Large, four-finger white foamy head. Awesome lacing and brilliant clarity in the orange brew.

Heavy bitter citrus along with bready apple and roasty banana.

Very bitter, but refreshing and sticky. Nothing off putting. Heavy grapefruit and herbal flavors. Light carbonation, too.

A slight mess between the scent and flavor; the scent detracts from the flavor, they're nothing alike. Avery's IPA is very refreshing and enjoyable, but lacks smooth transitions. It hits, but could hit harder. Recommended.

Bottle into a tulip.

Shadowy rose-orange, hazed to the point of near-opacity. One finger of creamy white foam settles atop and descends pretty quickly, leaving behind a frothy ring.

Nice floral notes – roses and orange blossoms – meet orange slices, tangerine peel, honey and biscuits. This bottle might be a little old, so the malts are larger and the hops more subdued than usual, but it’s created a nice balance in the aroma.

Same deal here: overripe oranges, tangerine pith, potpourri-like floral notes. Nice bitterness settles on the sides of the tongue. Honey and biscuits from the malt, but the finish is nicely dry.

Soft medium-light body. Carbonation is mild, just a soft massage. Tiny hint of fizz. No alcohol.

Not bad, not great. A pretty standard IPA from Avery.

A- murky yellowish color with a slight greenish hue. One finger head that fades quickly leaves spotty lacing.

S- dank citrus hop aroma. Not much more.

T- bittersweet. A dank bitterness starts off the taste with a sweet earth taste to follow. Something is just a bit off. But still good.

M- dry. Medium carb. Finishes real dry.

O- ok. Not bad, not great. Drinkable but have had better.
I would classify as an APA, due to lack of malt presence. Light very complex, seems like it would be smooth due to the smell then smacks you with an unbalanced bitterness.
