Just like you, but different
Herevana wouldn’t be a thing if International beers didn’t get a mention. Avery Hazyish IPA is one of those beers. The local Liquorland to me (Forrest Hill) seems to have a never ending supply of surprises and delights.
Avery Brewing Company (Mahou San Miguel) make the Avery Hazyish IPA in 🇺🇸 Boulder, Colorado, United States, ‘Merica! as an IPA – Hazy / New England (NEIPA) with an ABV of 7.0% and 30 IBU things. This would be around 355 calories a serve (can) and some 2.5 standard drink units in NZ.
That’s a low intensity aroma on opening, and hazyish cloudy golden orange pour, and with a lovely white bright head that always make me smile. It’s like I’m obsessed with head and head retention. We all have out things.
The aroma the glass is bolder I’m pleased to say.
The taste is initially quite bitter and rewarding, but it seems to be a sprint and it falls away quite quickly. This doesn’t make it bad, or not nice, it just makes it an interesting beer with an interesting profile, one that wakes you up and then lets you down gently.
I quite like it. It might also be that 30 IBU is low for an IPA, which would be at home in a ESB or Pale Ale.
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. I like the profile of this beer, the up front bitterness that falls away, and ends up with you just enjoying a nice decent hazy looking beer with a lovely aroma.
Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, malted wheat, flaked oats, hops (Simcoe, Amarillo, Azacca, & Mosaic) & yeast.
A juicy 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.
Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
