Started out with thick head and strong hoppy aroma. Taste was absolutely delicious with a moderate bitter quality and malty and dry aftertaste. A great IPA!.

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,.

Bottle pour of bright clear yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with grassy earth notes and a hit of lemon peel. Taste of aggressive bitter grassy hops with a touch of sweet malt to smooth it out and a citrus acidity that keeps it bright. Light to medium body that is smooth but clean and has a long, strong and bitter finish. Overall a beer that stays true to it's roots and provides a refreshing punch to your taste buds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit too light in color, and a cloudy pour with an unusually white head to it. Not an agressive hop character, but very well put together. I prefer a more hopped brew, but this was still a better 'textbook IPA' than my preferences, which go towards more bite. Not my favorite, but a well brewed and balanced IPA.

Golden (slightly orange pour). Slight white head that dissipates. Aroma of sweet caramel malts overpowering any hops. Taste is bitter hops and caramel malts. Not much in the way of flavor hops. Good beer, but not the best example of an IPA.

A golden pour with sharp floral aroma. Soft mouthfeel and a bright, lasting hoppy finish.

Purchased at World Market, Winston-Salem, NC Good taste; wanted a bit more but still had solid flavor and bitterness.

I am the first to admit I rate IPAs high, but I have to say this one was a little too harsh for my taste. How many IBUs does this beer have. Overall good, but it is not for the faint of heart.

Not sure how they call this an ipa. Aroma is citrus and hay like. Bitter up front then finishes very astringent. Was difficult to drink so I chugged the rest of it. Then I drank water, not another one.

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.
