Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #34 (Nov 2009):
Pale orangey color with a mild haze, solid crowning of head from a stiff pour. The aroma is so hoppy that citric and mint hold the nose hard. Smooth medium body drops a deep smoothness, malt stays strong with bready and biscuit flavor to start ... then the hops come. Bitterness rides that fine line between aggressive and simply being on top as it lets the malt flavors through yet slowly pummels the palate with a carefully gauged bitterness of citric peel and wildflowers. Sure, there is a touch of heat in the throat from the alcohol, even some ripe tropical fruit, but it does not rise above the hops. Orange peel, peaches and passion fruit on the palate. Finishes bitter with a breath of alcohol and mint from the hops.
My oh my, Avery has found the true path of hop brilliance.
