Golden copper with a small white head. The aroma is citrusy with little malt. The flavor is similar but nothing amazing. Could use some more character.

Another fine offering from the Highland lineup. This English style IPA features a pleasant and drinkable complexity of earthy and floral hoppiness, along with a sweet bready maltiness. Citrusy and honey on the nose, light orange color and proportionate white head on the pour. Bitterness is not overbearing and is mild relative to most American IPAs, but still fits the flavor profile. Smooth and fresh, I haven't had a Highland beer I haven't enjoyed!

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing strung its way around the glass once the head dissipated. The smell had a nice glaze of bittersweet orange and orange peel. A nice amount of lemon sweet and bitter lemon peel come in as well. Light caramel came in to balance. The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and balanced nicely. A light caramel to sweet citrus balances in the aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was there and as an AIPA this one definitely gives off it’s bitterness against my tongue. Overall, pretty good AIPA that I would come back to if I could find it.

Slight hop aroma that is distinct yet doesn’t over power. Golden colored perfection with a slight cloudy appearance. Carbonation of this beer is visible in the bubbles that continuously float to the top. Smooth hop finish that is balanced with an almost "fruity" after taste. Great local IPA that is a shining example of the North Carolina brew movement!

Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Grassy, earthy, bitter, bread aromas. Hoppy, grassy, bitter, green hop aromas. A pretty solid, drinkable IPA.

jsquire (3509) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Golden color with a fluffy white head. Raw hop pellet nose. Crisp cracker and coarse bread maltiness followed by a strong grapefruit rind hop presence. Very nice traditional IPA.

Highland Kashmir IPA has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, a mostly clear, gold-orange appearance, some residual lacing, lots of bubbles, and noticeable lace left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up some apricot and sweet malt. Taste is of sweet bread, apricot, and mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Highland Kashmir IPA finishes semi-dry and refreshing. RJT

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2014
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

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.
