Pours glowing dark golden color. Slightly hazy with a finger of head.

Smells like big tropical fruits, musty, earthy, juicy hops, pineapple, candy like..big grapefruit

Nice hop bomb on the palate with more juiciness, tropical fruits, huge grapefruit again, some sweetness as it warms, malt with more time. Lots of bitterness, very nice.

Bitter and dry feel, enjoyed this one.

Fantastic well hopped IPA

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance- Served a golden orange beer with a one finger white head. The head had moderate retention and faded to give a decent level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was rather sweet but at the same time hoppy as well. It had a base of tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and mango while the hoppy aromas were citrus in nature and of a grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon smell. There were also lighter notes of some caramel sweetness mixed within. Overall rather sweet and pleasant.

Taste – The taste begins more on the sweet side with a flavor of caramel, tangerine, and some mango. With these tastes is a grapefruit hoppiness as well as a bready backbone. As the taste advances the sweetness dims some and the taste bitters more as lemon and pine hop flavors hit the tongue. These flavors take the taste to the end where they are met with some floral notes, leaving a satisfyingly semi-bitter taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the thicker and creamier side with a slightly lower than average level of carbonation. It is quite soothing on the tongue and very nice for the hoppy and lightly fruity flavor of the beer.

Overall – A quite tasty IPA with some nice sweet and hop flavors.

Golden orange with white head and some haze.

Nose is a bit more mellow than I expected it to be. Some grapefruit and piney notes.

Taste makes up for it with just a light caramel character and bready notes that really accentuate the hops. This just blasts the taste buds and finishes dry enough that you really crave another sip. Moouthfeel come off medium with some smooth characteristics amd coates the tongue. Resin notes, biscuity characters and a lingering pine finish just drive this American IPA. What else would I expect from Avery?
