Beer pours a golden color with a little bit of haze from the hops. For an IPA it is fairly brilliant and a nice lacy head forms on the sides of the glass as you drink this one down.

The aroma is a hop bomb. mostly floral and citrus aromas with some grapefruit in the background. It is very well presented and blends together nicely.

The beer starts off crisp with cool and finishes with a little bit kick. It is not lip puckering or overwhelming but instead solid and balanced.

The body is medium.

Overall a solid IPA. It is an IPA that I could have a couple of in a row as it is more on the refreshing side than the kick you in the face side.

My favorite beer overall. A relatively hoppy beer, and definately not for everyone, but if you like hops, you will love this beer.

Living in the east it is fairly hard to come by. Lately I have only been able to find it in cans at Table & Vine in West Springfield, MA

A nice golden orange pour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and sweetness from the malt. The flavor was bitter grapefruit and sweet malts, maybe a tad too much for me, but still an enjoyable IPA. Would like to try more from Avery.

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle poured into a stemless tulip pint. Bottling date 2.11.12.

Look- Medium amber/straw with three fingers of loose eggshell head that falls fairly quickly to a craggy cap, leaving a dense web of lace.

Smell- Lemony, with a backdrop of light biscuit and a hint of resin. As it warms a bit, the citrus zest gets stronger and is joined by a touch of something flowery. Very nice.

Taste- Starts citrusy and grassy, before quickly mellowing out to a graham-cracker-like malty showing on the swallow, with just a hint of grapefruit clinging on throughout. Finish is lightly bitter and tealike, but fairly nondescript. Well-balanced and tasty, but restrained.

Mouthfeel- Medium to full body for the style, feels pretty substantial. Crisp-ish on the sip, mildly dry finish. Fairly easy drinking, but would probably feel cleaner if it was colder.

Overall- Pretty good, better than I was expecting, in fact. Certainly not the best IPA I've had, but it hits all the right notes for an American IPA without being too bold. I'll look for it on tap.
