From a bottle, pours a light amber, small bit of off-white head that leaves some slight lacing. Malt-forward on the nose, caramel, toffee, roasted sugars, a little biscuit. Not so much getting pines as advertised, even as it warms up. Taste follows through as it smells, some mild hop bitterness that barely comes out at the end. Some citrus pith peaks up in there, too. Not that memorable for me, but for those that light a sweeter/drier IPA, one to look for.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a light amber color, with a clear look, and a small head with a little bit of lacing.

This one smells like pine, grass, grapefruit pith, and some orange rind. Smells like a bitter bomb of an IPA. Can't wait.

This tastes like a very well-attenuated, crisp and dry IPA. There's bitter pine, there's grassiness, there's grass, there bitter earthy grapefruit rind. There's only a minimal sweetness, it's a dry beast.

This is medium bodied, with a dry and crisp mouthfeel.

A surprisingly tasty treat here.

Thanks Dave.

Copper body with a small, off-white head. Hop, pine, biscuit aroma. Similar flavor. Moderate bitterness. Malty aftertaste. Good drinkability, just not what I'm looking for in an IPA.

Picked up this beer a few weeks back, having never had this before. I like IPA's a lot but this one seemed a bit too "typical" to me as there wasn't much of anything outstanding about it. The aroma was not too potent and because the alcohol wasn't that strong, this went down relatively easily while having enough potency to it to not feel weak.

The pout to this was decent as the beer had a copper hue, a bit of sediment floating in it, and a moderate head that settled quickly. Not a lot of rings of lacing left as I worked my way through this and as to be expected, the scents that I could discern were pine and citrus. Couldn't taste the coriander like some others on here did and the hops tended towards the earthy side. A bit of stickiness could be found in the aftertaste and there was just enough carbonation to keep this balanced beer lively.

Had I had another, I probably would have felt the alcohol kick in. As it was, this was perfectly fine to have by itself but with so many other IPA's out there, there wasn't anything about this that stood out. It's a middling beer in a very crowded category but at the same time, there wasn't anything not to like about it. Not a bad first impression from Lavery.
