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.

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 donít know why Highland IPAs just are not very good. They do other styles well, but neither this nor the Devilís Britches IPA are worth noting. This beer is just not balanced and lacks in hops.

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

Points for originality, but original never automatically means excellent. Clear light to medium amber with a persistent 2 finger head, curtain of lace. Taste begins with sweet caramel malt and fresh biscuit; this is shoved around (but not aside) by very persistent pine hops. In this case, the two do not reach a compromise, fighting against each other right through a bloating, filling finish. Something just isnít right here. All of the flavors are legitimate, just squeezed together here in a bad marriage.

BMMillsy (1435) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2013
My 100th IPA rate...maybe I should have chosen better for this. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with little to no head. Aroma of sweet malt, honey, and no hops at all. Flavor is a muddled mess of honey and dusty stale hops, I guess. Sweet malt all the way through with an unpleasant aftertaste. Light and a bit watery. What a disappointing 100th IPA.

Appearance: clear, golden appearance Aroma: mild floral hops Mouthfeel: medium, slightly sticky Flavor: somewhat citrusy hop bitterness initially and a dry bitterness at the end with a sweet caramel malt flavor in between Overall: Nicely balanced and not over the top. Very enjoyable.

12oz bottle, from Jungle Jimís in Eastgate. Clear golden color, thin white head. Couple splecks of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Not bitter, nor assertive like your typical IPA. Just a moderate bitterness, light sweet taste. Some light citusy, lightly piney hop. More malt forward, but itís not a caramel, sweet malt, more clean and biscuity. As far as IPAs go, though, this doesnít really satisfy in the way that they usually do. Sub par for the category.

IPA glass. Pours a hazy gold, decent white head and some lacing. Sweet pine hops for the nose. Not bad for an IPA, the sweet tasting hops unfortunately drop off too quick and it finishes a bit watery for my taste. Still a very enjoyable beer.

Golden with white head. Citrus aroma. Caramel malt flavor with floral hop finish. Not too bitter.

Pours a full bodied golden color. Has a barely noticeable aroma of sweet hops. Tastes good, but maybe too light of a body for an IPA.
