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!

Very similar to other West Coast IPAs. Very hoppy and lighter in color than I like. Body is similar to Hop Otin with even less body. A good one for those who like very hoppy without much body.

This was cool! I couldn’t remember the name of the IPA that I had last night, so I thought, ’Oh, hell, I’ll just type ’ipa’ and scan down the list’, and this is the first one. I *really* liked the smell of this stuff, the crisp floral hoppiness was nicely pronounced and I think I could pick out every citrus fruit known to mankind in the nose. The flavor didn’t quite follow through but it was still nicely balanced. This would be a good IPA for those who are put off by west-coast breweries hopping the shit out of their beers.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a small creamy off white head that doesn't last long, minimal lacing. Citrusy and fruity aromas, nice sweet grapefruit and piney, hoppy flavors. Medium bodied with a nice soft creamy mouthfeel, very easy to drink as I finished this bottle in just a few minutes, great session beer.

Strong and aggressive on the hops. Good bitters. Very flavorful Ale. Nice golden color and a very nice foam.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2002
Intense grapefruit and pine hop aromas and flavors. Malt is balanced and clean, with a med bitter finish. Gold-copper color with short head, fairly quickly dissipated but great lacing all through the glass. Overall, highly similar to Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale - but not identical.

Color of orange jello; Head was decent and fluffy; Nose of mild citrus and bread. Real piney on the tongue at first. Turned quite dry towards the end.
