Avery "India Pale Ale"
Avery Brewing Company - Boulder, Colorado USA
IPA (ABV 6.5%) (IBU 69)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky medium orange with some yellow highlights and a small (1 finger or less) white creamy head that was somewhat lasting, finally receding to a large puddle with a small collar which produced some excellent sheeting of lace that coated the glass.

The aroma was of floral and spruce hops, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was nicely bitter and lightly malty with a mild sweet caramel undertone from the start, progressing into a nice bitter hoppy taste with just a hint of citrus at the end. The flavor was around for an average time proceeding the swallow with a mild bitter hoppiness left to linger.

Mouthfeel was a few steps below medium in body with a dry texture and a mild to medium carbonation.

Overall an IPA with a light maltiness and a bit of citrus, which complimented the hoppiness very well...
