Super dry and hoppy. Lots of hoppiness and crackery biscuity malt. On draft itís lightyears better than bottles or even cans. This is usually my go to airport beer for some reason. Itís perfect for crushing before a long flight. Sweetwater beers are always excellent and this is kind of a staple for them. Definitely consistent whenever you have it. Cheers!

Tap pour at Mtc Office. Aroma of citrus, mostly grapefruit, with hints pf pine. Taste of grapefruit with mixture of floral and pine. Very slight hop bite at end. Pretty enjoyable but not distinctive.

Bottle. Strong citrus aroma with grapefruit and lemon as well as just a touch of pine resin. Pours cloudy golden colored with one+ finger of white head with good retention but no lacing. Starts with a lot of grapefruit citrus hoppiness and acidity as well as a bit lemony citrus. Finishes dry with danky pine resiny hop bitterness and some floral hops also. Pretty good, but it finishes a tad harsh for me.

HighlanderOne (1174) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Poured from bottle. Good hoppy aroma. Good lookin orange with lacing. Nice hop balance for a pale ale. Hop flavors are floral and pine. Sweet malt backs up the hops well. Pepper notes. Very good pale ale. I will look for this one again.
