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.

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2010
This was purchased in bottle at the Blockcade Runner on Wrightsville Beach. The full bodied ale was a modest APA. Small head that laced down the glass. The clear color of amber was very inviting. This ale had excellent balance of malts and hops. It could have more hops. We were watching the US tie England in their first game of group C.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle. The beer pours yellow with a white head. The aroma is almost impossible to detect but there is some wheat and lighter malts in there. The flavor is wheat malt with some citrus, but it is also a little faint. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a small fading white head over a clear golden body. Aroma is grassy, grainy and bland. Perhaps some rotten meat. Taste is sweet, cloying with pear. Really a mess. Light bubbled drain pour.

Not bad, just really weak. Light hops are in the background of the mild caramel malt flavor. Watery finish. Balanced and drinkable.

biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Really not as bad as the ratings suggest, IMO. Yeah itís sweet, but itís a decent round malty sweetness with some flavor in there, so itís not horrible. Worth a try, at least.
