Avery India Pale Ale pours a clear light amber color with a creamy, white head on top. The foam dissolves down to a thick ring around the surface leaving behind lines and spots of lace on the glass. A steady flurry of bubbles rises up to the surface.
The aroma is hoppy with floral notes of tropical fruit. Orange, pineapple, grass and a touch of pine are all present.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is slick on the palate, dry with a firm carbonated fizz. The flavor is like the aroma with hoppy tropical notes of grapefruit and orange with a little pine mixed in. Good pale malt backbone with enough sweet caramel to balance out the hops. It finishes mildly bitter. Once gone the citrus hops linger on the palate.
This is a tasty, well balanced easy drinking beer. I like that it's now available in cans.

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.
