Pours a beautiful golden orange/brown. A gentle pour allows for a small head to form that sticks around for the duration. Smells wonderful, mostly fruity/peachy notes with a lot of grassy/piney/citrusy hops. Sweet malt backbone comes in at the end. Tastes very similar to the smell... sweetness/fruityness up front, very much a peachy flavor, followed immediately by citrus hops and piney hops, and then finishes with its malt character and just a touch of alcohol warmth. Very good.

Overall I really enjoyed this one. Another solid offering from Avery. For the price of $7.49, it is well worth trying around NC. A+

Pours a clear light orange with two fingers thick white head, settling to a thin layer with splotches of thick lace behind. Smell: apricot, honey, grapefruit, bready note. Taste: peach, spiciness, pear-ish softness, grapefruit. Standard, delicious, drying finish.

A vigorous pour results in a thin half finger head above a rich clear amber hue. Retention is actually not very good but it manages to leave lots of attractive lacing on the glass.

Muted aroma, sweet honey malt with attractive pine and citrus fruit hop character, notes of red berries and nectarines are in there too.

Malts lay down a solid syrupy sweet bready and biscuit foundation ,relatively clean before the hop flavors of pine, pears and dark orange citrus comes in. Some sweet onion notes but I kinda like that. Not very bitter, malt lays down heavily and carries through with sweetness in the finish.

Average carbonation with a hefty body. Creamy and easy to drink, the alcohol feels less than what's on the label. Rather sticky but easy to put away.

An easy to drink IPA but not very big on the aroma or flavor, overly sweet though the hops are just enough to balance. Avery isn't big on IPAs in general but everything else they do is great, cheers to another twenty years.

Appearance: pours a clear orange color with a 2" head that lingers around a while. Nice lace sticks to the glass.

Smell: pine, orange, and grapefruit tones are pleasant on the nose.

Taste: nice malty start with grapefruit, orange, pear, caramel, and a piney bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden here, but there is some warmth late in the taste.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Light crispness to start, smoother and a bit dry at the finish. Surprisingly short lasting aftertaste here.

Overall: this is a well balanced and nicely drinkable beer. As an anniversary beer, I expected a bit more uniqueness, but it does stay true to the DIPA style in a straightforward way.
