Poured from 12 oz. can into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and somewhat hazy golden orange with lots of rising bubbles. Solid three fingers of white head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: Aroma is a nice mix of citrus and floral hops. Hints of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, and lemon. Floral and grassy hops with a little pine resin. Backing of sweet bready malts with hints of caramel, toffee, and biscuit. Also a little candy like sweetness. A solid citrus forward smell overall.

Taste: Like it smells, a nice ripe citrus taste with some floral hops. Notes of citrus orange, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, apricot, and mango. Earthy, floral hop taste with a little spicy resin lingering. Solid presence of bready malts with some notes of sweet caramel, toffee, yeast, biscuit, and crackers. Taste is pretty hop forward and fairly bitter. Tastes juicy and good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy and juicy. Finishes pretty dry.

Overall: A very solid American IPA. Good ripe citrus and floral flavors. Bold hops with a nice soft malt backing.

Avery "IPA"
Served on-draught into a weissbier glass. Reviewed from notes. Paired with chicken wings at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Colorado.

A: Pours a half finger head of nice cream, good thickness, and above average retention. Colour is a clear copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Pleasant floral and somewhat piney hops. Clean malts. A mild to moderate strength aroma.

T: Piney and lightly citrusy/floral hops. Clean malts provide the unobtrusive foundation. Enjoyable but limited by its simplicity. Some nice cream on the open. Crisp and pleasant, but not subtle or complex. I do like it in a general sense, but there's nothing unique or special here.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Crisp. Some nice cream. Suits the flavours pretty well, but doesn't feel custom-tailored to them. Adequately carbonated. Too wet; somewhat watery actually.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but far from exceptional. I like it but it misses the mark of a true balanced IPA. It's not bold or experimental. Highly priced to boot. I wouldn't get it again, but if you're looking for a decent little IPA to have with a meal, it fits the bill.
