on tap-pours an off white head. Color is clear gold. Aroma is hoppy. Taste follows, nice, good carbonation. This is not one of Averys BIG BEERS, which seem to be too much/complex for my tastes. This one is straight forward & very well done.

this was dissappointing. i really liked averys 11 as well as maharaja and hog heaven. but i think i got an older six pack of this. sadly there was no date on the bottle telling me it may have been sitting in the store too long. lingering hops in the aroma. very sweet at first not quite balanced out by a piney finish. i barely finished the bottle.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Pungent kind bud hoppy aroma. very light tea color with a large fluffy white head. Big citrusy hop flavors, but you can taste a lot of malty/grain flavors beneath that. Finishes with a bit of floral sweetness and then leaves a bitter aftertase. A nicely done IPA.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Pours pale copper orange, with a small amount of off-white head that fades to just a little skim. Some lace. A bit undercarbonated. Orange and mango hop aromas, with a nice honey sweetness that seems to be more a part of the hops than the malt. Good full aroma. Medium body that seems on for style. Appropriately bracing hops, giving it an almost chewy character. Some musky and metalic astringency--a bit distracting. That just last for a second though, and there is a nice lingering bitterness between sips. A decent IPA that would be fabulous if it could live up to its aroma.

jefcon (1684) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Burnished gold in the glass with a just-off-white head and lots of lacing. Fantastic aromas of orange, marmalade, rich soapy hops, and tangerine. A little malt on the nose, but not much. Good strong hop bite that is full of fruit and soapy hops. The beer descends into a dry, rather flavorless finish, however -- bitter and a little green and floral. Still, a tremendous IPA for the hops alone.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2006 In the bottle at the Huber Haus IPA tasting. Rich dark gold color. Off-white head. Slight toasted aroma with a weak hop aroma. Strong mid-palate dryness. Hard tartness to the finish. Long slow burn of bitterness at the end. Awesome lacing left in the glass. UPDATE 8/15/6: In the bottle. Pours gold with a gratuitous white head. Aroma has an interesting meaty scent coupled with a strong piney citrus hop smell. Very nice lacing and cloudy good head retention. Great juniper flavor. Nearly gin-like. Citrus lemon, lime and grapefruit flavors round out the thick palate. An all-around good beer.

tourette (225) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2005
A rather simple, and dare I say, boring IPA. Living in California, we have lots of local IPAs to choose from, and this one just isnt very interesting. Its hoppy and there is nothing really wrong with it. But for the price, there is almost always a better choice.

Gorgeous bottle. Like all of the world contained in the bottle. Also--fantastic beer, one of the most incredible IPAs Ive had in a long long time. Rosy and flowery to the taste, aroma, mouth, but still has a heart of hops. Well done.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 A golden pour with nice lacing, a spicy aroma, hints of pine and malt. Upon tasting, a toasty, crystal malty hit, bits of grapefruit, exquisite velvety mouthfeel rounding to a properly bitter lingering finish with a slight grassy undertone. Another winner from Avery.

12 oz bottle pours golden with an offwhite head that lingers and laces well. Aroma is mostly grapefruit, grass, pine, and a touch of malt. Flavor is more of tangerine, a touch of grapefruit, and some caramel malts. Finishes fairly bitter with a little aftertaste. Balanced pretty well on the palate. The hops and malts go hand and hand in this beer. A pretty nice IPA I enjoyed it.
