Cans from Pentagon City Wines; pretty solid hazy IPA, good lacing and head, and interesting dirty yellow color. I like it, but then, I like all of Avery's beers.

Six pack of cans picked up at Total Wine in Lynnwood, Washington.
Best by date is 6/14/19. Served in a pint glass.

Look- Hazy, golden orange color, moderate white head that leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Little carbonation stream visible in the glass as it sits.

Smell- Dank, melon, citrus, pine, tropical fruit, peach, blueberries, a little bit of vanilla and pepper as it warms.

Taste- Melon, citrus (primarily lemon and tangerine, a little grapefruit), blueberries and strawberries, tropical fruit, peach/nectarine, dank and pine, the berries definitely stand out. Decent malty mid notes, minimal pine and bitterness in the finish.

Feel- Medium bodied and fairly light drinking, crisp carbonation that plays in the mouth.

O- A very solid NE style IPA from Avery. Went well with the landjaeger sticks I was eating at the time. Very affordable at $10 a six pack

Slightly hazy pale yellow/orange with a sticky froth.

Aroma of fully ripened tangerine, melon and passion fruit with some faint herb in the back.

Mostly orange, pineapple and going down. Faint vanilla cream and candied sweetness with tropical fruit zest and herb in the finish.

Medium in body with a touch of alcohol deep down.

An unpretentious NEIPA that colors within its own lines.

I'm trying this beer at Bodegas in La Crosse, Wisconsin. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had tropical citrus peel notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with tropical fruit presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Standard but overall good IPA - lots of pineapple flavor, mild hop bitterness with a slight cracker malt backbone...doesn’t reinvent the wheel but nice summer IPA

A decent offering from Avery. Slightly hazy yellow-white head-very little lacing

Tropical fruit, sweet pineapple, overipe mango. Slight bitterness on the finish.

Weakish mouthfeel but still drinkable.

Worth a try but I won't revisit.

Poured from a can into pint glass in May 2019. There is a canned date of 3/15/2019 on the can.

Appearance: Light gold color with thick white head. Lighter than other IPAs I have drank. As per the name, it is very hazy, like other New England IPAs. Head is very thick and there is nice lacing.

Smell: Strong aroma of hops, pine, and citrus, as well as some sweetness like pineapple. Overall the citrus aroma dominates the other aromas.

Taste: Sweet taste. There is a typical hops and citrus flavor but with some sweetness as well. This is not as bitter as most other IPAs. Has a nice after taste. Overall a nice balance and very drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Light to Medium bodied. Medium alcohol which matches the 7.0% listed.

This is a good and different IPA. It has a nice mix of grapefruit, hops, and other flavors, which makes it interesting. I like the overall balance, and that the citrus flavors are pronounced but do not dominate the flavor. I typically prefer IPAs with more hop bite, but it is very drinkable and I would buy this again.

12oz can. Poured out a hazy, golden color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of orange, pineapple and toasted caramel. Sweet tropical fruitiness with a sweet caramel finish.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 12/27/2018. Pours very hazy deep golden/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, mint, peppercorn, pine, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Slight lingering resins/rinds. Minimal warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an excellent NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish, awesomely soft feel. Awesome Simcoe, Amarillo, Azacca, Mosaic profile. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank/earthy hops; with a great balancing wheat/oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Slightly hazy, with a thick robust head. Nose has a bit of sweetness to it. Very floral flavors that I don’t typically find in a hazy ipa. Not sure I’m a huge fan or not. Decent beer I’d say though.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruit and wheat malt with a little resiny hop. It's a bit subdued.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruits and wheat malt with a resiny hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, an OK NE IPA - it's a bit subdued.

Uncertain whether to jump into the hazy end of the pool or to stay idle in the with West Coast versions and let all the new kids on the block steel their thunder, the Avery brewers take the New England styled IPA for a test drive to see if their hazy efforts will be worth it.

With a hazy orange color and a matte finish on the glass, the frothy, ivory beer leads with a burst of citronella that's fueled by a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo, Azacca, & Mosaic hops. Honey-like and with a granola-like sense of caramel and toast, the beer's early impression is of sweet candied malt.

But the hops unfold on the middle palate for a host of radiant, bold and succulent flavors that take on a distinct tangerine character. Background notes of mango, apricot, red grapefruit and lemon blend together to reinforce a juicy, orange-centric character. Herbal underpinnings emerge as the late palate invites a malty-dry taste with the grassiness of green tea, lemongrass and citrus rinds.

Medium bodied and trending dry, the finish is a blend of bright geranium herb, orange peel and a fresh sassafras bouquet. A medium long finish of bitterness and citrus juices give the session a refreshing character with a pleasant overall character. Never completely committing to the haze, the otherwise West Coast IPA takes on a softer, fruitier and juicier taste but at the sacrifice of utmost bitterness or dryness.

Avery has some rather limited distribution in New England and recently cans of this Hazy IPA reached the shelves of a major craft beer store in MA. that I frequently visit. Not surprisingly, many brewers from this region feature this style in their product line so I was somewhat surprised to see a CO brewer entering the competition here. However, after purchasing and sampling a few cans , I must admit that Avery has done a fine job in producing a very tasty and refreshing example of the style helped somewhat by a 7.0% ABV. Stands up to many of the local Hazy IPAs in most aspects so I'm hoping this isn't just a one-time situation and further shipments will be received locally.

Canned on 12/27/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale yellowish golden; fluffy white head that fades leaving nice retention and lacing. The aromas some floral notes along with some orange marmalade. Some grass and bread. Malts are there. The flavors have some citrus fruits. More orange along with some hints of lemon. More floral notes. Lots of fresh grass. Some black pepper in the mix. Moderate to low bitterness. Subtle sweetness. Malts do their thing. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's very fluffy, slightly creamy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is an okay "New England IPA". It's more or less what you would expect from the style. The flavors don't come off as bold, but they're clean and refreshing. Not bad.
