This was my #1 pick when I used to frequent the hop haus. It tastes like a christmas tree. Very citrusy and super hoppy. Goes down very easy. Great IPA right up there with stone ruination.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good aroma but hop flavor is somewhat overpowered by maltiness. Certainly decent, but there are better IPAs, no question.

Did not like. Malt flavor was off. Hop character was missing in quality and quantity. Can’t say that I like Avery beers.

Pours hazy gold. Decent head dissipates quickly to skim. Aroma of trop fruits, pine and fresh citrus. Taste is peach, mango, pine, caramel malts and OJ. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish bitterness lasts well. Good canned IPA.

Can. It pours hazy deep golden with a dense cream like head. The aroma is floral and citric with notes of pine. Underlying bready malty notes. Nice floral hoppy flavor. Good bitterness and good malty balance.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Incredibly bitter beer in both aroma and flavor. OK bitterness which fills the anterior and upper part of the mouth for a long time. Far from what my taste buds like. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Old rating: Pours golden, with a big creamy head. Aroma is bitter hops, with pine and orange peel, as well as some roasted malts, and a touch of oak. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is citrusy hops with grapefruit and orange peel, as well as a good roasted malt backbone. Lingering bitter finish.

Gold in color with an ivory head and is very cloudy. This beer is very hoppy with grapefruit notes. It has a medium body and is rather soft.

12 Fl OZ ($12.50 6pack) not an amazing IPA but its decent. The palate has a bit of lingering flavor. Not the worst but not the best. mid range at best

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/16/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
