Sampled at Birreria Paradiso in DC, shortly after the Innaugural. Served in a pint tumbler, it was light copper-amber. The nose on this brew was unbelievable. Citrus (to say the least), lemony, floral, with enormous hits of lemon grass. Pure pleasure to inhale.
It tasted good too, just enough malt backbone to be present. If you could put a color on this hop flavor, it would be bright white. Mouthfeel was light to medium. This stuff is light on the tongue, clean and bright and yummy.
It's too strong a brew to quaff many, but as a delightful sipper, it's great. Paired well with a gourmet 4-cheese pizza. Drinkability would have to be good or better, I sure wanted to drink more! Avery delivered a hop-head's ideal salute to our new Prez.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Hazy, semi translucent orange with a foamy white head.
S: Nose is like an old ale. A really old ale. Alcohol, old malt and grains, orange, strong hop character, but overshadowed by the oldness of the smell, probably because it's three years old and under 9% abv. Also, I'm sure it's a very hoppy style.
T: Grass, pine, orange, bitter citric and floral notes.
M: Medium bodied, feels like an IPA.
O: It actually tastes good, but because of the age Im not willing to drink more than a couple small sips. I would imagine a fresh bottle being excellent, for which reason I am giving it these ratings.
