This is a rarity in America...a true India Pale Ale! The dry, hoppy flavor burst in your mouth from the first sip. wade (58) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2002
One of the better beers I’ve had recently. yupnc (2) - Arden, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2003 does not count
To my taste buds, this is not only one of the best IPA's I have had - but one of the best beers. It has a great bitter IPA taste, nice color, and a great finish. A very solid beer. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2003
An outstanding example of an IPA. Nice clean flavor with a great hop kick. Great all around. UNCCTF (584) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2003
Orange coloring, floral aroma, HUGE off-white head with great lacing and thickness. It's got a nice malty start, but the kicker is those Cascade hops. The hops don't screw around in this beer. This beer almost makes up for the lousy beer laws in North Carolina... ALMOST. This is awesome, AND it's only $6 for a six of 'em! Beautiful.

Great dark colour, with a very hoppy nose. Flavour was tremendous, and the hops definately stood out. A great overall IPA, one of the best i've had in the past few months! jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Excellent IPA. The Carolina breweries (including Highland) make some great IPAs. Great color, excellent flavor, and it even smells good. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2002
An excellent IPA! Defines balance! There, now I’ve got my exclaimation points out of the way. Malty/hoppy delicious teeter totter between a bit of harsh throaty bitterness and sweet bits. The most beautiful coppery color. Yummy. Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2003 Reddish/orange appearance. Flavor is citrusy and very well hopped. Orange, pine, and maybe some rasbperries? This was a nice IPA. Why smoke Endo when you can drink it? Izzle. belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2002
A very nice smooth IPA. Great hop aroma and the taste to go with it.
