3.93/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: A nice fluffy white 2 finger head appears and fades semi slowly over a crystal clear tan golden orange color. The head leaves a slight lacing and Belgian pillowy fluffy mounds as it fades.

N: Some nice tropical fruit hops, aromatic, some earthy bitter tones, the hops are there but still somewhat lighter. There's also some sweet malts, almost a caramel malt and touch of nougat, the aged hop aroma despite that this just showed up in the store today (no date on the bottle).

T: Tastes mostly as it smelled. Starts with some nice hops, tropical fruits, some citrus and orange, some earthy bitterness, somewhat bitter, not too heavy but its def pretty bitter. A little spicy hop character too. Again with the slight nougat aged hop flavor. All this blends with a slight crisp malt backbone, touch of crystal malts, and pale malts, etc. A good example of East Coast IPA despite being from CO. Hops and malts blended well. I also get a slight fruit quality, almost Belgian yeast fruit flavors.

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

F: FInishes pretty bitter and very slightly astringent. It's got lots more spicy and earthy hops with a little bit of the lingering citrus and orange, and even a little musty hop resins late (with the astringency). The finish is very long too, and is pretty dry.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bumblebee yellow-amber. The beer is perfectly clear with a small number of fine floaters that resemble grapefruit pulp. The head is impressive. It's huge, almost pure white, and remains mountainous in the center, while sinking at the edges. Multiple rings of delicate lace put the appearance score over the top. An excellent look!

The nose is all about Styrian Goldings hops, an aroma (and a flavor) that I've come to love in Goose Island Honker's Ale. There isn't much else going on, but then there doesn't need to be. (Edit: I'm not sure what the hop bill was back in 2004, but these days (2009) it's comprised of Columbus, Chinook, Cascade and Centennial.)

The flavor is dominated by citrus zesty hops, which is as expected. I'm betting that some variety of hop complementary to Goldings is used as well, since this ale tastes noticeably different than Honker's. There's just enough malt to do the job, but not so much that it ruins the hop-heavy balance of the beer (that's balance from a hophead's perspective). The mouthfeel exudes quality in all respects.

I'm sure there are better American IPAs out there, but there probably aren't too many of them. Avery IPA is the real deal and makes me wish that it was available in my area of the country. The label shows the shipping route from England to India. Pretty cool considering the style.

12 oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a clear copper, with 2 ½ fingers of stiff bright-white head. This retains with roughly a ¾ finger of froth, which slathers the sides of the glass with sticky patchy lacing. The aroma smells floral, with a big push of bright citrusy hops. A fairly strong herbal presence (and some lighter pine) mixes in as well, along with a light spiciness on the edges. Malts offer up a supportive grainy sweetness underneath and I’m picking up just a touch of alcohol warmth along the back.

The taste has a sharp citric bitterness to it, tempered by notes of fruit and sweet toasted grains. Rind, spice, and lingering resins give the finish some strength. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a smooth sharpness that gets borderline creamy at times despite the moderate amount of heft that his present. Alcohol warmth does accentuate the bitterness here but also helps bring out a lot of that sweet stickiness from the malts and fruit as well.

This was a pretty overall solid IPA from Avery, with well balanced hop flavors and a generally pretty easy feel for the alcohol content. It had been awhile since I’ve had this one and it more than held up to what I remembered of it.

Avery's India Pale Ale pours a yellow-amber body benath a full head of frothy white foam that holds well and leaves some nice rings of lace at the outset of the glass.
Citrusy, grapefruit-like hops appear in the nose along with some biscuity malt.
The mouthfeel is lightly crisp with a medium body and fine-bubbled, standard carbonation.
The flavor again delivers a splash of grapefruity citrus upfront, along with some lemon and chalky lemon rind, and a touch of pine as well. It's lightly honeyish and biscuity malt acts as a stage for the hops, and lets them keep the spotlight. It's well balanced by a solid bitterness that anchors it firmly without becoming obtrusive. It finishes dry with fading notes of lemon that turn to pine, and then disappear leaving only a very long lingering dull bitterness behind.
For fans of citrusy hops, this one's a winner!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours an oh-so clear golden hue with a splash of orange that looks reminiscent of apple juice. The last couple of weeks have been nothing but stouts and porters for me, so it's refreshing to see some sharp, crystal clear colors for a change. White foamy head, but it's dieing fast! Some great lacing throughout this beer's final moments.

Smell: A fruit medley (pineapple, mostly) mixed with piney hop aromas. I'm not picking up much (or any) malt in the nose.

Taste: A light, delicate flash of malt followed by a rushing tide of hop bitterness with a long, spicy finish.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp and quiet thirst-quenching. Medium-light mouthfeel with a fair amount of carbonation. Not bad! It's got good...

Drinkability: While India Pale Ale is not my favored style, I'm really enjoying this, as its got just the right amount of hops for me. Definitely as sessionable as an IPA can be.

Thanks again, Avery!

Found myself up in Asheville last night, (Beerfly reviews forthcoming) and stopped in a fine little BBQ establishment on the strip. Ordered my beer before dinner, as per usual. Didn't know what to get out of the 75 or so bottles they had, but then I remebered I had not ever tried Avery IPA(I can hardly believe it myself). So I figured what the ell and ordered up a bottle. A very nice looking bottle came out, nice old style map on the front gave it a "worldly" look. Please and ready to start I dove in straight away.

Poured a reasonably clear, after some settling, orange amber color. Lots of visible carbonation. A very nice one inch white head graced the top of the glass. This faded in a couple minutes, receding into a thin film along the top that stayed with the beer till the very end. Nice residual lace in rings down the glass as the session went on. Had a decently thick appearence for an IPA and definatly looked the part.

The smell was a citrus and sugar hop bomb. Overwhelming smell of orange and tangerine overpowered just about everything else. A slight hint of sugar could be detected a well, giving it the orange popsickle kinda tone. Hints of grapefruit of pineapple bitterness could be picked up as well as the smell of fresh grass. Exactly what I would have wanted my IPA to smell like.

Diving right in my first impression was holy hops! Bigtime grapefruit and orange peel were so pronounced I could just sit there and smile. A touch of sweetness rounded out the initial feel with a dry bitter finish that left me yearning for another sip. Very clean and crisp feel, gave this the feel of a finished product and something that has been mastered. Great carbonation on the feel gave it the silky, rolling smoothness that I crave in a good brew. A tiny bit of a earthy, grainy malt tried to force its way through the full frontal hop assault. Very nice tasting IPA, quite impressed with the flavor.

Overall I have to give this one pretty marks. It really was exactly what I wanted at that time and did not dissapoint at all. It was your classic west coast hop bomb of an IPA, and that is something that I just love. Definatly a winner from Avery, a damn fine finish brew.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/16/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright amber color with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is heavy with hops bitterness and fruity citrus sweetness, with a touch of malt in the background.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of floral hops, then a nice balance comes from a hearty malt character and mild flavors of citrus and caramel. The after-taste is hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, very clean finish.

O: Very tasty, goes down easily, not very filling, excellent representation of style, decent kick, it’s flavorful enough that you can keep drinking for a long time without looking for something else. This is definitely a beer that I would stick with for a whole evening.

Poured into a Sam Adams Sensory Glass. No freshness date.

Color is a dull carmel. Head is very fluffy and sticks around for a while leaving wonderfull lacing.

Aroma is of floral and citrus notes. Taste is quite similiar; very heavy on the floral taste.

Mouthfeel is bitter, smooth, and at the end it is bitter again. Leaves a dry taste in your mouth.

Overall,
This is a solid ipa, nice and hoppy. A great representation of the style. I would recommend this one.

Recent tasting on tap at City Tap House, Philly, PA

Hazy, golden-orange pour with a small cap of white head that retained well and laced the glass. Crisp hop aroma, pine and citrus, with some bready malts coming through. Actually quite malty in the taste up front, but pleasant and not overly sweet, mid-palate quickly brought in a rush of crisp hops, orange rind and pine, for a lasting bitterness that took the edge off the obvious malt base. Medium body, crisp, fresh mouthfeel. Quite a solid IPA overall.

On-tap at Blue Palms

A: The pour is an orange-ish color with about a finger's worth of white head and some streaks of lacing.

S: A good citrus note to the aroma. It's more of a rind/peel sort of smell, with some piney notes that provide sort of an oily, resinous character to the whole beer.

T: Though the nose lead me to believe this would be a very bitter IPA, it was rather controlled in this aspect. Yes, there is a solid bitter pine flavor as well as some grapefruit rind, but it's not overpowering. A mild malt character, but it's not really sweet at all.

M: The body is medium with a fairly lively carbonation and a bit of bitterness lingering on the tongue.

D: This was a decent IPA, but it doesn't quite stack up with some of the offerings I've become accustomed to here in Southern California.

Pours apricot with 3+ fingers of khaki colored head. Very good head retention & lacing

S: Floral & lemony hops, some grapefruit, seems a bit restrained when compared to the bottled & draft versions

T: Follows the nose, slight mineral edge mixes with a touch of doughy bread up front. Caramel mixes with herbal & piney hops as this warms. Finishes with caramel sweetness & piney & herbal hop bitterness, almost pulled a 4.5

MF: Medium bodied, creamy, subdued carbonation

Having this & Ska Modus available as canned options thrill me. I do like this better from the bottle,but this could be a freshness issue since I really don't know how to translate the date coding

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

I can't believe I haven't officially set down my thoughts on this stuff yet. Go figure. It pours a clear golden-amber topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises sharp pine, strong grapefruit, and a kiss of mild honey. I have this sneaking suspicion that some hops have been added to this beer... The taste brings in more of the same, with the grapefruit, complete with peel, stealing the limelight. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a somewhat simple, yet very tasty and satisfying, IPA. Good times.

Dark gold in color, fairly cloudy. Thin head but very nice lace.

Fresh mowed grass was the first aroma impression I had. Hop aromas come through at the very end.

Strong bitterness up front. It fades nicely to provide a nice malt-hop blend. The swallow provides more hop punch. The carbonation is slightly high; the body is in the moderate range.

A pleasurable IPA. Worthy of purchasing a six-pack.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Southern Tier 2xIPA glass. it poured a clear golden color with a inch of white foam covering the top of the beer. Pretty good head retention and lacing on the glass as I drank it.

The aroma has a nice bright citrusy and fruity flavor to it. Grapefruit is the most dominant wit ha bit of mango and pineapple to it as well.

The taste shows a lot of pine and bitter grapefruit throughout the flavor. As it finishes I get a little of the tropical fruit like flavors to it. A little sweetness is there in the finish too helping smooth it out a bit. The pine and grapefruit linger for a bit.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, it was a very nice drinking IPA overall. I particularly liked the little bit of tropical, pineapple, mango flavors I got out of it and would have liked even more. It had a very nice hoppiness to it though and I enjoyed it very much. Very solid beer overall.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a DHF pint glass

A: Pours a bright orange with a 2 finger head, with lacing that settles very slowly, appearing down the entire glass.

S: A nice nose with a strong citrus/grapefruit aroma with a hint of malt. Classic IPA smell.

T: Nice floral hop driven taste. A nice bitter taste that I look for in an IPA with a little malt on the back end.

M/D: Great carbonation and a nice light mouthfeel. Very drinkable. I thoroughly enjoyed this IPA and look forward to having another soon.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a orange/golden color with one finger of fluffy white head that leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass, and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, and light pine hops. Pleasant but not overally hoppy.

t - Tastes of grapefruit and citrus hops up front, with some definite bitterness. Also some fruity malts, pine, light spice, and light floral notes. More pine than the smell.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation, bitter up front.

d - A pretty good IPA from Avery. The taste is a bit bitter and I prefer Maharaja (even though that's a DIPA), but would drink this again. Definitely worth checking out.

Appears in my pint a glowing hazed golden orange burst of sunshine with an overcast of cloudy white foam above it, leavng trails of speckled lacing with each sip. Aromatic qualities to be enjoyed come in the form of vinous hops that give off citrus tones with a mellow crisp malt profile not too bad at all. Taste however throws a curveball at me, much more pronounced grapefruit like characteristics with the finish containing almost no malt sweetness but the rind of a citrus fruit overly bitter in the finish lacking the balance I search for and adore. Mouthfeel: Spritzy medium bodied IPA, not bad. Drinkability: Gets shot down due to unbalance why does my mouth taste like I'm chewing on an orange peel this is pissing me off.

Pours a clear amber with some nice cream head. Airy hoppy nose that gives some pine characters. Smells like a forest of vibrant pine trees. Flavor is meaty with piney attributes. Just a robust overall flavor profile. Not much complexity to it. It just hits you and stays that way. Feel is good on the liquid. Nice bubble to it as well. Overall pretty drinkable. Not really a hop bomb, and not really a dud. It is what it is.

Sixer of cans from Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.

An exceptionally good looking beer, Avery IPA is crystal clear and teeming with effervescence. The head is a solid inch thick, displaying lasting retention and leaving ample lacing on the pint glass.

The aroma consists of pine, hops, earthy malts, and citrus, respectively.

Nice flavor, with hops in the forefront, though there is a healthy malt showing as well. The beer is more of an earthy, piney IPA, as opposed to a tropical fruits and tangy citrus IPA. As the beer warms, malt begins to emerge and gain equal footing with the hop character. I prefer American IPAs to be all about the hops, neglecting balance.

The feel is medium bodied, fuller than is customary for a single IPA, with appropriate carbonation. The finish brings a lasting bitterness and tangy, earthy malts.

Overall, a decent brew. I'd have it again.

The CANQuest (TM) is rolling right along this evening, thanks to an end-of-the-school-year sigh of relief and my desire to rededicate my efforts to reviewing beers in a CAN. I bought some Avery CANs at Pinocchio's in Media and Onenote81 sent me some more, so they became the evening's focus.

From the CAN: "Hop Freaks Unite!" That reminds me - today is Flag Day and I am definitely interested in flying my Hop Freak Flag this evening. "Our IPA is an intense hop experience straight from the [CAN]! Settle back and savor the citrusy. floral bouquet and the rich, malty, yet dry finish. Brewed by hop heads, for hop heads."; "Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, hops, and yeast." Hell, yeah!

The Crack & Glug resulted in a finger-and-a-half of rocky, tawny head that immediately began to fall, leaving sticky lacing in its wake. Color was a gorgeous golden-yellow that would have made both King Midas and Croesus envious, plus it evidenced NE-quality clarity. Nose was straight up hops, yo!

Understand, I copped for years to having a hops habit that elevated me above simple "Hop Head" status. I was given to putting hops pellets on my tongue and swigging an AAL for the rush (no lie!) and I had a hops jones at times that sent me flying into brewpubs while traveling around just to get at an IPA to quiet the chattering monkey on my back. I was following the hops reps around just to get a taste of the latest hybrid since the standards weren't getting it done. I would call in sick because I couldn't get enough hops to last me through the day. I was a sick individual until The CANQuest (TM) and its attendant steady diet of AALs and AMLs slowly weaned me off of the insidious hummus lupulin. I was cured, brothers and sisters, cured! Do you hear me? Until a night like tonight, when I let my guard down and Wham!, the monkey is right back and I am sucking down an AIPA like it is water and I am reaching for another and I ain't going in tomorrow ...

Whoa! Like, I said, nose was floral and minty/grassy and I was sent, man. Coming back down, the mouthfeel was meaningless as I just wanted the sweet, sweet taste of hops running around on my tongue and down my throat. Yeah, that's it, give it to me, baby! CAN't they just CAN hops extract for people like me? Why do I gotta go through this torture? It had a beautiful taste, grassy, minty, slightly piney and I felt like a hops virgin again. Finish was when when I sat back and started licking the lacing out of the glass. My sponsor is on his way over, but I think that it is too late. I'm filling a cooler with this, tooling over to Hops (not Skid) Row, picking up my buddies and we're going surfing on hops down at the beach. Look for us, we're the pasty guys all huddled around the cooler with our eye out for The Man.

Review from notes taken on 6/23/10.

Served in a pint at Als via the beer gas mixture. Appears a crystal clear golden yellow color with a finger of creamy white head. Very solid retension with patchy lace clinging all over the glassware. Aroma is filled with a hop combo of citrus and herbal smells. Little bit of a grainy sweetness blends throughout. The taste of this brew is bitter with herbal hops upfront. Overall a light bodied brew that is modestly carbonated. Slightly crisp drying finish. Lingering aftertate of herbs and a biscuity grain character that imparts a bit of grassiness about the hops. Quite refreshing and drinkable.

Pours a vibrant amber with a thin white head that leaves some broken rings of lacing on the glass.

The smell is citric - grapefruit and orange. Some peppery alcohol is in the back.

The taste is of citrus - grapefruit and orange. Very bitter with just a nod of some sweet malt in the back end. Peppery alcohol gives it a kick. Rather astringent, with notes of soapiness and wet cardboard. Quite resiny after mid-way through.

This is a decent IPA overall, but I can't see what makes this special. It is slightly flawed and harsh. Not enough to really complain about, but enough to keep it from greatness. The citrus does shine forth, especially in the nose. It does seem to be lacking something tying it together that would improve it. As it is, it's decent, but found myself going to another IPA after one of these, though a second would be fine too.

Appearance: clear, pale orange color, fine, if short, off-white head.

Aroma: bristling with pine, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple. Quite a bit of hoppiness in this nose!

Taste: fierce and fiery hop bitterness right up front on the palate, but much appreciated and quite delightful.

Body is about medium and of sufficient heft, although malt is a bit lean in this IPA, abd the hops continue to stand tall in the saddle throughout the drink. But that's what I like, li'l ol' hophead, me.

Relentless flavor, tasty, tasty.
Real humdinger of an IPA that I'd gladly return to, anytime.

Slightly hazy deep golden color with white head. Aroma has a very distinct hop profile with grassy/herbal/heather notes. Taste starts with sweet citrus fruits, gets slightly astringent with herbal notes and finishes with resiny hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. It has a really interesting hop profile, quite different from the IPAs I had recently.
