look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A - light copper, good two fingers of head, great lacing all the way down portraying freshness.
S - grapefruit and pineapple up front. Big sweet smell, slight hops, malt and citrus also preset.
T - nice level of bitterness, hops at the end, very sweet notes throughout, get breast malts and barley as well.
M - smooth but seems light a lighter IPA. It finishes dry and clean, very drinkable.
O - enjoyed this one, can definitley drink multiples without it being overpowering. Nice summer IPA. I would reccomend this one.

Avery Brewing Company - Avery India Pale Ale (IPA) - 12fl oz can

Look - Pours slight haze yellow with a tint of copper. Nice full soapy head. Great sticky lacing. Minimal carbonation.

Smell - Malty, bready, light citrus (grapefruit) hop overtones here.

Taste - Carbonated malt with a slight hope have and a light, sweet finish. Was expecting a bit more here, a bit low-key.

Mouthfeel - Sticky malts and slight lingering hops. Good drinkability.

Overall - Not bad, not amazing. Smooth and drinkable, but not a hardcore IPA.

Avery IPA pours a light copper color with a slightly hazy body. Incredible lacing rules the glass. Smell is a 5 because the hops are so pungent. Based off of that there is almost no way that there can be a letdown with the taste. As expected there is not. I am really digging the hops blend here and the result is an explosion of flavor. Citrus notes, especially grapefruit are apparent. The chinook hops are more passive here which is fine with me. This one is not offensive at all in terms of mouthfeel and the aftertaste is clean. It leaves you wanting another sip immediately. I'd have to say that this is one of the better IPAs that I have encountered in awhile.

From a bottle to a pint glass.

Pours a perfect golden color with three fingers of white head. Dies down, but keeps a decent head throughout.

Smells like a very soft IPA. Picking up the regular hops and pine, but it’s not overpowering like in others.

Very sweet and mellow. There’s a lot of carbonation, and the hop presence is there, but it’s also very balanced. Really enjoyable. V

ery light bodies. Mouthfeel is sort of silky. Very well carbonated.

Overall it was a solid beer. Not trying to do anything overly impressive, but not shallow either. I am a big Avery fan, and even though I’m not a fan of IPA’s, I’m pretty impressed by this one.
