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!

Slightly hazy gold. White, frothy head. Fresh, flowery grapefruit & pine aroma. Sticky feel. Lovely, restrained, hop flavour of grapefruit & pine, nicely balanced w/ just enough malt.

Copper gold color, decent head and lace. Citrusy hop aroma, touch of toastiness. Flavor was very hoppy, citrusy again, bitter finish. Pretty well made, refreshing. Thanks CapFlu.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2009 Coppery colour. Grapefruity aroma, with slight toast. Refreshing, crisp, lemony, grapefruity character. Very dry. The aroma is nice as the glass goes but the palate reveals itself fairly simple. In the rotation but not top of the charts, as IPAs go.

Citrusy hoppy aroma. Orange amber color with a small white head. Hoppy flavor, with some citrus notes. Nice malty finish balancing things out. Very solid IPA

Pours a copper colour with a huge hoppy aroma that is citrusy, floral and a bit piney. Flavour is likewise with a bit of malt. Very nice

Tried it last nite at a beer tasting. Light color. Starts off with a fairly hoppy taste and finishes with a surprising hint of malt. Went back for seconds of this one.

Indra (2591) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Flowery, sweet aroma, citrusy touches of grapefruit and lemon along with something like honeysuckle and pine. Faintly hazy golden yellow color, with a fine, uneven head and thin wisps of lace. Begins with a goodly amount of citric hop flavor and bitterness and actually becomes more malty as the flavor progresses, finishing on a honeyed, sweetish note, still blending with the everpresent fruity hoppiness. Mild palate, lightly creamy texture. An easygoing yet flavorful and quenching rendition.

raymow (791) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Nice hoppy and slightly sweet aroma. Same for the taste. Decent color - dark golden to light amber. Pretty good IPA.

Pale amber body topped by a very nice white creamy head that leaves excellent lacing. Ahh the aroma of Cascades. Grapefruit. Yummy. THe flavor is no surprise given the aroma. It is well balanced and just bitter enough to satisfy. Medium body that is quite smooth. The best of the Avery lot that I have yet had.
