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!

Clean, crisp and hoppy with a white head. This beer slaps you in the face with a handful of Cascade hops and keeps you begging for more. This beer reminds me of SNPA but with more Cascade dry hopping. It’s not as good as Dogfish Head 60 but comes very close. This is a wonderful example of an IPA and a terrific beer. If you’re a hophead give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Large head, clear golden. Pungent Cascade hop aroma. Big hop punch up front, good bitterness throughout. Long bitter finish. Very well done IPA.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Bottle purchased at World of Beer in Clearwater. Pours basically an orange color with a medium sized head. Aroma is mostly citrusy with a hint of pine. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and spicy. Hoppy, crisp and clean. A nice IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Not the greatest, but I could still drink a mess of ’em.

12oz bottle. ~57°. NB worthy glass. My browser shut down and erased the first half (the only half done) of my review. Anyway, orange with a 1/4", short lasting head. Nose of citrus peels with some sweetness. The flavor is resiny and, to a lesser extent, citrusy hops. Not super bitter, but nicely done. I am kinda drunk right now, so this will not make it into the "Latest Killer Quote." Anyway the beer is good. Hoppy, dry finish. Pretty good mouthfeel, maybe from the carbonation.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2005
12 bottle: clear orange gold with a slight haze and a sticky off-white head. Strong evergreen aroma with a bit of sap and lemon zest in the distance. Nicely carbonated and full of citrus bitterness. Long, slow and wet bitter finish: bits of pepper, coriander, and other herbs and a bit of perfume. An easy drinking beer, that is nice by the 6-pack.

mookie (45) - Tacoland, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Light golden color. Aroma very grapefruity with hops jumping out of the glass. Good lingering foam. Reminds me of Liberty Ale by Anchor B.C. Not as soft as, yet slightly more bitter than Liberty. Lingering bitterness. Nice bubbles. Good balance. Impressionable. A very nice IPA indeed.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 Deep amber with reddish & apricot highlites and a thin off white head with average lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma but with some peppery spiciness and malt in there as well. Extremely well balanced flavor with plenty of robust hops, malt, apple sweetness and a little light toast. Crisp mouthfeel and finish. Just the right amount of bitterness for an IPA that could keep going down all night long. This is a winner.

Film of head, decent lacing. Amber clear color, nose of nice floral hops, fresh & crispy, maybe some caper note? Taste malty, balanced with a mild bitterness amount. Some chocolatey malt & more bitterness seeps through, very balanced & tasty.

Bottle. Should have more hop aroma. Nice medium golden color which could be a little darker. Slightly hazy but OK for style. Good hop bitterness in the flavor, although I am a hop-head and would prefer a little more. Interesting in that this beer is a bit malty but yet the carbonation gives it a nice clean crisp palate. Overall an IPA that one could drink alot of without too much hops or alcohol.
