4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a pint glass out of a growler from Libation Station in Johnson City, TN.
Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a thick off-white head. Really good head retention and lacing.
The aroma is full of pine and earth along with a noticeable roasty character. Also toffee and caramel all working in perfect harmony with the hops. A really nice balance and definitely more British than American.
The taste has more in the way of hops than the aroma with tons of pine along with a little bit of Earthyness and dank. Just a tiny amount of citrus in this one. Nice malt character with caramel and toffee and just a little bit of roast. Very assertive long lasting bitterness along with a full and creamy mouthfeel.
Overall, while this is only 6% it feels like a much bigger beer with the substantial mouthfeel. A great IPA and one of the best beers I have had from Highland.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ok IPA but I was expecting a little more. Good looking but punch it more with dry hops and more rye. Good not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich deep copper and light brown coloured body with a thick, two centimetre tall tan head - quite dark for the style, but still looks good. Aroma of nuts, earth, caramel, toffee along with some earthier and nuttier hops - seemingly of East Kent or German origins. Medium-bodied; Assertive floral and toffee flavours at first with a hit of hops right at the beginning and a finish of malt, earth and caramelised sugars and not much else. Aftertaste shows a lighter taste of raisins, grapefruit, pine and more earth, but still not much character around the malt - more hoppy than anything, but not overly complex or flavourful. Overall, a decent IPA that has itís moments, but given my good experience with this brewery, I was expecting and hoping for more, but this fell short. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 09-March-2014 for US$2.39 sampled at home in Washington on 03-June-2014.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Half pour at the source after a decent hike- the way to drink beer, really. Great color- vibrant, rich red with a decent head. Nicely balanced between sweet and hops (avoids pitfall of the Extra Special Malted beers seem that usually err on side of sickly sweet) with interesting finish. Description calls it pear and apple in the finish- not sure I get that, but definitely not your usual hops. Interesting, good. Guess itís the last of the batch until 2015.
