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!

On tap at Papago. Very good IPA. Citrusy and floral hop aroma. Clear golden color, white head. Nice hop flavor, plenty of bitterness. Good malt backbone. Medium body. Overall, very well-balanced IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 This brew was pretty good. Certainly not the best (there are others that are cheaper that i would recommend over it) but pretty good nonetheless. Pours a lovely light gold color with a head that truly lingered. Nose is of sweet and florally hops and at the same time a dry and spicy (almost corianderlike) spiciness. eminataing from the yeast. On the tongue it is about the same only spicier. Very bitter hop profile with a not so pleasing pepperiness that develops on the way down. Ok brew not excellent but pretty good. G-rat

A light yellow or golden pour. Very transparent body and very noticeable bubble activity. The head was big, white and creamy in appearance. The aroma was gentle with grapefruit peel scents. The taste started off smooth and had a light grapefruity bitterness. Then, the bitterness sharpened at the end. Over all, this one was enjoyable and I’d have another.

Bottle. Pretty tasty stuff actually. Quite hoppy. Sweet hops, lychee and pine. Medium bitter, well made i think.

maltdog (619) - Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Honeyed gold with a trace of chartreuse. Phenominal rocky, lasting head, dense enough to carve my initials in. Pure juicy hop nose- grapefruit, orange marmalade, pine, tropical fruit. Lucious hop flavor in the foreground, but malt is almost undetectable. It seems this was brewed expressly as a hop delivery vehicle; a dash of barley flavor would be welcome. Perfect carbonation contributes an effervescent bite, and remains undiminished to the last sip. Body seemed a little light. Zesty, spicy, nutmeggy(?) hop aftertaste- sharp and flavorful rather than overly bitter.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Ver clear light gold with nice white head and active carbonation. There are some fairly sharp hop aromas but a plesant light malt aroma as well. It is dominated by a spruce/pine hop flavor.

mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - JUN 9, 2004
12 oz bottle: pours a crystal clear auburn color. Slight head, that leaves you a nice lacing as you drink.. kind of poo smelling, what makes this smell? Smells also of hops. Taste is better than i expected, malty, feels good in the mouth, but fairly thin.. the best part of this beer was the beer bottle

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Average sized creamy off-white head that is fully lasting... light and clear yellow/amber body. Cascadey grapefruit aroma with a flowery pepper sense. Taste was also cascade in type, with a peppery bite and grapefruit peel. Overall, mediocre, but not bad.

Wow, big hop wallop with some semi sweet citrus flavors in the aftertaste. Avery comes through again!

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Light orange/amber color with an average sized white head. Subtle floral and citris smells. Piney and overly powering bitter taste (not a good bitter, more of a sour bitter). After finishing this beer, the glass was covered with lacing. Struck me as a run of the mill IPA (there are a lot better ones out there).
