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!

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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 (1/18/06) Crystal clear golden body with rocky off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some lemon. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, light lemon, caramel/cookie. Bitter, but not as much as I remember, though I last had it in the days before IIPAs. Medium body, quite drinkable. Excellent IPA, no letdown despite being a re-rate of one of my first 600 beers. (8/4/8/4/16)

(7/26/02) I know I’m a sucker for brews with big Cascade flavor, but so what! The aroma is strong grapefruit, letting you know what’s on its way. Flavorwise, this baby’s well-balanced, with a healthy malt backbone in support. A fine beer for those who like what it has to offer. (9/4/8/4/16)

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUL 15, 2002
nice strong IPA. big floral hop aroma. amber color with a big head that left some lacing. citrusy hop taste that leaves a pleasant grapefruit aftertaste. just enough malt to counter the heavy hops.

akinm (282) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 6, 2002
nice strong aroma of hops. nice medium carbonation. the hops seemed grassy/hay-like to me and my friend also drinking it. somewhat dry mouthfeel. definitely went down easy.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2002
a nice IPA. thick, hazy orange/copper color. medium head. The hop was citrus/slightly grapefruity. almost enough malt, but not quite. thin finish.(that, and the lack of malt balance are what keep it in the ’average-IPA’ category for me.)

jsquire (3436) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Nice copper color with a good head and a very intense floral hoppy nose out of the bottle. I spent the first few minutes with this beer just smelling it. A very dry beer with a great spicy, citrus flavor consistent with a good IPA. Nice bitter hop finish. I agree with very crisp and clean. Very drinkable.

obxdude10 (2037) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2002
Nice hoppy pale aroma, kept a great head even though it was out of the bottle, a little bit of a orange-peel type of flavor, very crisp & clean

Very pleasing aroma of citrus and hops. Great head retention. Flavor is a little thin with a good hop finish.
