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!

Lightly speckled golden with a foamy white head. Great aroma - resiney and piney, perfumey with a appreciative malt sweetness to compliment the hops. The body is very bitter and resiney with a great malt backbone. Long and nice.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Pleasant looking .Small hue of particles, creamy white head. Aroma; superbly developed, wild rose, medium acidic hops, meadow flowers. Soft yet very distinctive sure of it self. Flavour; All that hops need some malt support and here they have it. Good? No, great, lucky to have another great, superb composed IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2010 Loyal grapefruit hops remain with their pine counterparts...Potent honeyed malt flavors envelop most of the potent hop signature...The moss growing in a hop madman’s rock garden...This is a little sweeter than I like my session IPAs, but it is very good nonetheless...

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 (12723) - 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
