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.

Frothy, sticky yellow-white head on a reddish-golden body.

Nose is sweet and tart hops. Grapefruit, lemon and a little mango.

Flavor is tart, juicy and fruity. Super light malt body, with just enough residual sweetness to give it a minimal backbone. Hops are certainly front and center, but not really bitter. Huge flavor and aroma, low on bittering, I would guess.

Mouthfeel is tart, zesty, slightly stripping and sticky.

Overall, this is a great beer. I am a big fan of the Maharajah, and this seems to be cut from the same cloth.

I drank this one at cellar temperature in a tulip.

A dense, four-finger off-white head forms no matter how gradually I fill my glass. Thick, sudsy foam. The body's a bright, transparent golden amber-orange.

The aroma is hoppy, in more of a juicy sweet way than in a bitter pine way. There are some herbal notes, along with a little vanilla, which is an unexpected, but pleasant, addition. It kinda smells like flowers! Honey, and a tangy orange scent are there as well. A very good aroma.

Bitterness is way toned down for a DIPA. Quite a malty flavor that begins with some citric hops, but turns into an aftertaste of biscuity breadiness accompanied by some nice herbal bitternes. It's a sweeter, less bitter example of the style. In addition to smelling floral, it oddly TASTES somewhat flora, if that makes any sense. I also think I pick up on a hint of vanilla... pretty nice.

The feel is kind of light and thin for a DIPA, with understated carbonation. It works pretty good for this beer though, as it goes down smooth.

A fairly unique DIPA that doesn't bombard one with bitterness.
