Brewer Info: Since 1993 our brewery has been committed to producing eccentric ales and lagers that defy styles or categories. Our products are thoroughly American at heart: blending Old World tradition and expertise with ingenuity, creativity and boldness. We are dedicated to making beer from the inside out: we brew what we like to drink – with utter disregard for what the market demands – and search out fans with equally eccentric palates (We learned long ago that expressing your true self is much more fulfilling that giving in to outside pressures. Don’t you agree?) If you think your taste buds can keep up with our brews, we invite you to check out our entire lineup of more than twenty different beers. Peace to all and follow your dreams! The Avery Brewing Crew.
Brewer Brand Hype: In the 1700s one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increase alcohol content preserved his ales during the long voyage to India (as depicted in our label) to quench the thirst of British troops. Today, we tip our hat to that historic innovation by brewing Colorado’s hoppiest pale ale. Avery IPA demands to be poured into your favorite glass to truly appreciate the citrusy, floral bouquet and the rich, malty finish.

The Brewski Review: Super hoppy IPA worth a try if your into this sort of thing. I don’t really care for the bitterness so I may tend to down-rate my review based upon my negative preference for mucho bitterness. That isn’t to say this isn’t a good beer. I’m sure there may be quite a following for this brand. I’m just not one of them.
Drinkability: Probably not.
Appearance: Deeper golden color.
The Buds: Whoa! Hop city.
TBR Cap Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
