look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.

First had at Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing, Valencia, Calif., poured from 12-oz. bottle into tumbler. Befitting an IPA from neither coast, this must be characterized as a classic American IPA.
