4.28/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Served in a tulip.

Appearance: Clear amber colored body with little bubbles to it, a slightly off-white head rising to about a quarter inch settling quick after the first sip.

Smell: Light but potent hops. Light in the sense that it comes and goes, but potent that it's an forgettable smell. Raw hops...wish it didn't dissipate so quickly.

Taste: What this brew lacks in smell it beyond makes up for in taste, strong bitterness makes you think it's over 100 ibu's. Floral to the point you think you're eating the hops itself. Wish it was more complex like some Avery's other IPA's but the bitterness is going to be addicting. One sip isn't enough.

Mouth: Medium-heavy carbonation very sticky pine notes at the end. Some might say a dry finish...I think it is borderline perfect.

Overall: A very different take on what I love from Avery. I usually don't mention other beers during my reviews, twenty is a beer in it's own class definitely not superior to Maharaja but definitely worth investing the ten bucks or so on the bottle. Salud!
