Bottle into a tulip.
Shadowy rose-orange, hazed to the point of near-opacity. One finger of creamy white foam settles atop and descends pretty quickly, leaving behind a frothy ring.
Nice floral notes – roses and orange blossoms – meet orange slices, tangerine peel, honey and biscuits. This bottle might be a little old, so the malts are larger and the hops more subdued than usual, but it’s created a nice balance in the aroma.
Same deal here: overripe oranges, tangerine pith, potpourri-like floral notes. Nice bitterness settles on the sides of the tongue. Honey and biscuits from the malt, but the finish is nicely dry.
Soft medium-light body. Carbonation is mild, just a soft massage. Tiny hint of fizz. No alcohol.
Not bad, not great. A pretty standard IPA from Avery.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
