Review: Avery Hazyish IPA

Avery Brewing's Hazyish IPA is described as ajuicy and hazy India Pale Ale with low bitterness, an expressive aroma of four different hop varieties, and a creamy mouthfeel. We wouldn't be Avery Brewing if we didn't put our own stamp on the juicy and hazy IPA style. We took all that is great in a hazy IPA; low bitterness paired with the powerful and juicy aroma of hops, and the silky sensation of the liquid, but brewed for excellent shelf stability and consistency from batch to batch. 7.0% ABV

Appearance: Hazyish pours a cloudy/hazy orange juice body with a thick snowy white appearance to it. The head diminishes pretty quickly to leave behind a liberal amount of lacing on the glass, quite fluffy!

Aroma: Quite tropical and citrusy-forward. The first thing I get is a heavy presence of pineapple, a bit of guava, lemon and orange. This has quite a Five Alive sort of aroma to it so far. Quite sweet, a tad vegetal, floral hops and a bit of breadiness at the end.

Taste: Citrusy, sweet, tropical hazy IPA with notes of pineapple, lemon, orange and a bit of guava. Sweet, a hint of caramel, floral hops and a subtle hint of bitterness as well. It's a bit leafy and a bit bready. Good amount of lemon in this beer. The mouthfeel is fairly dry while the aftertaste is pretty much a breadiness with a hint of lemon.

Overall Thoughts: Pineapple-forward hazy IPA with a good deal of breadiness from the yeast. It's citrusy, sweet and not overly heavy compared to a good deal of beers in this style. Easy to drink.
