look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

poured into a pint glass. wow! this beer is extremely clear and light looking. wasn't expecting that! gorgeous white head that laces awesome. beautiful beer for sure.

getting a bit of everything with the aroma of this beer. i can't pick anything out that dominates at all. floral, citrus, pine, fruity...no malt but who cares, its an IPA.

tastes just as it smells. awesome. very balanced (with different hops) pretty darn bitter too.

high carbonation is the only downfall i can find in this beer. but maybe it wouldn't look so good without it?

drinkable beer but if i had a few of these i'd be burping all night long.

very good beer. definitely worth trying if you like IPAs.

4.05/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance- color is a hazy,pale, gold. pours a small amount of white, thin, head. A solid ring of lacing stubbornly clings the glass.

smell- citrus hop and floral hops, rich, malty, burned sugar in there as well.

Taste- Resin, pine, lemongrass, orange peel, hops are balanced by smooth malt flavors.

Mouthfeel- full bodied, medium carbonation, slightly oily from the resin, mild carbonation.

overall- very satisfying and tasty IPA, it won't be a constant repurchase but i definitely see myself buying again.

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic pint (from the brewery)

A-Pours with one finger of foam which dissipated over the first minute or two. Clear straw leaning orange at the wider parts of glass.

S-Piney, citrus, especially lemon. Something is a little floral about it as well.

T-Plenty of citrus here as well with some nice spicy, bitterness. On the finish, I get a pleasant carmel maltiness that stops short of being sweet but balances things out a little.

M-Bitterness lingers a touch. Medium bodied for beer, maybe a touch light compared to the "bigger" IPAs that have shown up in the last few years. Enough carbonation to keep things refreshing.

O-Overall, it's an enjoyable beer. It doesn't live up to some of the others I've had from Avery. I love this brewery and have visited the taproom in Boulder. I'd much prefer Maharaja, which I know isn't quite in the same class.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz brown bottle purchased from Leura Cellars in Leura, Australia. That probably makes it grey as grey can be. According to the deciphered bottling date on the bottle, this was bottled in April this year, so not that old all things considered.

Pours a rather clear and light golden colour, with a fine head of white that persists in wonderfully streaking rings of lace. Carbonation is languid, forming streams of rather fine and slow-moving bubbles. Body is fluid and fairly light. Looks good though.

Nose is really very pleasant. Subdued, but flavoursome hops provide a little resin and pine, with a hint of some dusty citric characters as well. There's a touch of grain malt underneath, that provides a slightly savoury undertone. It's not as potent as it would be if it were super fresh, but it's reasonably good all the same.

Taste is a little more timid, and perhaps a little the worse for wear for its journey. Here the grain character is more pronounced, and it leaved the hops feeling a little bit flat and uninspired. Slight piney tingle sits on the middle, but this devolves to a rather generic bitterness at the end, mingled with a slight honey sweetness on the finish. Feel is smooth, and surprisingly, with a bit of weight behind it. Carbonation is nicely tempered.

Overall, it's a very drinkable IPA, even when a couple of months old. It's clearly well-crafted, and I look forward to having it super-fresh sometime. Until then, this grey-market import will do me nicely.
