Appearance- Beautiful pale golden color with a 2 finger pearl white head that leaves nice lacing all the way down the glass.
Smell- Mostly a citrusy, floral hops smell that will make a hophead drool, not overly complex but not simple either, slight hint of pale malts in the background.
Taste- begins with a light, bready malt flavor that quickly gives way to a powerhouse hop taste. The hops are floral, earthy, slightly citrusy like lemon peel, and very oily and resiny, definately a hophead's ipa not for the faint of heart. The alcohol is slightly noticeable but in an IPA it probably should be. It finishes with a dry, somewhat bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- Smooth and dry, with a somewhat high amount of carbonation, but that makes it crisp and easier to drink
drinkability- this is a bitter beer, but its not so bitter that it really numbs your tastebuds, this could be a good session IPA(if there is such a thing) and the drinkability is high for the style in general.
Overall an excellent rendition of an IPA, somewhat balanced and quite drinkable.

Served in a large (15.5 oz) brandy snifter.
A - Pours with a small, off-white head of about one finger that fades quickly. A rich amber in color with very sticky white lacing. No haze whatsoever.
S - Very floral with minimal hops. Some very subtle grapefruit and a very slight booziness, but nothing overpowering or excessive.
T - Malty on the front with the hop character gradually coming through in a very nice balance. More grapefruit here as well, though it's not very powerful. A little bit of biscuit-like quality as well. Nothing that'll blow hopheads away, but still a very tasty beer. Leaves a slight bitterness in the mouth as well as a bit of roasted malt.
M - Thin with a slight burn from the alcohol and some sharpness from the carbonation.
O - It's not the most unique IPA, but it's a very pleasant experience overall. This is my first beer from Avery Brewing. I will likely pick this up again, and am also curious about their other offerings. It's not a beer to go hunt down, but if you come across it, it's definitely worth a try.

Just showed up in Wisconsin so I thought I would give it a shot and buy a 6, looks like it was bottled in late January.
Pours a clear copper, I assume this is filtered based on how crazy clear it is, half finger of white head, leaving spotty lacing.
Smell is pine, bready and biscuit malt, caramel, herbal hop, some grapefruit comes through
Taste is heavy pine, nice bready and bicuity malt, caramel and toffee, grapefruit bitterness, a few other citrus notes come through mainly lemon and orange, finishes off with piney bitterness and a doughy malt.
Mouthfeel is medium, heavy carbonation, pretty dry.
Really well crafted beer here, it reminds me of DFH 90 min just a smaller version of that (never had 60min so cant compare to that)
A lot heavier on the pine then the citrus and tropical hops. It is extremely well put together, and well I can pretty much assure you that you have tasted this one before regardless of you have had it or not. But never the less a decent beer that I will enjoy from time to time! Hope the cans hit this area, I could see my self picking this up more in cans for the beach or something.
