3.38/5 rDev -12.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance- Clear amber brown, very bubbly, and a solid one finger head that sticks around.
Aroma-Not much here besides pine and some malty sweetness.
Taste-Pine and grapefruit hit the tongue at first providing a bitter jolt. On the back end caramel malts provide balance at first, but it started to taste buttery and unpleasant. I really think this may have been sitting on tap too long or something considering the buttery taste and the lack hop flavors than pine.
Feel- A very bitter beer that leaves an astringency long after a sip. Medium bodied and very carbonated.
Overall- Like I said this may have been old so I feel bad judging it harshly considering that it has good rating. Even then it wasn't a bad beer by any means, but it feel just short of good. I'll be trying to see if I can find this fresh so I can know for sure. Hopefully Im right and it proves me wrong.

2.91/5 rDev -24.6%

Pours a clear golden with little head and no lacing. Almost no detectable aroma. A Budweiser initial taste followed by a very bitter aftertaste. Poorly balanced and thin. Avery can make a delicious IPA (See Avery 20th Aniversary IPA). In fairness, this IPA seems to be widely variable from one 6-pack to another. It is not a big seller and I suspect that it is sometimes quite old. Not the best IPA.

4.11/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Presentation: It was poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into pint glass. The label has no abv info.
Appearance: Avery IPA has an orange tan body with some fine sediment. On top is about a one fingers thick, light tan head which fades quickly to just a thin film that sticks to the edge of the glass.
Smell: The nose has a big fruity and juicy hop presence with loads of tropical fruit, orange rind and sweet malt with a hint of bread yeast.
Tast/palate: It’s flavor first hits you with big juicy hops right up front. The malt offers some sweetness for balance before a big citrus rind/pith like bitterness slowly sneaks in on the sides and lingers on palate. The palate feels fairly full and there is just enough carbonation to give it some lift.
