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!

My favorite thing about this beer is the aroma. Flowery and just sort of fresh.Somewhat pale in color for the style. The flavor is not quite as full as I would like. Overall I keep wishing Avery would revamp this as most of their newer beers are so much bigger (yes I know its not an i2pa, but niether is Ten). One can wish I suppose.

Not my favorite IPA, but still okay. Seems harshly bitter, but not a lot of aroma or hop flavor to back it up. Compared to most of the beers I've had from Avery, this one doesn't have nearly as much balance or interesting things going on. Wish they would make a lighter version of Hog Heaven as an IPA

color consistent with style and what a style. If you like that overwhelming citrus flavor with bitter finish this beer will do right by you

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2004 Pours a light golden yellow, almost lager like. Smells of pine and I can't explain what else. The flavor is of decent hops, not as piney as the smell and is very light with a dry finish. The head was of beautiful litle bubblies, but the flavor is a let down. Very light. Almost wattered down.

Apperance is golden orange with a fair white head that diminishes rather quickly, but leaves a nice lace. Lots of floaties dancing in the carbonation. Aroma is a bit citrusy but more perfumey floral. Flavor is grapefruit and grassy with a nice malt balance. Good flavors but maybe a bit watery. Finish is slightly dry and mildly bitter. Over all a good IPA it just leaves me wanting a bit more.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Golden clear with white thin head. The nose is very flowery and WOW lots of grapefruit and hops in the taste. Easily drinkable, with the exception of the acidic ness of the grapefruit

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JAN 18, 2004
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.
