Pours a clear orange color with a nice white head that forms easily, retains well, and leaves nice lacing.
Nose is pretty WC centric with big citrusy hops and a resinous malt sweetness lurking.
Taste follows. A pretty nice WC style IPA. Grapefruit and pine like hops dominate, but are every so slightly subdued by the tiny bit of age here. The malt presence is right where it should be, lurking in the background while providing backup vocals. There is a slight dirtyness to the hop profile that im not sure i like, but its not incredibly noticeable.
Mouthfeel is solid, right where it should be for the style as far as viscosity, carbonation is perfect, not alot to complain about here. Pretty durned dry.
Drinkability is solid...for those of us that like hops anyway. Could easily rock two bombers of this alone.
Overall, actually a pretty nice DIPA from avery. Nothing they make has ever even come close to rivaling fresh maharaja, but this one is a great effort. If you like WC style DIPA, then give this one a shot.

Poured 22oz bomber into New Belgium globe
A-Pours clear golden amber with rising fizzy three finger white head. Great lacing.
S-Aroma is toasted and caramel malts, intense floral hops, light grass, light herbs, and some pear.

M-Wonderful mouthfeel that has a medium body and low carbonation.
O-overall a great DIPA very smooth and tasty. No date on bottle but tasted fresh.
