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.

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.

FROM NOTES: June 29, ’12 From a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. A: Fresh, crisp aromas of grassy hops with a lightly toasted caramel malt profile. A: Pours a clear light gold with a dense and creamy white head that settles to a thin cap, leaving some lacing. T: More clean notes of grassy hops, citrus, and lightly toasted bready malt. Nice and drinkable, perfect on a hot day like today... P: Smooth and light, with a thin body and good carbonation. O: Seems like sessionable hoppy beers are starting to populate the shelves of beer stores these days, and I like it. This is a fine one to add to the bunch!

Bottle, thanks to sevenhokie! Hoppy aroma with citrus and pine notes. Pours golden with a very thin white head and basically no lacing. Very smooth to start with a bit of earthiness, pine and citrus. Finishes dry with a bit of a bite from the hops on the finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
