I chased the Avery India Pale Ale with the Dick’s IPA and I have to tell you they are a good little match up. Very similar in color, the Dick’s has a much bigger head on it… no pun intended… you take that where you want to. The nose on the Dick’s is a bit more hoppy vs. fruity… no pun intended, you take that where you want to. The taste of the Dick’s on the tip of the tongue is much more pronounced than the Avery where that one had much more on the roof of the mouth than the Dick’s. The Dick’s does have a more pronounced bitterness at the back of the throut, though… no pun… ah crap… you get the point.
Overall, Dick’s IPA satisfies and has to be on par with with Avery’s overall performance although in different ways…
