onceblind (11147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Clear brilliant golden with a foamy white head. Citrusy nose that’s a bit light overall. The flavor is clean and bright with a bright orange rind and leafy hop flavor that lasts till the finish, letting the blonde and pale ale malt only get biscuity at the end.

4.1
ineedbeer (2330) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at brewery. Aroma has a nice medium hop aroma with some light pale male character. Nice pine character with balanced citrus and a bit of green hop aroma. Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head with great retention and lacing. Flavor starts with a light cracker malt flavor but quickly becomes hippy with lots of pine and citrus. Hop flavor has some green character and spiciness to it as well. Moderately strong bitterness with lingering resin and a touch of pale malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall another nice beer from Avery. Lots of hop character with a nice balanced malt backbone.

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tap room exclusive at Avery's. Very clear yellow pout with a light white head. Very hoppy, but the hop tastes quite fresh. I'm not a huge fan of IPAs but it's quite mild, not overly bitter.

3.4
3fourths (9381) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pale gold and effervescent. Fuggle-like herbal / mossy noble hop aroma on first impression. I’m usually not a fan of Chinook hops but I find them much more like EKG (minus the juiciness) and Fuggle (minus the earthy / mushroom character) here... some green vegetable leafy bitter notes with an kind of moss, dank, green, herbaceousness. Cleanly fermented with a medium body, the hop acids aren’t overbearing though the malt and carbonation are rough and grating (Avery’s MO), though not to an extent seen in their flagship IPA. Medium sweetness, highly bitter. Lingering resin and orange jelly finish. A treat to smell.
