Avery IPA (bottled) - 3.8

Avery IPA
India Pale Ale
Avery Brewing
Boulder, CO
Alcohol Content: 6.3%

Jon:
This beer has a little bit of the IPA sourness that I'm not a huge fan of. Other than that, this is a pretty good hop-fest, and big props for Boulder breweries.

Obviously, I love IPA's and this one is no exception. I love that this beer is brewed right here in Boulder, Colorado. YEAH, IT IS! It just tastes fresh. No long ride in the beer truck here. This is another light, hoppy IPA with citrus (lemon and grapefruit) overtones and light golden color. This IPA is a bit mellow, by my standards, but very enjoyable. All together, a very acceptable IPA. By the way, this beer (along with every other beer) tastes quite different on tap. If you have the option of draft, go for it.

Jere:
Avery, Avery, Avery. Always a good buy, and I especially like the color. The cirtus-ey taste also adds to the overall experience. The only drawback I can see is the buzz factor, which isn't quite as high as I'd prefer. I always appreciate the locally brewed beer though so that's why this one rates 8 out of 10.

IPA's are gross. Weirdos.
