Our flagship High Country is a deep, golden ale brewed with American 2-Row and Munich style malts. Cascade and Centennial are used in the finish and dry hopping. This is our best selling and most versatile ale due to its balance between a floral citrus hop profile and well-integrated hop bitterness. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing.

Beer pours clear, golden color with a dissipating off white head. Beer has a nice citrsy hop note in the nose as well as a cereal grain aroma. Flavor is initially sweet and biscuity and then has a bit of a dry hop finish. Pretty decent beer.

Suttree (5265) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Orangey gold, decent sized white head. More malty than hoppy in both the nose and flavor. Some caramel notes and some biscuity flavors, too. OK, I guess, but rather uninspiring. Contract brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Bottle. Pours orange. Smells hoppy and fruity. Nice citrus taste and easy on the plalate. Goes down very good. Overall a nice beer.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2008 Pours a light orange with a small white head. Nice citrus on the nose with a backing of caramel notes. Caramel malts show more in the flavor. Finishes light but has a nice bitterness. Has nice flavor but is also easy to drink.

12 oz. Clear, shiny orange-copper with a small head that settles to a lasting ring. Caramel-butterscotch aroma with some citrus underneath. Tastes of caramel, sourish apple and slight orange. Some lightly toasted wood and nut appear in the finish, and become more noticeable halfway through the glass. Light-medium body finishes dryish and is a little too frothy with carbonation.
