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.

12oz bottle bottled on 11/10/09. Pours clear amber with a one finger off white head, light head retention, some lacing. Aroma is subdued but has resinous, grassy hops, light bread, caramel. Flavor is some grassy, resinous hops, caramel malt, lingering bitterness on the finish. Slick, but a bit watery mouthfeel, medium/high carbonation. Average.

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.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours a very slightly hazy pale yellow with minimal fizzy and foamy white head. Aroma is light sweet floral hops. Flavor is dominated by a sweet sugared orange base, dry overall character with slighly resiny floral dry hop finish. Overall, nothing fabulous.

aroma is more malts than hops. There is bitterness in the but no real hop flavor. Did they forget to add hops at the end of the boil? Swing and a miss. This beer makes me want to ask chicks when are they due.

Ok beer. This IPA has a light piney hop taste not enough for it to have much bitterness. More of a sweet malt taste.

Sampled at the brewery. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of bread, earthiness and light citrus. The taste was of bread, earthiness and light citrus with a smooth moderately bitter finish.

Bottle pours pale yellow, slightly hazy, large frothy white head, spotty lacing, with soft carbonation.   Stale oatmeal aroma, no hop at all.   Very thin pale malt flavor... where are the hops?   Body is medium, mouthfeel is medium, but this beer is boring.   Not bad, just not an IPA by any stretch of the means... nor a Pale Ale.   Aggressive hop character?   Bold beer?   Um... at least it doesn’t taste bad... but its no IPA.   It tiz somewhat smooth tho... at least they got that bit of advertising correct.   Thanks goes out to goldtwins for the trade!

not the best offering from highland. has a sour hop finish, a mild front with hops in the middle, but it is not an overall very hoppy beer, has a sour tint to it....

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.
