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!

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.

Pours light golden, not expecting that after smelling from the bottle. Very nice aroma, strong of american hops, very potent and floral. Flavor is somewhat malty and hoppy. This beer seems one dimensonal, focused on the hops which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Seemed a little thin as I got towards the bottom of the glass. Nice, crisp bitter fininsh. Good IPA.

I’ve had this Avery IPA that Andrew196 sent me unintentionally sitting for a few months now. Poured into my Corsendonk Tulip glass this sparkling IPA pours a crystal copper colored body with a huge froth of rocky white head.
The perfume like aroma is large with pine sap & grapefruit, very much a fragrance of a sawmill. The flavor has mostly the same characteristics. This is FAR hoppier than I was expecting, I think that if I liquefied a Christmas tree, and added some fresh grapefruit peel zest, the concoction would be this identical brew. Smooth palate with a Nice dry finish.
Thanks for the IPA Mike, Cheers

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Nice clear copper color that is crowned by a good lasting beige head. Aromas of citrus and hops waft from the glass as I pour it. A light grassy hay aroma (but only the good aspects), there is a decent amount of hop aroma to this beer. It is well carbonated, and gets quite lively when swirled in the glass. Great malt flavor that accompanies the hoppy flavor and bitterness. A malty sweet flavor with hints of biscuits and caramel malts. Quite a lingering bitterness in the finish. A good solid IPA, not quite over the top, which is good because you don't always want that. There is a ton of balanced flavors in this beer. Both the malt and hops are competing for attention, though the hops are the definite center piece. Definitely drink this beer on the warm side of cool, it allows more of the flavor to open up.

CapFlu (4516) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a thin, white head and a deep amber body. Local sediment floaties! Full nose of Cascade hops that is reflected in the flavour, interesting grapefruit bitterness shows through mid-palate. Lasting bitter finish. Good! Many thanks to TChrome...

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2003
Way too hoppy for me as I am not a hop head by any means. It poured a small sized ivory head with fine-small bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was clear with some carbonation observed and a golden hue. The nose was very hoppy as was the flavor which is of course very typical for an IPA. It left a lingering bitter aftertaste with a tingly and smooth mouthfeel and it was medium bodied. This IPA left a good lacing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 16, 2003
This brew poured a medium head of fine to medium sized white bubbles that lasted a long time and left behind a good lacing and a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body. The aroma was all hops and the mouthfeel was bubbly and tingly from start to finish with a slight bitterness in the finish. Typical IPA. The flavor is nice for an IPA and all hops.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Peach color. White head. Smells like grapefruit, like ruby red. Maybe the peel, bitter smelling. The bitterness in the flavor is a little reminiscent of grapefruit. Very hoppy. At least it is a sharp bitterness. Great for an IPA. Probably the best I have had.
