Bottle from the first Ava batch from 1/23 - 1/24. Poured into a tulip and the appearance is great. Crystal clear compared to the Double Sunshine that I had two nights ago with a two finger bright white head. The first thing that I notice about the nose is that is has sweet tropical notes followed by citrus and pine. The taste is not quite as balanced as I would like. There seems to be a lot bitter grapefruit coming through especially towards the end and it leaves a lingering bitterness. With that said I wouldn't call it unbalanced and the lingering bitterness is growing on me as I drink. The finish also has a sticky resin/pine quality that is leaving me wanting another sip. Overall this is a really solid IPA. (718 characters)

Great new beer. Not as good as Double Sunshine, but better than Spring Fever. It has a good hop nose and a hoppy smell. Nice color, kind of a thin lacing that pours to a large head when poured straight into the glass. Think most hop heads would rate this beer higher than I have rated it. (288 characters)
