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!

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 (621) - 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 (9713) - 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).

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2004 Extremely tasty floral and piney hop scents. A Fluffy yetbig bubbled, off=white head atop a dark golden copper colored body. Sweet orangey and lemon hops taste that comes very refreshing. The finish is a nice, slightly bitter, piney taste. Excellant ipa.

I really like this beer. When I think of an IPA this is the sort of brew that comes to mind. Pours a dark yellowy color with a lasting white head. Lacing leaves a beautiful even coating down the glass. Hop aroma is prominent, fresh with big citric and pine overtones with just a touch of sweetness. Flavor is intensly hoppy with the malt being ever-so-quiet hidden in the background. You can almost feel the malt back there rather than taste it. Finish is clean and refreshing leaving you ready for another. Wonderful beer and highly underrated IMHO.
