look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass.
Appearance: Pours an opaque light golden color with mild orange highlights. Features a 3-4 finger creamy white head. Excellent head retention and lacing.
Smell: Sweet floral and citrus hops with a light hint of malt in the background. Smells a bit sweet.
Taste: Grapefruit and pine up front with toasted malt in the middle and more bitter grapefruit at the finish. Very bitter finish - not a negative. The taste is not reflected in the aroma. I detect almost no sweetness in the taste whatsoever.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: High drinkability. You could knock back a few without much difficulty.
Overall: Solid IPA. Not the best in class but worth trying.

poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Bottled 1/29/14.
A - Hazy orangish color with 1 finger white head. Shorter retention and small spotty lacing.
S - Aggressive pine aroma from NW coast hops and some dankness. Sweet caramel malts.
T - Initial piney hops up front, rather smooth bitterness, not much bite. Mild caramel malt sweetness. Finish is mostly bitter. Balanced and tasty, but not ground breaking.
M - Some carbonation with a medium body that is oily and slick.
O - Nice IPA that is somewhat normal today. If this was the IPA on tap I would certainly order it. No need to revisit in bottles.

Served in a large (15.5 oz) brandy snifter.
A - Pours with a small, off-white head of about one finger that fades quickly. A rich amber in color with very sticky white lacing. No haze whatsoever.
S - Very floral with minimal hops. Some very subtle grapefruit and a very slight booziness, but nothing overpowering or excessive.
T - Malty on the front with the hop character gradually coming through in a very nice balance. More grapefruit here as well, though it's not very powerful. A little bit of biscuit-like quality as well. Nothing that'll blow hopheads away, but still a very tasty beer. Leaves a slight bitterness in the mouth as well as a bit of roasted malt.
M - Thin with a slight burn from the alcohol and some sharpness from the carbonation.
O - It's not the most unique IPA, but it's a very pleasant experience overall. This is my first beer from Avery Brewing. I will likely pick this up again, and am also curious about their other offerings. It's not a beer to go hunt down, but if you come across it, it's definitely worth a try.

Just showed up in Wisconsin so I thought I would give it a shot and buy a 6, looks like it was bottled in late January.
Pours a clear copper, I assume this is filtered based on how crazy clear it is, half finger of white head, leaving spotty lacing.
Smell is pine, bready and biscuit malt, caramel, herbal hop, some grapefruit comes through
Taste is heavy pine, nice bready and bicuity malt, caramel and toffee, grapefruit bitterness, a few other citrus notes come through mainly lemon and orange, finishes off with piney bitterness and a doughy malt.
Mouthfeel is medium, heavy carbonation, pretty dry.
Really well crafted beer here, it reminds me of DFH 90 min just a smaller version of that (never had 60min so cant compare to that)
A lot heavier on the pine then the citrus and tropical hops. It is extremely well put together, and well I can pretty much assure you that you have tasted this one before regardless of you have had it or not. But never the less a decent beer that I will enjoy from time to time! Hope the cans hit this area, I could see my self picking this up more in cans for the beach or something.
