This American Pale Ale is a refreshing session beer meticulously handcrafted with a unique Highland twist. Brewed with grains from Americaís 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.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2011 First off, I am aware that Highland names their seasonal brews after mountain peaks in the area, but dang, "Little Hump" has got to be one of the worst names ever. Or maybe one of the aweseomest. Either way, itís certainly eye catching. Anyway, this is a pretty simple beer, but right in my wheel house as far as what I like in a session beer. Light an crisp, nicely hoppy in a slightly citrusy way, and a crisp and unassuming malt base. Tasty stuff.

Bottle. Very light gold with an inch of head. Se citrus and light floral in the nose. Malts almost overtake the hops but it's not bad. Some coffee ground flavor as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clean beer with a light/medium body. Mild, but pleasant bitterness. Taste is simple but pleasant for a hot day.

[ Bottle ][ 12oz x3 ][ The Cotton Room Durham ][ Free ][ Mason Jar ][ 5.17.15 ]
>> Sparkling straw pour with good foam. Nose is wet dog (volatile), lemon drop candies, orange rind, grassy hops. Taste is similar but lighter bodied than expected...grassy, sharp, easily to drink, rindy citrus bite, slight sticky lemon drop candy hints at bottle age, which was about 3 months old. Still, quite good and though not exactly billed as Session IPA, thatís essentially what this has accomplished.

Bottle. Pours clear light gold. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, grapefruit, orange peel, and light floral notes. Flavor is a great balance of dry malts and grassy/floral hop character and some faint citrus notes. Light/medium body.

malvrich (121) - durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2015 From bottle to a tulip. Filled 03/11/2015. A: Pours a rich gold with an inch of craggy eggshell foam. A slight haze but maybe from chill. Average carbonation and very good head retention. Nice lacing also. S: Pronounced citrus aroma. Lemon/orange more than the expected grapefruit. No malt scent that I can discern but the beer is very cold. T: Taste is a sort of hollow lemon and toasted sourdough. Seems watery. Potential is there but disappointing actually. I know low ABV is an objective here, but this needs more malt body. A slight vegetal note becomes evident as it warms. Doesnít help. M: Very light in body as expected with more carbonation than shows in appearance. Average. O: As much as I wanted to love this, I honestly canít find much to recommend. This Ale looks good and smells delicious but the taste fails to live up to expectations.

Pours Golden, fairly clear into tulip. 1.4 inch head, small lacing. This tastes very close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Must be the Cascade hops, which both brewers use. Thatís good, because I love SN Pale ale. Drinking a little more, this comes across a little thin. I would interchange this with SN Pale Ale, except that SN Pale Ale is much more economical....

Tasty American pale ale but nothing to really brag home about. Nice spring drinker.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Serving: Draft. It pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Pleasant citrus and grass notes in the nose. Light pale malt notes up front with a solid hop bite. Not too aggressive, just about right. More citrus and grass in the finish. A nice little session brew.

light amber color; citrusy, grapefruit hop aroma; a dry, citrusy pale ale; very light malt background lets the citrusy hops shine; dry, bitter finish
