, as it comes through in a toasty, bready aftertaste. The finish is very crisp and dry, leaving you wanting more. Very nice and clean!
