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!

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.

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.

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

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

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. Iím starting to really like this brewery.

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. Iím very glad to have found this one.

Cornfield (5570) - 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. Thereís 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.

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

Brew4Dug (139) - 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.

Pailhead (5443) - 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.
