Hoppy IPA, those two words describe the beer, it did seem a little bit lighter/milder than most IPAs. Not too bad but nothing fantastic. I’d drink it again, good session beer.

draft. golden amber’ish with slight flowery aroma. small head with sticky lacing. small citrus tang in the front with a bit of astringincy (sp?) and very little bitterness at the end. enjoyable and sessionable but nothing to really make this memorable. one of the more modest highland offerings.

On Draught - somewhere in North Carolina.... Pours light amber, with little head. It’s light to middle weight, draws you in with nicely balanced hops and malts. Refreshing.

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.

The aroma jumped right out of the bottle when I opened it! Pouring it really let loose the spicy hop aroma that quieted down after a minute. Off white head with ok retention. Deep golden color, maybe a little foggy? There’s a good malt balance to counter the profuse hops. This is a good beer for tasters who want to try an IPA but aren’t crazy hop-heads.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Aroma of tangerine/grapefruit over sweet honey. Appears a clear golden yellow-orange with a small white head and noticeable effervescence of medim-sized bubbles. Flavor starts buttery with sweet malt and finishes with a dominating hoppy bitterness that is earthy. Palate is medium-light, slick, and with a lingering aftertaste that is not altogether pleasant. Overall, this beer is just somewhat more than the sum of its parts.

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.

metalhead0043 (207) - Durham, 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.

I haven’t had this in a while and am pretty pleased. It is crisp than I remember. Nice soft mouthfeel and a clean finish. I will pick up a six pack again sometime.

Aroma - a little fruity Appearance - a little cloudy, nice pale amber color; little head Taste - Hoppy yet not bitter; medium strength, not the best aftertaste Palate - average Overall - A solid IPA; aftertaste takes away from overall good. Could be smoother
