A brilliant, dry pale ale with an aggressive hop character balanced with a smooth finish. A bold beer best consumed with a stiff upper lip.

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.

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.

Not much aroma to this beer. This is on the lighter side of an IPA but with that said it is an enjoyable beer. It's hard to go wrong with anything from Highland brewery.

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.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Pours slight orange, golden color with a good fluffy white head that leave nice lacing. Full, but short-lived piney aroma along with some cereal malts. It starts off w/ a biscuity malt sweetness and then comes in with a quick punch of pine/citrus hops that mellow again on the finish. On the malty side for an IPA, but still well rounded and refreshing. I like it.

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.

Bottle into shaker. Pours a dense thick white head and leaves dense lace. Transparent golden amber color. Not much aroma, but what is there is light floral notes and earthy hops. Flavor is bland as well with light honey and hops. Flat upfront with lingering light bitter finish. Overall just meh.
