Enjoyed from the 12 oz can via a friend from work---Thanks Randy!
This decent IPA pours a beautiful amber tinged golden color with an
excellent head of white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thick pooling layer,
and features some excellent soapy lacing. Nose of the usual suspects---pine,
lemon, light breaded malts, and sweet caramel malts. Flavors follow the
nose with pine and lemon tinged hop notes tossed into a solid bill of caramel
and light breaded notes with a lingering piney hop laden finish. Nice mouth
feel; smooth, medium body, medium carbonation that is lively, and a bitter
finish that is balanced by a solid malt backbone.

Overall a solid representation of the style.

Cheers

Great pour with golden color and nice white foam. With a smooth semi sweet taste and aroma. A great everyday I.P.A. flavor and taste are very nice and grow on you with great results. Absolutely case worthy I.P.A.

Poured from a can dated12/2/16. A hazy yellow orange with a white head that fades quickly.
Aroma is pine, citrus and sweet malt.
Taste matches.
Mouthful is thin, good carbonation.
IMHO, not much more than an average IPA. Refreshing.

Has a hazy blonde appearance, with a bubbly and soapy 2 finger head. The lace it leaves is extraordinary.

Nose is of some fresh hops, slight breadiness, citrus rind.

Flavor is piney and citrusy both, but a bit too much resin for me. Tons of bitterness on the finish, like sucking alcoholic grapefruit rinds, and touch of cracker.

Feel is oily and resiny, pretty carbonated overall.

Avery's IPA is a decent beer but for me it's just too resiny and bitter to be enjoyable.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is heavy citrus and pine. The taste follows the nose. An excellent beer.

Pours a hazy copper with a short lived, short white head

Smells floral malty and citrus

Taste sweet malt and resiny pine with light citrus. Drier short finish. Lighter side of medium body with creamy feeling medium carbonation.
