COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We the Brewers of Avery Brewing Company, in order to form a more perfect ale, require a new leadership that can liberate us from our quagmires in foreign lands; embrace environmentally sound energy alternatives to imported oil; heal our ailing health care system; free us from tyrannical debt and resurrect the collapsing dollar. We hereby pledge to provide him or her with an ample amount of our Presidential Pale Ale to support in the struggle for the aforementioned goals! Hail to the New Chief!

Not an "Imperial" pale ale, this is a democracy. Its Presidential! Take the all-American pale ale, a bipartisan blend of malt and hops, increase to both Avery Brewing standards, and then, of course, dry hop the result with that most quintessential of American hops, Cascades, and you get this... Ale to the Chief. A brew worthy of the Oval Office! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, hops and yeast.

Bomber. Tropical fruit hop aroma with notes of citrus and floral hops, caramel and grass. Pours amber colored with a large, non-retentive off white head that also has some lacing. Starts with caramel malt and grassy hop flavors with a bit of floral hops as well. Finishes dry and mildly bitter with tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors and just a touch of pine. Good stuff.

Mep3222 (1351) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Malty slightly sweet aroma with a grassy, medicinal, dank, slight tropical hop aroma. Taste is a full range of hops, dank, piney, tropical, grassy. Malt balances the hops really well. It is very hoppy but not overpowering or too bitter. Finishes dry. Really lots of flavor in this one and a very enjoyable double IPA. Has maharaja qualities. Maybe slight dry finish, not bitter but dry. Real nice overall though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (2688) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle from Specs. Clear copper-amber-mahogany with a foamy cream-colored head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of caramel, grass, rye toast, and resin. Taste is sweet and bready with just a touch of hop bittering. Very smooth medium-full bodied. Nice.

Beachmaster (475) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, with hints of yellow. Moderate khakihead which persists,leaving good lacing. Nose is caramel and hops, and the taste follows. Caramel up front, yielding to hop bitterness on the short finish. Mouth feel is medium, with moderate carbonation. Decent ale, nothing spectacular.

mixmasterob (1055) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Glad to see this one. Deep amber pour with a frothy off white head. Aroma was piney hop oils, dark fruit, caramel, resin. Flavors were slightly sweet but well balanced. Lots of resiny hops, bits of caramel, pine, touch of toast. Mouthfeel was slick and oily, medium plus. Nice, lingering bitter finish to keep everything else in line. Tasty stuff.

Orange hue with a thick off white head. Dull sweet aroma. Light to medium bodied starts smooth and a bit bready. Second half is dry and a bit spicy/hop ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brand new version of the beer 2016 re release 8.1% abv .... Pale to almost clear copper pour with a thin white head and light lacing.... Aroma of piney hops, biscuity malts, buttery and dank with some citrusy hops .... Taste is of light piney and dank hops, biscuity malts, caramel malt, some citrusy and floral notes .... Has a lightly dry hopped finish and a bit of booze lingers .... Not very impressive Ale to the chief

NikkTwist (2893) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Slightly hazy copper pour with soft beige foam. Nice lace. An odd mix. Hoppy dark red amber fruit. Plums and prunes. Mandarins. Key limes. Pinecones. Red liquorice. Burnt blood oranges. Charred plum pudding. Fish scales. Black currants. Hot spicy finish ultimately hides the high ABV.
