COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Lordy, thatís as red as the devilís britches," exclaimed a local rancher, awed by the vibrant canopy ablaze on what is known today as Devilís Britches trail. Highland Brewing Company commemorates the history of the Great Smoky Mountains and Devilís Britches trail with a rich, red IPA. Ashburne Mild malt produces a toasted and biscuity flavor, and Extra Special malt renders an alluring red hue. Apollo hops provide aggressive bitterness(70 IBU), while dry-hopping with Calypso hops yields complex fruity and floral aromas with hints of pear and apple. This devilishly delicious ale is Highlandís twist on the great American IPA.

12 ounce bottle from a six pack, purchased at the local Harris Teeter here in Huntersville, NC. Pours a reddish copper color with a thin head. Aroma is lightly hoppy. Taste is slightly butter with some hop notes. Lightly bitter finish as well. Just an average IPA in my opinion, nothing too special about this.

Draft sample. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Draft to pint from Ei8ht Ball. Looks decent; malty though. A mostly transparent dark burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells malty and mildly hoppy with a touch of soap. Tastes like it smells with a decent mouthfeel. Average at best, and grandpaís IPA.
