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!

Small white head, dissipates quickly. A splattery laceing. Clear gold with a copper hue. Medium body. Resiny nose citusy with some malt notes also. Big hop flavors with the malt showing up in the end. Finish is dry, bitter. OK IPA.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2003 Not a huge fan of the IPA style in general but I can still appreciate them. Aroma is bitter and hoppy with a bit of tart fruitiness. Appearance is amber in color and certainly inviting. Flavor is bitter and hoppy with a touch of sweetness that makes the flavors go well together. A good IPA but not my favorite.

Holy cat whizz, Batman! The hops gave this a distinct odor of feline urine when I first opened the bottle. It didn't calm down a whole lot. Metallic, unenjoyable. Decent label. A drain pour for me.

carboloader (660) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 Pours a clear amber/yellow with a medium-sized mostly white head that has decent staying power. Some bubbles. Good lacing. Aroma is awesomely hoppy -- one of the best I’ve smelled, with pine, spruce, and citrus tones. Hops are everywhere in the flavor. Ends in a long bitter finish. It seems nicely balanced to me, but I’m a definite hophead and can never get enough. I’m thinking that this will be one fo my favorites for some time. Modest alcohol for an IPA, but man is this one tasty!

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - AUG 21, 2003
12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date noticed. Poured out an exceptionally clear golden yellow color. Fast fading off-white head left a thin lacing on top of the beer. Aromas right away of Cascade hops. Some maltiness also detected. Fresh cut grass aroma as well. Tastes a bit metallic at first, then the hops kick in. A weak malt backbone struggles to keep up with the hoppiness of this brew. Coats the tongue with a syrup-like consistency. Finishes bitter, and slightly metallic. A good beer overall, but the metallic taste detracts from the overall experience.

heykevin (1273) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2003
Huge aromatic hop aroma quite orangey, very nice. Feels nice on the tongue, lowish, but persistent carbonation. Good caramel malt flavor. Nice lingering finish with malt and hop flavors coming together as one.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Gold-copper, color with a fair amount of carbonation. Strong flowery hop aroma. Some orange and a hint of spice as well. Flavor is more piney and resinous. Could be better balanced. Hops linger forever through the finish.

haddon90 (1385) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 Reminded me of the Stone IPA. Very VERY hoppy. Nice head with the pour and a good deep golden color. I highly recommend this! Had this in Steamboat Springs.

BBB63 (5751) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Slightly darker than straw hue, small head and good lacing. Piney and grapefruit aroma, undertone of spice and herbs. Starts off bitter hop, grapefruit tang. Mellows out on finish, smooth for an west-coast style IPA. Dry and lively mouthfeel, thin to medium-bodied. I'm surprised but the low average score, I'm found this to be a very approachable beer. Recommended for hop-heads and non hop-head alike.
