Pear of PeachesPear of Peaches
Notes: Building on their success with big IPAs, the Avery Brew Crew adds another hazy option to their beer portfolio with Pear of Peaches. Packed with juicy hops, Pear of Peaches brings a punch of fruity flavors to the genre of Imperial Hazy IPAs. Using contemporary dry-hopping techniques, Avery’s brewers added Simcoe and Amarillo hops, and then traditionally dry-hopped with Mosaic hops. Pear of Peaches is a surprisingly easy drinking 9% ABV brew with tons of fruit-forward hops paired with all-natural pears and peaches.

Cream colored head with large bubbled lace settled to think head. Totally opaque light burn orange color give it it's haze.

Pear, peach notes on the nose with some mango like sweetness. Aroma of citrus hops.

Juicy sweet peach and pear on the palate with mild carbonation . Great medium body with a malty full mouth feel and lots of hops to go along with a bit of alcohol warmth. The fruit just keeps coming as the beer warms a bit, really inviting on the palate and nose. Loads of citrus hops to dry out the finish a bit with no bitterness. Almost juice like without the acidic tang of juice and with more pleasing mouth feel.

One can definitely feel the impact of the 9% ABV and it is hidden well in the overall balance of this beer. A standout rich fruity sipping New England inspired Imperial IPA. I like it.

Hazy, but not chalky like a lot of hazy beers of late. not much head. Nose is soft and pure pear. Taste is straight IPA, imperial at that. This beer is smooth and refreshing.

Pushing the natural tendencies of today's hops to portray fruit aromas, fruit flavors and racy fruit acidities, Avery Brewing gives their fruit-centric Imperial Hazy IPA a little nudge with pears and peaches for that ultimate elevation of a true hop flavor profile.

Pear of Peaches pours with the luminosity of pale, golden peach juice. As its frothy cap builds toward the rim, the beer simply radiates a perfume of citronella, tropical fruit punch, bright and leafy herbs and a candied sweet scent. A firm malty upstart is layered with light caramel, honey, poundcake and agave sweetness.

But much of the malt is there only to inform the ale of its fruit forward sweetness as it acts in a supporting role once residing on the middle palate. But the attention is on the stone fruit, orchard fruit and the hop impressions of nectarine, apricot, mango, orange and guava. A tanginess of lime and gooseberry tightens the taste while the ale heads for a moderately bitter taste late on the palate in the forms of verbena, botanical gin, fresh spruce, cedar and sun tea.

Medium full in body and retaining a rounded malt profile, the beer's smooth but spicy finish is highlighted with gin-like spice and its herbal bitterness. A medium long aftertaste has the bitterness and alcohol spice rising to remind the palate that this smooth and succulent beer has a strong negroni-like side.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 1/24/2020. Pours very hazy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lightly tart/tangy peaches, pears, fruit fuzz/skin/pits, tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, apricot, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, red apple, berries, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, white bread dough, light biscuit/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of peaches, pears, citrus/fruity/tropical hops, and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big lightly tart/tangy peaches, pears, fruit fuzz/skin/pits, tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, apricot, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, red apple, berries, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, white bread dough, light biscuit/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Mild pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peaches, pears, fruit fuzz/skin/pits, tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, apricot, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, red apple, berries, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, pears, citrus/fruity/tropical hops, and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitter/tartness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitter/tartness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and lightly sticky/acidic/tangy mouthfeel that is great. Slight lingering resins/rinds through the glass. Minimal warming alcohol for 9%, or lingering hop burn after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited NEDIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, pears, citrus/fruity/tropical hops, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the big ABV, with the mildly bitter/tart/tangy/drying finish; great soft feel. Awesome Mosaic, Amarillo, Simcoe profile. Very juicy hops/fruit with light dank/earthy notes; with a nice sized wheat/oat/malt backbone. Mild residual sweetness with lingering tart/bitter dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and impressive style example. No complaints at all.

I'm not a huge fan of IPAs and picked this up by accident.
Look- Hazy gold with frothy head.
Smell-Citrusy and melon-y.
Taste-Fruity but not overly sweet, not extremely bitter for an IPA at the tailend either; better warm for non-IPA fans.
Feel-smooth. Not sure how else to describe.

I enjoyed this beer and so did my guests. With the alcohol content being at 9%, we split the beer between two each.

On tap. Poured a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of peach, pear and sweet caramel. Peach dominates the taste with pear, orange and toasted caramel.

Gotta admit. This is pretty damn tasty. Juicy, fruity, and luscious. A bit too oaty in the finish though. Would love to see a version with just pears.
