Avery Brewing Company IPA

“A definitive malt presence that is well-balanced by an assertive, but not overpowering bitterness. Some corn-chip flavors detract. The hoppiness is much like the aroma with lots of berries and herbs. Light but discernable off flavors of acetaldehyde and DMS and a light metallic finish. The expected hops flavors are there—pine, lemon, grapefruit—but a difficult tannic and astringent note competes with the more pleasant flavors.”
