COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lovers dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one youll remember.

Unclear orange and creamed head. Nice hoppy fruitaromas and also very wellrepresented with hops in the flavor. Dry and crispy in the finish.

HighlanderOne (1304) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Poured from bottle (8/2008). Lotsa hop in the aroma, as it should be. Cloudy amber, thin head persists. High amount of hops in flavor, but not overwhelming, and a great blend with the malt. Creamy feel. Good finish. Another great IPA made in the USA.

Pours a dark yellow, almost orange color with a small head that lingers for a long time. Sweet hops smell with a taste that is even sweeter. Nice bitter finish.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2008
draft at brewpub- a nice and tasty beer with a fine crisp dry finish that I always enjoy in this style. Although far from the best in class, I would go to again.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours a clear copper amber with thick white head that dissipates to a bit thinner layer. Aroma is strong caramel and hops. Flavor is solid hops with caramel undertones. Pretty standard IPA nothing amazing to note. Body is light the high carbonation.

Crushed a lot of these last weekend at pitchfork music festival at Union Park. Really everything you could want in an IPA: nice strong hop taste, good caramel backing. But, honestly, in the 90+ degree heat, it’s hard to drink a lot of these. I still did, but it was hard. But, you know, I’ve always believed hard work reaps big rewards.

sja14 (108) - Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Amber colored with a modest aroma for an IPA. Great hop/malt balance and not as much floral bitter as most IPAs made with the american hops. Good IPA.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at Quintons. Nice and hoppy aroma, citrus lemon mostly. Came with a decent small sudsy white head, ok lacing, blonde orange in color. Taste is nothing really too crazy but good, alot of fresh citrus hop, some GI style roasty toffee-caramel type malt, good finish, slight spicy hop bite, medium to light feel. This beer will always be dear to my heart, especially in IC.

12 oz bottle into tumbler. Light bronze pour with a minimal white head. Soft citrus hops define the flavor. The is no alcohol presence at all. Light carbonation and body. Refreshing and drinkable brew. Great for hot summer days/nights. Overall: very solid.

just poured a 12oz bottle of this into my trusty beer glass. It has a nice orange/amber color. The aroma is a little weak for my liking. And then the taste; It’s a bit on the weak side for my tastes, It’s almost between a good pale ale and a mild IPA(which is kind of an oxymoron) But I would buy it again, if the price was right Cheers!
