bigben873 (153) - Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2011
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

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2008
12 oz. bottle in a pub glass

Appearance: apple juice. Not as clear and golden as some, but still lovely. Thin head.

Nose: On the weakish side. Apples again. Faint citrus; fresh, floral hops, light malt. Inviting, if somewhat faint.

Taste: This is where it is beginning to shine! Nice, nice. Earthy, complex hop concoction. Black pepper, turmeric, lots of citrus. Lovely and drinkable.

Palate: Harmonious, lingering. Goes down the throat and begs for another sip to follow.

Overall: Not my favorite IPA, but the taste is quite fetching and keeps me coming back for more. Highland exhibits a high level of quality across the board.

Pours an orange with zero head. Barely any smell. Tastes like a Pale Ale over other classed IPAs. Nothing going on. Citrus, pine, and bitter. Average.

Mirage52 (147) - New Market, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Poured from the bottle a pale cloudy gold color, big poofy head and lots of tracing on the glass. Not much in the nose, that’s where a poor sense of smell will get you. Beer is smooth and the body medium. Lively carbonation. The finish is what you’d expect of IPA: hops! Not as much as other IPA’s I’ve had, though. It went well with my BBQ chicken but to be honest I wasn’t craving another one when I was finished.

metalhead0043 (144) - Raleigh, 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.

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2008 Pours a hazy brownish orange color. Quickly vanishing head with plenty of lacing left behind. The aroma is a floral and citrus hops, with some maltiness in the background. The taste is citrus with a far amount of bitterness. The aftertaste is bitter hops and with a somewhat drying sensation. This is a decent IPA but slightly lower in hop kick than many IPA’s.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Pours a pale,pale golden with thin white head. Nose is faint with spicey hops and a very subtle sweetness. Taste is thin and citrusy with a mild hop bitterness. I had this a while back and remember it being a lot better.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Creamy IPa pours a standard ipa color maybe a bit more dark orange. Taste is heavy and creamy but with a pleasant hop palate. Its okay

forsides (118) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2009
hazy orange with a thick fluffy white head. aroma is grassy, woody hops... not as spicy as most american ipa’s. smooth taste... some bitterness and piney hop taste. body’s a bit thin. seems like more of an english ipa than an american.

Bottle: Pours a golden color with a small white head. The aroma was grassy and the taste was bitter and hoppy.
