Reviewed from notes created on 2/10/11.

Avery IPA pours a golden-yellow with a slight haze to it. The head is pure white and rises to only about half a finger into my snifter. Carbonation bubbles climb at a medium march and the lacing is made up of intricate squiggles.

The smell is mainly of pine-y, grassy, slightly metallic, and resiny hops, heavier on the the grass than anything else. A malt counter in the form of a caramel aroma is present, but in the background. Toasty and biscuit aromas abound. There is just a bit of citrus aroma, but that is way in the back of the bouquet.

The taste reveals a lot more caramel and toasted malt than did the smell. Resiny and grassy hops are still very present, especially on the flat of my tongue and sides of my mouth at the conclusion of the sip. Just a touch of sweet citrus is also a part of the flavor profile.

The mouthfeel is nice and pretty close to standard for an American IPA. There is plenty of hop bite with just enough of a light to medium body to massage the palate of the bitterness of the hops. The carbonation complements the body nicely.

This is a quite drinkable, even sessionable IPA, but not one of my favorites. It is solid all around, but nothing really stands out to me. Good, not great.
