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!

Can pours a golden amber with a frothy white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral and citrusy hops. Taste is sweet orange, decently hoppy, pine, and a full malt balance. A great example of the style, but nothing extraordinary to me.

Nice, standard IPA. Deep gold color. Piney and floral hops. Light carbonation, medium bitterness in a medium bodied IPA. Just fine.

SPDickerman (1038) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Pours clear orange with a large white head. Smells of citrus, hints of pine. Taste is bitter, juicy citrus, hints of maltiness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Avery IPA finishes with a lingering juiciness.

Good aroma but hop flavor is somewhat overpowered by maltiness. Certainly decent, but there are better IPAs, no question. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

euniceradio (100) - Colton, California, USA - APR 23, 2015
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.

Plovmand (6887) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 11, 2015
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.

Cool_Bond (1935) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2015
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.

tmrmwel (1201) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
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.
