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!

Golden honey color with a slight brown tint. Head is thick, long lasting and white. Very hoppy smell- powerful, ruby-red grapefruit contrasted exquisitely with sweet pear. Strong and succulent flavor. Pine, peach, pear, and grapefruit all teeter on the brink of sweet and bitter without tipping the scale in favor of one. Good balance, very tasty. Bittersweet aftertaste. This is one of the better IPA’s out there, especially for those like me who enjoy sweeter IPA’s. Brought to me by my good friend Jeremy from Rochester, NY.

Pungent piney aroma with floral/citrus hops taste. Enjoyable, but not my favorite from Avery.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Extremely clear, light copperish appearance, decent head formation. Strong hoppy aroma, fruit punch an citrus. Sweet lemony flavor at first, mild shortbread notes but really not a lot of malt. Orangey sweetness with a strong citiric bite in the finish, with a long lingering bitterness.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2003
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 (6616) - 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.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
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...
