This is truly an amazing beer.
This Kingly brew pours a royal reddish pale color, like one of the colors of the setting sun. Thw setting sun leaves an off white head like the clouds of the day.
Taking the chill off the brew makes it smooth on my palate.
The aroma is of the pines of Colorado. A little soapy too. Lemon peel shines too.
The flavor is the same, very piney. Very unique. Very Lemon peel citrus. Not many brewries can make it like this. A little sweet (very little sweetness) to it. I think the warmer it gets the more the sweetness comes out.
Full bodied but very smooth and crisp.
Very drinkable! A little too drinkable. I could have 5 of these. Definently a royal brew. Thank you Avery. The Lord bless the hop harvest.

This is a very good beer, but I have had better. Maybe I have held on to this one too long, but it was a bit too malty for my taste. Although the bottle promotes the balance and "control" like a raja of both hops and malts. I feel like the malts are too intense for the beer. Well balanced but for the style I would say medium to high ratings.
Color: Dark bronze, but with some transparency, also a very low amount of head and lacing.
Smell: Not as intense as a West Coast IPA. Maybe that is my favorite style?
Taste: Balanced, I got this one on sale for a super deal so I figured I would try it, but I would not pay what the original price reflected.
Overall: A Solid beer, well balanced, not as much hops going on as I would like but its not a bad beer in any regard. But, to me there are much better in the same price range.
