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.

Pours a copper color with white head that quickly dissipates. Floral and fruity nose typical of an APA. Taste of some citrus (more orange than grapefruit), with some mild hops/bitterness on the finish. Not great, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, some light hops and not much else. Light to Medium-bodied; Pale malt up front with some light sugars, a bit of earthiness and a hint of nuts. Aftertaste shows some mellow sugars, a little hop bitterness and some subdued cardboardie malts - but largely nothing there. Overall, a decent amber if nothing else, but really not worth the time, for lack of anything interesting. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle from a beer sampler pack on 01-March-2013 at a friendís house in Odenton, Maryland.

From a 12 oz bottle at the Outer Banks of NC. Pours a clear pale amber with a thick off white head. Aroma of mild grassy hops. First flavors are a pleasant maltiness but fade quickly to not so pleasant aftertaste.

12oz into a pint. Pours a honey orange with bronzed highlights. Taste is hoppy, syrup, bland, a tad fruity, and dry. Not a fulfilling ale, this ones an easy goer with non existent high fives and subtle regressions. Average body, solid drinkabliity, but nothing to exhasperate to the farmers.

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