Pours a pleasing apricot/peach-gold with a nice two-finger fluffy head that retains very well for the ABV and excellent lacing. Not cloudy like most NEIPA's. This is more restrained in that regard.

Aromas of mango, pineapple, mandarin orange, peach, and white grape all arrive with just a bit of bitter citrus in the background.

Sweet fruity malts dominate the initial sip, with honey, apricot, pineapple mango, mandarin orange, peach, and white grape, but the brew provides plenty of sour and bitter citrus and grassy notes in midstream, mostly blood orange and grapefruit. The finish is peppery, weedy, and resiny, with a touch of warming but well-hidden booze. The brew is sweet, even for the style, and comes dangerously close to cloying in that regard, but manages to hold it all together.

The brew may actually be beyond medium, and is about as full-bodied a DIPA as I've had. Creamy and supple on initial sipping, the solid carbonation and ABV lend a drying aspect late in the game.

A very tasty NEIPA. If it didn't tread so close to the "sticky-sweet" line, (even for the style), it would be world-class.

12 oz can, canned on 5/10/19. Pours very hazy orange gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is a bit subdued - some sweet fruit juice with some resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet juicy fruit with some resiny hops in the finish. The alcohol is well hidden. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice fruity imperial NE IPA.

12oz can into a pint glass last night. Canned 6/14/19, so a month old.

solid orange/peach colored body, with some floaties. Nice loose white head leaves decent lacing throughout.

Pleasant aroma of both citrus and non citrus fruit.

On tasting , the multiple fruit tastes come through, to me, non citrus edging out the citrus. Towards the end, the bitterness comes through, and it's not harsh at all, making for a smooth easy drinking beer.

Mouth comes close to full, finish the usual NEIPA bittersweet, fruity wash with a bitter ending.

Overall, tasty offering from Avery, happy to have the rest of the six pack in the fridge. Of note is the 10.0abv, which is noticeable, but you don't care, since the drink is quite delicious. So beware if having more than one.

This beer pours a vaguely hazy orange with a average head. The aroma is deeply fruity, with tropical guava and mango intermixing with berries and a bit of resin. The flavor is even more berry forward, with blueberry and boysenberry, as well as peach, apricot, guava, and a bit of pine and resin. The mouthfeel is fairly full and sweet, with light, sudsy carbonation. Overall a rather impressive beer - one of the more well blended examples of berry and tropical fruit tones from hops that I can recall.

12 oz can poured into a pint glass.

Cloudy yellow-orange. White foamy head-good lacing for a high ABV beer.

Smells of tropical fruits, marmalade and sweet malt.

Very tropic fruit forward. Mango, papaya, melon and honey.

Quite smooth for such a big beer. Goes down pretty easy.

It is a shame that this one ends up being too sweet for me. It has some good initial hop flavors but the sweetness builds as it warms ultimately becoming distracting. One and done for me.

Never shying away from a challenge, the larger, more nationally minded craft brewers have gotten a bad rap for the lack of character in the hazy IPA genre that the smaller and more regionalized breweries. That's a challenge that Avery Brewing has happily accepted.

Brewed to imperial strength, Double Digit pours a hazy orange with a pep of peach and golden hues. Capped with a frothy ivory foam stance, the Mosaic, Simcoe and Amarillo driven hop profile delivers a host of citrus and tropical fruit along with berry, orchard fruit and marmalade when the more estery side of fruitiness comes around. Sweet and caramelized on the tongue, the first sip is candied, pastry-like and honey dipped.

Slowly releasing its sweetness, the beer builds upon its fruity upstart by releasing a bold medley of mango, papaya, peach and orange seem sweet, succulent and candied in nature. Its nearly marmalade sweetness is met with a peppery herbal balance that hinges on parsley, lemon pepper and the botanicals of gin.

Grapefruit, apple and apricot continue the fruit forward flavors as the full bodied IPA begins to relax and show a tendency toward dryness. A late palate of stewed tropical fruit peels and hemp-like hops ensure a bright but spicy finish with an aftertaste of fresh spruce resins and the peppery heat of vodka.

12 oz. Can
CANNED: 03/28/19

Poured into a tulip glass a pretty nice cloudy pale yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach), nice little diesel/pine. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach), pretty nice little diesel/pine like. Full Body, ABV hidden nicely, with a pretty nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. Glad to see it around here.

Canned on 3/28/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy yellowish golden with a small eggshell white head that fades leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are floral along with some citrus. Some fresh grass. Some crackers and bread. Malts are there. The flavors are clean. More floral and citrus notes. Some orange, grapefruit along with some subtle hints of peach, mango and apricot. Lots of fresh grass. More crackers and bread in the mix. Malts do their thing without dominating. Finishes juicy and dry at the same time. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, fluffy, smooth and dangerously drinkable.

This is a pretty solid DIPA. It's clean, crisp and refreshing for clocking in at 10% ABV. It's well crafted, enjoyable and fun to drink. I like it.
