3.45/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Presentation: Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz. bottle with a "new" label different from the picture.
A: Slightly hazy golden amber. Decent 1 finger, light, off-white colored head. Minimal lacing.
S: Mostly bready with a mild background of citrus and pine.
T&M: Slightly better hop character than the nose. Citrus, pine, and earthy hops that is well-balanced with the caramel base malts. Semi-dry finish on a light to medium bodied ale.
Goes down very easy but not the most exciting IPA around. Typical good quality from Avery. Maybe it's the new label, but they may have changed the recipe on this. I thought it was better before, but way too long ago for me to confirm.

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.
