I've commented before on how just about any brewery can pump out a decent-tasting IPA (breweries really have to try to make an unpalatable IPA), but few can make an outstanding one. That said, Avery makes my no-contest favorite IPA around. Piney hops with little citrus and a heavy malt presence that compliments (rather than counters - malts and hops are not opposites, we must stop talking about beer like this!) the hop bitterness. Unlike most IPAs, this finishes wet, rather than the typical dry bitterness of most. The malt gives this a thicker, sticky mouthfeel more redolent of a DIPA than an IPA.
I've been drinking this for years from the bottle. The can tastes just as great and is an even better reason to pick it up.
