Pours a firey orange with a nice thick, foamy off white head. Nice lacing. Alright, now I am getting those tropical fruits. Wonderfully sweet and piney. Wonderful tropical fruits like I hoped to find, some bitter pine in the tail end. Think I can sense a little malt hiding underneath everything, but definitely finding it to be hop forward. Flavor brings me back to what I have come to expect from Avery and their IPA's with a bitter musky earth and pine identity. This time, though, I do get the tropical fruits in this. The malt underbelly is there in the flavor too, and needed to counter the bitterness of the hops to a degree. A nice creamy, fuller mouthfeel with good activity. Overall, definitely my favorite IPA I have tried from Avery. Glad I gave it another go around to find what I was missing from it initially. That said, I still find myself not to be too drawn to Avery's approach to IPA; they are good at what they do, just not a fan of the bitter profile they guys do.
