A 6 month old bomber poured into a duvel tulip. Last of the years supply, so not as fresh. Pours a hazy burnt tangerine with a white one finger head. Moderate to sticky lacing. Aroma is pine resin, orange, grapefruit, and malt. Flavor is pine, grapefruit, and a strong malt back. The hops seemed to have faded some as I remember this being more of a pallet assault when I had it on draft this past winter. The balance is nice however, and very drinkable. Mouthfeel is chewy. Will drink again, fresh or slightly aged.

Served in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a hazy golden-orange color with a moderate white head. The head faded to give a nice lacing.

Smell – The smell is a big mix of wonderful aromas. There is a nice sweeter malty flavor that is the base. With the maltiness there are great hop aromas of citrus, pine, and some more floral aromas. Overall very nice.

Taste – A slight sweet malt bready flavor meets the tongue. This is mixed with a wonderful more citrusy pine taste. The sweet fades over the taste experience becoming more bitter as the taste goes on. As it bitters, more hop flavors begin showing up. Grapefruit, pine, earthy and a bitter resinous flavor really come into play. They leave a very nice aftertaste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body is above average; nice and creamy. The carbonation level is on the average level. The creamy body really suits the beer well. It allows all those wonderful tastes to sit and relax on the tongue, but yet has enough carbonation to excite the tongue to just the right amount.

Overall – Avery does it again with this IPA. Great qualities all around with a very nice balance. All and all, I would definitely recommend.

A- Slightly hazy golden, nice color and a light head

S- Grassy and wet hop aromas, some malt presence as well

T- Sweet maltiness and a good bitterness without being overbearing, smooth, grassy tones, aftertaste is light and green

M- Moderate carbonation, medium body, sticks to the palate

O- It's got all the hoppy glory I was expecting, lots of fresh, green flavors, I'll definitely seek this out again
