Appearance: Pours with two fingers of dense head which dissipated slightly but was still present. Sticky lacing left behind at each level. Active carbonation is above average for the style. Orange in color that is clean and transparent.

Smell: Saturated citrus, orange peel, and fresh pine greet the drinker. While heavy pine and citrus carry into the body, there is a bright undertone of tropical fruits with accents of mangos, pineapple, and papaya. Caramelized malts provide a sturdy background.

Taste: A touch of bitterness hits immediately, but there is a bouquet of soft fruits dancing on the palate to really pull you in. Light grass and earth sit atop balanced and semi-sweet malts. Some classic west coast bitterness with a great balanced malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: The bitterness is there but is highlight on the palate and takes nothing away from making this a top notch beer drinkability wise. I could drink these all night.

Overall: I would never to hesitate to buy this again if I just want a great IPA. Balanced but enough soft fruits and lingering bitterness to keep you really interested. Very glad to have Avery in my neck of the woods now.
