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.

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.

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.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours gold with a fizzy white head. Nice citrus and floral aromas. Maybe even apple. Not quite medium body. Flavor is light malt with a decent amount of hop. I’d say citrus and floral or grass. Definitely bitter, but this is light. A very good candidate for session or flavorful lawnmower. Very bitter IMHO.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2011 A dark golden color with a white head. Aroma has grapefruit, oranges, and pine. Flavor contains grapefruit, orange, lemons, very bitter. The shock here is its under 5% so hopeheads this is your perfect session beer. Im a hophead btw

12 oz bottle - Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, grassy and floral hops, and slightly skunky. Flavor is faint citrus, floral and grassy hops, grainy malt, mild sweetness but finishes dry with lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is light with a good amount of carbonation. I would lump this one in with pilseners - not the APAs. Not one of favorite Highland brews.
