Poured cold into my bruery glass. A thick pillowy off white head took. Up about 1 1/2 fingers. Smells of peach, and a bit of floral. Almost had a bit of a lactic quality. Taste citrusy, lots of green hop flavor, piney, juicy, and ripe tasting. Had a very full body. Overall, this beer is a pleasure so enjoy it now!!!

Bottle of the Freshest Avery DIPA, XX 20th Anniversary.

Bottled in May, 2013

A: Golden, orange clear color, with a thick white head. Scant lacing throughout the session.

S: Fruity, hoppy, sweet and bubble gum. Some pine resin in the nose as well.

T: Follows the nose, and is a hop explosion in the mouth. Citrusy, sweet, and resinous. Pine flavors follow, and are well balanced. Faint tobacco flavor as well, with a full mouth draw.

M: Up front it seems dry, but there is a sticky, sweet pine that stays on the sides of the tongue.

O: Awesome, fresh, balanced DIPA, and one I would get again. Might even save one, to see what happens.

Avery Anniversary has made another great beer milestone.
