This is a great ipa. I immediately liked the flavor and I found the bitterness smooth and not overpowering. When I taste a beer I want to taste it and this one delivers. There is a meat to this balanced beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz brown bottle into a Geordie Schooner glass. It poured a nice clear light orange amber colour with weak white foam. Mostly neutral grainbill, very faint Munich caramelly and bready notes, very little residual sweetness, emphasis definitely on the high-alpha American hops (I believe: Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook.) Sharp resiny bitterness and intense aromas and flavours: black currant fruit, lemon peel, cedar chips, honeysuckle nectar, unexpected nutmeg spice in the aftertaste. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, snappy dry finish. Tasty and true-to-style American IPA. No wonder it’s one of the best examples and such a successful flagship IPA brand.

Pours clear blonde. Not much head. Smell is grassy with a fruity undertone. Taste is bitter, grassy, fruity ( more than the aroma) . Slightly malty in the undertone. Ok beer, but not as refreshing as I like an ipa to be

Crystal clear golden color. Tropical fruit and resin on the nose. Taste- much like the aroma, you get the tropical fruit notes along with some lemon and grapefruit. Also ample caramel malt backbone. A long bitter resinous finish. Above average IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent IPA, purchased at "Liquor Direct" (aka D.E.P.’s Liquora) in Covington, Kentucky. What can I type... this is a rich, full-bodied India Pale Ale style brew, with the citrus/clove true IPA taste. I like it!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
The Avery IPA pours a clear golden yellow with a hint of orange with a decent creamy beige head that lasts a long while. The aroma is wheat, citrus, floral and caramel. The flavor is citrus and floral up front with a bit of wheat blended in and a nice caramel finish. Overall this is a nicely balanced IPA with plenty of hops and enough malts to lure in the non-hop heads.
