3.83/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Looks good, hazy deep amber. One finger head on a fairly gentle pour. Receded to leave a nice ring and somewhat sparse yet sticky sheets of lacings.

Bready malt, some caramel sweetness and a touch of biscuit. Decent hop nose as well, grapefruit, papaya and pine. Somewhat subdued, may not be the freshest sample (no freshness or bottles on date) but sitll solid, fruity hop aroma with noticeable underlying bitterness.

Nice malts, much like in the nose. No real surprise in the hops either, nice bitterness, more aroma hops would be nice, pine seems to have taken over, with lesser citrus and tropical fruiit flavour. Nice tea like astringent flavour lingers at the finish.

A nice, almost medium bodied IPA. Would love the chance to try a fresh sample to see if there is more of an aroma hop presence, as is the bittering hops are overbalancing the aroma hops. Nice malt backbone, and finishes with a nice astringent finish making it very easy to back for more.

Very drinkable, and recommended to fans of IPAs. Pretty typical of the style, and as sessionable as any 6.3% abv beers come. Ill be trying this one again, and hop for a fresher, more aromatic sample that would turn this good beer into a great one.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours nice and smooth with a golden brown, but somewhat lightly yellow body. Lighter color than most ipas in my opinion. Small one finger head and nice lace on the glass.

Not too complex in the nose, nice herbal hops and grapefruitiness to it. A little watery in the smell.

The taste was better than expected, very citrusy (grapefruits), and nice hops with some toasted malt bitterness coming through at the end. Intriguingly creamy?

Big carbonation and very drinkable.
I drink a lot of ipas, and this is somehow different, but hard to put my finger on how. Not the greatest brew ever, but good for sure.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a fine one finger ivory head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, citrus hops, light orange family citrus. Flavor is rich caramel and bready malt, resiny pine and citrus hops, nice lingering pine and mildly citrus hop bitterness. Medium body with a a light creaminess. A quite nicely balanced and smooth IPA. Nice hop bill with more pine influence but good citrus too. Great tasting malt support body. This may be an older bottle, not confident about the store I bought it from; kudos for the healthy hop flavor is has been sitting for a while. Enjoyable.

It appears this brew has been around for quite a while, but this is the first I have found it in my market. Having lived in Ft. Collins many years ago, I was really excited to try this Avery. However, I am quite underwhelmed. The aroma is bready, slightly floral, with a bit of orange and pine. For an IPA it is more sweet than I had expected. The finish is very sharp, more so than I am used to, but not in a good way. I doubt I will be purchasing this one again. I give it a rank of around 40 in my top 50 IPAs.
