3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium to dark golden brown with a thick head. It has a slightly hoppy, almost metallic aroma. The flavor is pretty smooth, with a lot less of a bite than most IPAs.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite clear for an India Pale. Nice orange color to it with a lot of carbonation.There is a cream quarter inch head with some nice lacing. Definite grapefruit peel smell to it, quite citrusy and bitter smelling. Quite bitter flavor as well, but inoffensive. Good but I think that I like the flavor of the Avery IPA q bit better.

12 oz pour from bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Orange-yellow, translucent, solid off-white head. Very piney nose. Medium body, a little sticky. Taste is bitter, malty, on the aggressive side.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Slightly hazy copper amber with decent sized foamy white head. Decent retention and a fair amount of lace left over.
S - Good hop smell, with a good amount of citrus (orange and grapefruit) as well as some floral/herbal smells. Faint caramel malt.
T - A lot of varieties of hop flavors are abundant. Citrus (orange and grapefruit), a good amount of herbal/floral tea-like hops. Also a bit pine and pepper. The background has a bread/biscuit and slight caramel malt taste. This provides a base and balances the hops a bit.
M - Medium body and decent carbonation. Crisp and fairly smooth.
D - Pretty good. Fairly balanced beer with hops being the center of attention. Body pretty good for drinkability.
Notes: Pretty balanced hoppy beer. Not an amazing beer, but a good beer for a hop centered beer but not a really bitter or heavily hopped beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral aroma with a mild, spicy, hop taste. Deliberately not extravagant (I suspect!), just a nice, classic IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden in color with scents of citrus hops that dominate. In the mouth it was medium-bodied and very well-balanced. To repeat, the thing that strikes me most is the balance.
