Poured from bottle. Nice hop, malt, ocean aroma. Almost clear gold with lacing head. I taste citrus and floral hops with a bit of sweetness and a malt back. Banana and pepper notes as well. Hops are not overpowering. Decent - a good "go to" choice.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a slight tinge of orange. Smell is orange pineapple, piney hops. Taste is a little sweet, caramel, pine, citrus in the middle and medium bitterness in the finish. Not great meets all the single IPA criteria. Also seems to be very sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Darker orange pour and bright clear. nose is some citrusy and lightly floral and grassy hops. with some bready but not really caramelly malts. Flavor is similar but lacking in overally hop qualities. The malt body is good and seems like it could make a good ipa but is far from a good hoppy beer.

A bit light for an IPA, balanced malt and hops with a bit buttery of a feel. Lingering finish that is lacking in punch.

Horribly smelling ipa. Really skunky. The flavor is very good despite the taste. Nicely bitter and a nice kick of hopps. Has a bitter finish and almost no citrus taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finhead (1185) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Hazy, yellow-gold color with a white head. The aroma has earthy notes mixed with light grapefruit. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter with a pretty easy finish.

metalhead0043 (144) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2013
6-pack of 12 oz bottles for 7 bucks. Pours clear gold with a white head. Looks more like a lager than an IPA. Aroma is of some fruit and citrus as well a slight hint of malts. Strange aroma for an IPA though. Taste is bitter and on the end turns quite astringent. Decent enough, but unremarkable. I don’t know why Highland IPAs just are not very good. They do other styles well, but neither this nor the Devil’s Britches IPA are worth noting. This beer is just not balanced and lacks in hops.

scotchzombie (329) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Yellow and clear with a small but steady head. Aroma hoppy sweet citrus. Taste is less sweet, pine, hops, and plenty of grapefruit. Quick bitter finish. Not great depth but solid overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
