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.

Amber orange pour with a nice lasting head and sticky lacing. The aroma is nice and citrusy with grapefruit and orange being rather strong. The flavor also is hoppy with good grapefruit juice and orange peel bitterness followed by a moderate balancing malt profile that helped emphasize the fruity nature of this IPA. Lingering citrus hops with a hint of perfume on the palate.

22 oz bomber. Pours a clear coppery orange-amber with a medium sized white head. Beautiful nose of crisp grapefruit and piney resin. Taste of freshly squeezed grapefruit and pine hops. Excellent.

This is a SOLID beer. From the tap at Oldsmar Tap House it pours a golden color with lots of balanced earthy, grassy hops. It’s flavor is a solid, balanced slightly floral bitterness. Kudos to Avery on the political beer. Outstanding.

Ibrew2or3 (8283) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2008
On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Tampa. Pours clear deep copper with off white head. As usual it is being served way too cold to enjoy and I dont have an extra 20 minutes today waiting for it to warm up. The aroma is candy sweet slightly caramelized malts mixed with sweet tangelo, orange peel and a note of pine hops. Its just too darn cold to get a good read of the aroma. The bitterly cold liquid ushers in a very pleasing flavor combination of sweet citrus orange and tangelo juice along with a solid sweet malt backbone. Big bold late addition citrus hop flavors make it seem rich and delicious. Then the hops only becomes moderately bitter into the finish. Terrific IPA. It is too much on the rich and luscious side to be a sessionable type IPA but thats not why Im drinking it.

SDalkoholic (2365) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle from South Bay Drugs. Creates a large foam formation and sticky lacing residue while the beer is a brass colored liquid. Nose is moderately hopped with a background of rye or grained malt. The flavor is somewhat bitter with a notice of citrus west coast hop as it leaves behind a perfume aftertaste.

On tap at Brouwers. Dark golden almost amber in color with a small white head. Strong head retention, very sticky. Strong hop aroma. BIg up front taste with a good balance of malt and hops. Big on malt, big on hops, just the way I like it!! Good balanced aftertaste that has a boozy quality to it. Very good beer, thanks again Avery!!!!!

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bomber. Pours deep, semi-dark golden color with a big foamy white head with impressive lacing. Really nice hoppy aroma on this one. Melon, cantaloupe, some mango. Unique though somewhat familiar (and I thought I didn’t like Cascade hops!) Taste is the same as the aroma. Watermelon with a nice bitterness. This is one of Avery’s better beers.

Sampled from 22-oz bottle, picked up from Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a thin and creamy off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, some pine and citrus zest, a touch of grapefruit and some dark pitted fruits. Taste is full bodied, some carbonation with flavors of heavy citrus, grapefruit, a touch of honey and some caramel malt, Finish is mildly bitter with some citrus and grapefruit flavors.
