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!

Bottle. The pour was a murky medium orange with some yellow highlights and a small (1 finger or less) white creamy head that was somewhat lasting, finally receding to a large puddle with a small collar which produced some excellent sheeting of lace that coated the glass. The aroma was of floral and spruce hops, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit). The taste was nicely bitter and lightly malty with a mild sweet caramel undertone from the start, progressing into a nice bitter hoppy taste with just a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor was around for an average time proceeding the swallow with a mild bitter hoppiness left to linger. Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a dry texture and a mild to medium carbonation. Overall an IPA with a light maltiness and a bit of citrus, which complimented the hoppiness very well...

Can from Toft Vin, CPH - lovely amber coloured pour with firm white head and persistent lacing. Sweet fruity and malty aroma and taste, caramel, toffee, big hoppy punch with some great tropical citrus grapefruit, peach and orange across the palate. Lovely drop.

A sleeper that unexpectedly shook the very core of a buying strategy. Even in a can, the exterior beckoned for a thirsty adventurer. Upon the first drink, the words "drink ability" we're re-defined. The initial sip suggested that perhaps too many prior drab IPAs had dampened the experienced pallet. However with the next intentional drink, all previous qualms were deleted due to the fine smoothness and pleasant unpredictability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is just lightly citrusy with a little too much careless malt sweetness. The flavor is quite odd, the mix of hops is quite different than I was expecting. Just lightly bitter with minimal citrus. A little too much caramel malt on the finish though, it dulls the hops a bit. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Ok, just not a favorite of mine.

355ml can. Clear light amber, white head. Smells of caramel with hoppy herbaceous notes and some sweet fruits. Taste is a lot of hops and a good malty backbone. Very good bitter finish and hoppy aftertaste.

Somewhat peachy hoppy aroma, with some barnyard/lemongrass type aromas. Nice amount of malt, hop balances the malt nicely. Really well balanced ipa, but hop profile is not quite what I am after. Very nice though. Peachy with a bitter finish. Quite a bit if hops. Actually the more I drink the more I like it. Some fruity hops balanced by a bitter hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
