Pours hazy amber color with a massive foamy 2-3 finger beige head that faded very slowly and was packed with big bubbles, leaving great lacing with rings of foam going down and a layer on top.

Yeah, it’s hoppy from the start and I could smell it 8 inches from the glass – nice; smells of juicy citrus hops, grapefruit, coriander, tangerine, orange peel, maybe some pineapple, piney hops, fruit salad (yummy, yummy), caramel, grains and brown sugar; hints of flowers and mango come through at times, and there’s just enough malt backbone in the nose to make this smell great. Really well done.

Tastes much like the nose, with a juicy citrus hops hitting first, followed by oily grapefruit, sweet malt, pineapple, coriander, orange peel, lemon zest, piney hops, caramel, toasted grains, brown sugar, tea leaf, herbs, light spices and then a bready flavor that’s like chalky yeast. The flavor has more malt than the nose and it tames the hops a bit and allows the alcohol to show through; the aftertaste is bitter and almost chocolatey, which is odd considering all the hop attack up front on the senses.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, with mild carbonation, a buttery feel for such a dense brew, and a bitter yet sweet aftertaste that slides down pretty easy considering the ABV is always present. Borders on being a slow sipper like a Barleywine, but tasty enough to have to hold back from drinking it too fast.

Overall it was a very good beer, and one I would definitely have again. I may buy another bottle since it’s a limited release and I enjoyed it. Congrats on 20 years Avery, well done.
