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!

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Orange in color with medium white head. Hoppy aroma. Strong hoppy flavor with just enough malts added. Citrus feel does come in at the end with a long hoppy grapefruit finish. Nice

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Dark orange in color with a very small but persistent head. Pungent (in a good way) hop aroma. Very big, round taste of citrus and floral hops with a long dry finish. I’m very glad to have found this one.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Dark golden color with a medium sized white head. Nice citrus/hop aroma. Flavor is mostly hops(cascade?). Nice and tart with the malt making an appearance at the end. I’m starting to really like this brewery.

Pailhead (5377) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is strong citrus hops. Pours a transparent orangish-yellow with a nice white head with good retention. Great lacing. Nice quick citrus taste up front followed by a strong hoppy finish. Very good balance. Long hop grapefruit aftertaste. Very nice IPA.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Nice IPA. Could use more malt to balance out those nice citrus hops. I’m not a big fan of citrus hops, but these were good, and really acidic.

10.10.04 12oz bottle thanks to springslicker. Beer colored pour with ample, sticky head. Giant c-hop grapefruit goodness aromas, I love it already. Super sharp hops, lemon/grapefruit citrus, dominate the flavor with just enough maltiness to remind me it’s still beer. A very nice standard offering from a brewer that I often think goes a couple steps too far. This is Avery’s 60min IPA (or vice versa), the beer that showcases great craft and still a pandering to the beer geeks. A centerpiece. If I lived in CO, this would be a go-to brew. Could I be any more redundant?

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Dark yellow colour. Wow, flower, apricot nose. Very very smooth and mellow mouthfeel. Rich, and big hopbitter flavour with notes of citrus and a little salty, finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2004
A nice floral/citrus hopped IPA with a nice balance, fresh hoppy finish, and nice grapefruit finish. Pours amber with a decent white silky head. A quick malt to the start with a good bitterness in the end.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 This is a very enjoyable IPA. The color is golden and the head is large at first then dies down. The lace coats the glass well. Very nice looking. Smells of citrus and passion fruits under a slightly medicinal malt backbone. The taste is reliable. I definately am getting my hop fix here. Orange and other citrus flavors are very prominent. Clean and crisp but very thin in the mouth. This is a solid IPA.

Hoppy bitter aroma that also brings some fruit. Flavor starts fruity and hoppy, but then the hops is growing stronger. Bitter finish.
