COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is hops, a little fruit. Just enough bitter to keep it from being water. Its a hoppy American beer. Its OK; Id drink it if it was available but its nothing special

Solid beer. This is the second Blowing Rick beer i have had and I have been impressed with then both. This one had a smooth taste. Would definitely get it again.

Brownish Orange color. Medium carbonation. Sweet fruity nose, but sour fruit finish. Grapefruit, hops, pine, vinegar?. Nice strong beer, but it doesn?t go down so easy.

Well im currently in north Carolina drinking this beer so I dont want to rate this too badly but I dont like this very much. I wouldnt say its like rusty nails but its also not as cold as the rockeys.

maxwelldeux (3807) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2012
This has a few characteristics I would expect from a lager, but this isnt too bad. Pours a light clear amber with a moderate head. Fairly malty for an ale.

tkrjukoff (4101) - SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle 12 oz, Total Wines & More. Pours cloudy copper amber with a small diminishing headleaving small lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, fruity peaches and grassy. Flavor is very nice and refreshing; fruity, malty, sweet, caramel, a bit acidy citric and medium hoppy. Finishes sweet fruity and a bit hoppy.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reviewed: 5/11/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent dark orange with a thick off-white head resting on the top. Retention is fair; leaves some light lace on the glass. Scents of sweet malts, honey, and a faint piney resin on the back end. The mouth is firm with a crisp carbonation front, and a smooth finish. Great sweet malty flavors that mix well with a moderate hop bitterness. Some fresh bread aftertaste. I could drink these all the time, and with this beer being sold everywhere in the city, I just may. Much better than anticipated.

bottle from ingles in sylva consumed 7/11/11. honey color with a slight ow head. it is not exactly pleasant smelling... woody, odd herbals and citrus. the palate is a bit sweet and out of place.... flavors of orange, wood, herbs, apples, florals, metal and caramel. 5/3/5/3/12

kerenmk (2612) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 31, 2012
Bottle, beer of the month club. Pours hazy amber with minimal head. Green banana and caramel aroma, tastes of hops and medium bitterness, light body, really carbonated, short finish and not very exciting.
