Avery IPA on draft with a jerk chicken pineapple cheesy sub = sheer delite.
What, I need to write more? If I must.
A: Clear gold, topped with a pure white, sticky head. Some bubbles rise through the beer and the lacing, as I drain this one, is uniform and cool. The head lasts about 20 minutes.
S: Mostly citrus hops (not a bad thing, really) some malt and an orange smell. Doesn't grab you, but it's basic and to style.
T. This is good. Crisp, bitter citrus hop flavor with a hint of acidity and pine. Alive and mildly harsh, cleansing and refreshing. Aftertaste lingers on the back of my tongue. This is a basic bitter American IPA but a darn good one. Hoppier than some and carries a real "bite". I dug it.
Mouthfeel is sharp from the acidic hops and rough carbonation. Bold. Good!
Again, this went wonderfully with my spicy chicken sub and I'll have it again. Great if you're a hophead looking for a quick fix.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
