3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at the Petrol Station in Houston. Avery has a lot of experience casking this beer, and I think itís probably the most common cask in Texas - the Austin Flying Saucer seems to have it at least once a month. The color is somewhere between straw yellow and light amber, with an eggshell head. Surprisingly clear for a cask - itís bright. The nose has pineapple, a little grassy tone, and a bit of citrus rind. The flavor as a whole is fairly dry for an IPA, with a fairly distinct bitterness - it honestly sticks out a little. Not much sweetness to be found in this one. Iím really not sure whether to call it a hop-centric beer or an unbalanced beer. Overall, itís not bad, and itís certainly good for quenching one of those hop cravings we beer lovers seem to get from time to time.

Andy at Gloucester City Liquors recommended it, and this brew delivered. Nice golden orange hue with a thick white head. Good hop punch and refreshing finish. Solid IPA. Cheers!

Can poured into pilsner glass. Gusher upon opening. Pours a cloudy golden orange with an off-white head and minimal lacing. Smells of sweet tomato soup. Odd taste of sweet tomato soup and fruit, but not awful. Nice aftertaste of fruit and berries with a good bitterness. Pros and cons on this one.

Drinking an IPA is exactly the way I wanted welcome Avery to the state of Nebraska. That sounds pretentious... The welcome was undoubtedly better for me than Avery. This IPA goes into the glass orange, generally clear, and heady. Floral, earthy, citrusy, and crackery aromatics. Flavor has zest from grapefruit, lemon, and orange with some sweet melon and pine. Itís a bit dank, but the balance is superb. Doesnít take much time to crush this one.

A classic IPA! Very good and easy to drink. I could see this being am everyday beer if they sold it at the grocery. I like it!

Can @ Taylors & Jones With the Twist. Hazy golden with a medium sized white head, leaving good lacing. Floral and zesty aroma, citrus with some sweet malty notes. Well rounded and smooth mouthfeel. Bitter taste up front, grapefruit, floral and pine. Rounded sweet malty notes, sugar and caramel in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is floral, some malt, tropical fruit and pine. Appearance is golden amber, off white head. Taste is a bit malty, some tropical fruit and pine, a touch floral but mostly, and sadly, malt. Mouthfeel is medium body and carbonation, malt aftertaste. Overall, I was expecting this to be a lot better, based on other Avery IPAs, but oh well.

Single can. Pour is golden. Aromas are citrus and floral. Beer finishes on the dry side with unconvincing bitterness. Just not all there. Not overly impressed.

Can, thanks sevenhokie! Citrus hop aroma with floral and some tropical fruit hop notes as well as a little bit of caramel. Pours clear golden colored with a large, soapy off white head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with good lemony hop flavor as well as a bit of tropical fruit. Finishes dry but very smooth with some floral hop flavor and a good amount of caramel malt to balance the hops. Nice IPA!
