I really enjoyed the Avery IPA. I don't think that I've actually had an Avery that I didn't like. This IPA offering was a dark, hazy amber with a large off-white head. There was a huge amount of lacing.
The aroma was hops, hops, and more hops. There was a hint of the yeast as well as some fruitiness of a date or fig nature. The taste was wonderfully hoppy but balanced with some fruitiness, including what tasted to me like a little like grapefruit. There is a nice finish of sweet malt that balances the huge hops hit.
This is a full-bodied cleansing experience in the mouth. It is slighty thick in texture and, of course, there is a lingering bitterness. I could drink a few of these. In fact, I bought a case to allow myself that pleasure.
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.
