22oz into a pint

A - Pours brown in color, very clear. Head formation is awfully strong, thick. Well retained, mocha in color.

S - Lots of pine and resin, a very dank hop nose. The deep hops of simcoe or similar are making it very earthy.

T - Starts off lightly malty, but that doesn't stick around long as a heavy hit of citrus hops adds to it quick. Very smooth. Mid-stream the more resin, earthy hops notes comes in. Then the bitterness grips the tongue, hardcore.

M - Full bodied and creamy. Alcohol warmth is very well hidden but grows as it warms.

O/D - Another very good American DIPA. Really on the deep dark side. A bit filling - obviously full bodied. ABV will sneakup on you. If you like the heavy resinous types of IPA, this is will hit the spot. I'm not sure however it really distinguishes itself.

This beer seems like a sort of updated version of most of their other [excellent] DIPAs. I enjoyed this brew very much and felt it held its own amongst very tough competition. A Simcoe/Cascade combination is definitely one of my favorites, so I wasn't let down. However, if you aren't a fan of Simcoe, I would avoid this beer; but you probably have already experienced a similar effect from Avery's other IPAs. Overall, I like this more than many of the Anniversary batches I have previously had, so kudos to them being able to consistently create new excellent DIPAs!

A-clear and present joy
S-solid IPA hoppiness, pine, citrus, dank...if you're reading this you know
T-smooth and so wanted more..the abv kept me from doing so. will hopefully get some more
M-mmmm
O-really solid beer...been moving towards PA and away from IPA, but this was more than worth the trip.

Happy Anniversary Avery...happy hoplover here!
