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!

ContemplateBeer (1823) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 10, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2015 12 oz. can from Louisville Beer Store; some kind of number code on the bottom, but it’s smudged and impossible to read. Aroma: Light to moderate clementine with a cereal and butterscotch malt base. Appearance: Very slightly hazy light copper pour with soft carbonation holding up a foamy white head; the head fades into a thin, slightly bubbly skin. Flavor: Butterscotch and clementine very much in balance up front; malts fall off a little in the second half, and allow for bitterness to creep in; the finish is mostly dry and has a lingering bitterness. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Maybe a little old school at this point, but an acceptable IPA. I have the feeling this is probably on the old side; I can only imagine a fresh can would have higher marks.

willisread (1284) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 20, 2015
Can from BCS. Drank straight from the can. Nice big pine and resin aromas with a touch of grapefruit. Taste is more of the same with some nice malty sweetness that comes through. Almost drinks like an Imperial IPA with a sticky sweetness that is present. A little too sweet on the finish although there is solid bitterness throughout.

Beerathon (1668) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Golden pour with frothy white head. Floral, soapy, faint citrus. Crisp moutfeel, nice carbonation. It’s alright, nothing special. Avery’s bigger bottle format beers are typically much better.

Barreras (1368) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours a light copper color with an orange tint. Floral aroma, with a citrus Holly flavor. Surprisingly clean and smooth, with a floral aftertaste. Slightly bitter, but crisp. A nice easy drinking beer for the style.
