OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with Beer_Hawk - Thanks Steve! - Pours golden with a fluffy white head that stays pretty well and laces with spiderweb-like patterns. Aroams of fresh cut grass over flowing amber grains. Flavor is nice and well balanced between american grains and nice floral and light grassy hops. Palate is well balanced and quite airy for an IPA. Very drinkable on a hot summers day in Ohio.

12oz bottle-pours a white head with hazy yellow color. Aroma is a strong, different for me, hops. Taste follows. Good carbonation.

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - JUN 1, 2006
12 oz bottle acquired via trade with SpringsLicker. Poured a clear golden color with a minimal white head. Not much going on in nose, some citrus and spicey hop aroma. Decent hop flavor with a nice malt presence as well. Godd citrus and caramel notes combine for a well balanced, medium-bodied taste. A decent beer, but not enough hop flavor for an IPA,.

argo0 (12856) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2006
(12oz bottle) Small white head atop a clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, peach, floral. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, grassy, light peach, floral, pine. Despite all these hop characteristic flavors, this isnít especially bitter -- its bitterness is comparable to a middle-of-the-road West coast APA. Light-medium body, some crispness.

via trade with decaturstevo - Pours a clear bright golden color with no head. Has a grassy, bready aroma. Flavor is mostly hops. Not sure what type. Not one of the big Cís that for sure. Smooth bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Thanks Steve.

I enjoyed this fine brew at the flying saucer. Excellent bitter hop aroma to it, wet cut grass aroma. The body was also very crisp and bitter and bit. Great IPA, the rest of the south should take notes.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Normal color with a smooth body. Nice hop aroma but an incredibly mild taste. Others that sipped it noted a soapy taste. I liked it, but its not a <!-- i -->great<!-- /i --> IPA.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2006
Pours a clear golden glass. An aroma of fruit and hops. A tad sweet and what I first thought was caramel but iím not sure. A good strong hoppy finish that is pleasant and lasting. The palate is a little fizzy to me.

shrubber85 (9999) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Flowery apple/apricot aroma - slightly musty. Medium yellow with small head. Very unique hops flavor - initially just a dry sensation with the bitterness building to a crescendo then very slowly fading away. Slight pine flavor - never seems to get too bitter. Impressive - the hops characteristics of this beer are a work of art - incredibly well-balanced without going over the edge.

Delirium (645) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Bottle. Pours golden with a moderate head. Aroma is floral and piney, rather maltier and sweet than expected but pretty nice. Flavor mostly nondescript IPA: generic bitterness with a hint of floral hops and a bit more maltiness than usual. Iíd prefer more flavorful rather than just bitter hops, and a bit more complexity. Not bad, but certainly the weakest of Highlandís usually strong offerings.
