This review will require some adjustments after a second bottle, I just know I'm not ready to do it justice, had an IPA before hand.
This beer just explodes with hop aroma, so fresh, to fruity, so citrus, just wonderful. A deep sugary malt is in the back waiting as well.
The pour had more head than you can imagine, 3/4 of a glass of foam will form if you give it a half assed pour. A bright and clean body, completely transparent with a light orange color. So yeah knock a point or two off for not having anything floating in it or a hazy ipa look, shame on you Avery!
The flavor gives me a mix of citrus hops but with a bit more passion fruit. There's a bite to this one that reminds me of a west coast ipa, but the finish turns to a southern hemisphere like beer. I'm not sure if this is the hops or the malt doing this. A lot of nice sugars in the malt give this a nice very balance finish with so much hop focus.
Very very drinkable almost too much at 9.7.
This was bottled in may so at most it was bottled in the last 20 days. Fresh! This is really good stuff but it misses the epic world class levels. Still a worthy beer from Avery and I won't lie...I'd like to see this on tap!
