A clean and crisp pale that is easy drinking. Little something extra in the hop profile--little spicy even. Nice. 12oz bottle pour.

On draft at Hunahpu Day. Pours a yellow-gold with a white head. Nose is some light sweet malt and some grassy and floral hops. Flavor is similar with grassy, floral, and piney hops. Light in body and a nice starter pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
on draft poured a copperish red color with a white head. a typical APA, nice nose of malts and hops. the flavor pretty much right down the middle of the road. good malt backbone...maybe some caramel in there and pretty standard amount of hops. nothing over the top and quite drinkable. medium bitterness on the end almost finishes dry.

Copper pour, white head. Pretty standard fare. Lightly hoppy, some bready malts. Nothing to go crazy over but solid.

Had on tap at all souls pizza in avl. They have a
Good lineup of spring beers on tap even though
It doesn’t quite feel like spring. This pours a straw yellow
With a decent one inch white head. Taste is clean
And crisp. Nice citrus happening. Mouthfeel is pretty
Light and carbonation on high side. Feels sort of
Light and refreshing. Probably exactly what highland
Was going for. Nothing standout or spectacular, but
Totally solid. More is not always better.

NIce but a little too thin. Fine brewed but not much to say about it. It is enjoyable while relaxing.

For a session ale, this one has all the aroma and taste of a nice citrusy IPA.
There is a nice grapefruit-pine bite at the end which is sometimes lost in session IPAs. Highland makes sure it doesn’t taste any different than their bigger meatier IPAs.

Slightly musty, slightly floral malt aroma. Longneck, OK label. Mineral, tangy, lightly hoppy, mild citrus. Medium body. Mild tangy finish with some hay and graininess. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from his Boston road trip.
