IPAllapolooza -- III


Avery IPA was my only IPA of the day yesterday (been kind of busy, and I'm just getting to it, hope to have more tonight), and it was a beauty. Orange-gold, brassy and sassy, with a tight cap of soft creamy froth that just never died, the whole way through the pint. It was lively, not thick or heavy, and not overly bitter or harsh at all. Full of hops, but not full of itself.

The hops beat goes on...

I have to agree with the Avery assessment here, it is a good one. In fact it was one of my first craft beers and one of the one's that got me to "change" my taste when I was living in Baltimore a few years back. I had just "discovered" hop devil, and was loving it, but Max's ran out of the stuff one night and the bar keep offered the Avery, which got me thinking about what other IPAs I might try and like, so there will always be a bit of a soft spot in my heart for the hop devil, Avery's IPA and of all things Tupper's Hop Pocket, which were my first three "favorite" craft brews - and I drank them religiously - Still do, when I get the chance.
