On tap at Brew-Ligion in Murrieta, CA.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight onion aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus and onion flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the onion presence I am getting from the hops used is not that great in my opinion.

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by the hops, which contribute flavors of citrus and tropical fruits along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness. Only some hints of alcohol are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Considering the strength of this beer, it hides its alcohol very well.

Note: Bottled in May 2013

A: Quarter finger head but with nice lacing on a nearly clear copper with gold hues body.

S: pine resin, turpentine, heavy sweet bread malts, orange citrus and floral hops.

T: breads, candied orange, pine resin, earthy hops. simple overall.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. a bit oily, coating the palate.

Overall: I want more from this one, it seemed a little too simple

Poured into an impy nonic a clear medium golden with a large blooming one and a half finger white head atop that left multiple rings of broken chunks behind as it settled.Caramel malts and tropical fruits in the nose,sweet but not overly so.I like the full almost airy feel in the mouth,it went down nicely.Flavors of grilled pineapple and citrus with a tinge of vidalia onion the is a little off putting at first but doesn't overpower like another Colorado brewed beer wich I won't name.It's sweet but not nearly as sweet as way to many of the style,a worthy anniversary beer from a solid brewery.

released in may, I am not sure how much this has faded, being an ipa and all, but if it has, it must have been absolutely incredible, because even in November this is drinking really well. hazy honey color on the pour with a gorgeous white head as thick as cool whip and not fading much at all. ring lacing to boot. the nose is the sweeter, more oily end of the hop spectrum, with a notable alcohol kick and a malt profile that supports the hops without interfering. the flavor is a lot more bitter than the nose, especially in the finish, but I still get a whole range of sweeter fruity hops on the front end. its got a island vibe to it, not pineapple in that way, but it has an airy lightness to it for the style that is really appetizing. easy drinking for its depth, soft in feel but very well carbonated. its not filling at all, and the buzz comes on slow. the last several years of this series have all been outstanding, but this may be the pick of the lot. in my opinion more complex than some of the other big avery ipas.

Pours with a small head of white foam on a clear, copper colored body. The head settles fairly quickly and lease excellent lace. An aroma of pungent pine and grapefruit. Sweet, thick malt up front with notes of caramel and pine. Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish. Definitely a malt forward DIPA, but the hop character is still nice.

Bottled May 2013

Pours an effervescent amber/copper with 3 fingers of egg-shell colored head. Insane lacing & head retention

S: Bready, leafy hops, pine & mango

T: Pineapple, breadyness, pineyness & leafy hops up front. Leafy hops, grapefruit & a little bit of breadyness & pears as this warms, a little bit of orange peel as well. Finishes with pineapple, grapefruit & leafiness with a touch of passion fruit, plus a bit of cattyness

MF: Chewy, low carbonation, pretty good balance

A good DIPA would've loved to try this fresh, but pretty darn hoppy as it is. Pretty good, liked this better than some of the more recent Anniversary offerings. Drinks pretty easy, despite the ABV

This pours a dark orangey amber in the St. Bernardus goblet. Lovely aroma of fresh sawdust and gardenias, if you use your imagination a little. Sharp and sparkly mouthfeel.

Powerful flavors, but the hop bitterness is reined in slightly. Medium body but on the acidic side. Quite hot with alcohol. Warmly toned with malt, but it sharpens up after the initial glow. This is really a mix of hoppy flavors that is unlike any DIPA I've encountered. It's fruity, then orangey, then the resiny sharpness, and the mango, and the piney pineapple. Lots of aromatics give it a more drinkable and interesting character, but it's still a wallop of crazy flavors. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Olive Tree Market in OB.
