COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American Pale Ale is a refreshing session beer meticulously handcrafted with a unique Highland twist. Brewed with grains from America’s heartland, using Simcoe hops for bittering and dry hopped with Amarillo and Cascade for aromatics, this beer finishes crisp and clean. It is a plate pleasing seasonal experience.

12 ounce bottle from Lowes Foods in Hickory, NC. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of green, earthy and peppery hop notes with some pale malts. The taste is very much the same, though a little bit fainter on the malts. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.

12oz bottle pours clear deep gold with white head. The aroma is sweet sugary malts mixing with citrus hops and spicy hops. The flavor has crisp spicy hops supported by some tangelo and grapefruit citrus hops as well as mild levels of floral hops and sweet sugary maltiness. It gets mainly spicy hop bitterness and grapefruit into the finish with a pretty thin body to boot. Nice refreshing hoppy brew nonetheless. I like it.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Perfumy hops. Perfume with very light caramel malt. A bit thin and watery. A pretty nice beer.

Hay, dandelion, and lemon zest nose. Clear amber, headless. Delightfully floral flavor of dandelion and lilly.Light body, somewhat somewhat sessionable. Hoppy for an APA. Little malt presence. Clean finish. A hophead’s APA, but not very well rounded.

craftbeerdesign (2167) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2011
bottle. this is one solid session beer loaded with hops! At 4.5% alcohol, I could drink this all day in the summer. pours a golden color with a slim white head. big dank citrus hop nose with a touch of underlying malt. medium body, crisp throughout with tons of bitterness. the Simcoe hops shine through with big pine and citrus notes. aggressive finish that sticks with you for such a lighter beer. this one showcases some great hops and is worth stocking your fridge up this summer.

12 oz. bottle as a trade bonus from emacgee- thanks again, Ethan! Pours a clear, bright gold with a big white head that laces the glass. Aroma presents a ton of herbal hops, lemon citrus, grass, bread, and peppery spice. Flavor of herbal hops, dry bready yeast, pepper, lemon peel, lemongrass, and a late mineral note. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, herbal mouthfeel. Nice APA.
