COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Your first experience with this IPA is the citrus bouquet from its rocky white head. The initial taste is subdued but gradually becomes intense without any harsh bitterness. The Heartier the Better.

Clean and full amber pour with one finger of off white head. Nose is malt heavy with caramel notes and herbal hops. Getting some oxidation and piney notes. Full/heavy malt notes in the flavor with a piney and spicy bitterness. Full medium body with a resinous finish.

HighlanderOne (958) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2014
Poured from bottle. Big hop aroma. Orange amber with lacing head. Balanced blend of grapefruit, grass and pine hops dominate flavor. Also tasting malt, wheat, honey, hay and a bit of banana and pepper. Nice stuff.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a beautiful amber color with great clarity. About one fingerís worth of (off-white) head is formed; while itís not the best retaining, it has a good creaminess and leaves a bit of lacing behind. Quite a good-looking IPA. S: The hops are effusive, but not aggressive. Piny notes are at the forefront, with a slight melon, mango, and grapefruit undercurrent. Some biscuity malt tries to pop out of the glass at times. This one has an aroma reminiscent of - more than any other IPA - Sculpin. Thatís not a bad place to be. T: This is very piny in flavor, especially as it first hits the palate. A few twinges of grapefruit and melon tries to appear, but this is primarily a pine bomb. It finishes with some maltiness - and uh oh, itís crystal malt. That damn toffee finish is unmistakable. And sure enough, it cloys my palate after about 2/3rds the bottle. When they appear, the subtle fruit notes are absolutely the highlight of this brew. M: Iím not a fan of the finishing feel: itís far too tongue-scrapingly rough and even astringent. A shame, because it hurts the crispness this beer also has. Itís still drinkable, but in a rather unrefined manner. O: Not a bad IPA, but the potential to be great with only a tweak or two is there. All that does is make it even more disappointing. Cutting down on the crystal malt presence would go a long, LONG way. Quoth the TWC, nevermore.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a 1/4" off-white head that doesn't last. Aroma is mostly piney hops. Taste is well balanced with the hops and the malt. Finish is slightly dry. Good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
