COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Lordy, that’s as red as the devil’s britches," exclaimed a local rancher, awed by the vibrant canopy ablaze on what is known today as Devil’s Britches trail. Highland Brewing Company commemorates the history of the Great Smoky Mountains and Devil’s Britches trail with a rich, red IPA. Ashburne Mild malt produces a toasted and biscuity flavor, and Extra Special malt renders an alluring red hue. Apollo hops provide aggressive bitterness(70 IBU), while dry-hopping with Calypso hops yields complex fruity and floral aromas with hints of pear and apple. This devilishly delicious ale is Highland’s twist on the great American IPA.

Serving: Draft. It pours a dark copper color with a small off white head. Earthy, piney hop nose. Light caramel and bread notes in the flavor, but the real star here is all the hops. Solid pine and floral notes from start to finish. Medium bodied with a lasting bitterness. Prett good.

Pour ruby in color with frothy light tan head. Aroma is piney bitter citrus. Taste is slightly sweet but mostly bitter. There is some slight caramel nuttiness underlying the bitterness. Nothing too special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

foyle (424) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours with a 2” fluffy cream colored head. Significant lacing and moderate carbonation. Color is a reddish brown and slightly cloudy. Aroma: floral and some citrus hops dominate the aroma with pungent hop oil very noticeable. There is also a toasted bread malt smell. Mouthfeel: medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. This finishes mostly dry. Flavor: bitter hops combine with a somewhat ‘burnt toast’ flavor from the malts, but there is enough sweetness to maintain some balance. There is definite grapefruit taste along with some earthy and floral character hops. The malts hide in the middle and background with some whole wheat bread toast and hints of caramel and slight green apple.

12oz bottle. Red color, white ring. Aroma is if fruity esters, simple sugary malt, and some resin. Sharp hop bite, toasted malts with a touch of caramel malt characters. Very simple. I’ve had American Pale Ales more complex than this IPA. A bold beer for a session. (3746)

Comes out of the growler - crud, it fizzes like nobody’s business, and when I finally get more beer than foam it’s a lovely clear mahogany with a VERY thick and fluffy wheat head. Dang, you just look at the growler and it starts to fizz over. Strong and hoppy aroma has an apple overtone and notes of hay and citrus plus a hint of - cloves? Hoppy flavor is woody and scarcely bitter, quite fruity with equal parts apple and sour orange, subtly malty with a snip of cloves. Yes, that is cloves. Texture is thin and watery but has good fizz. A devil of a good IPA.

Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Malty, filling, with a fairly neutral flavor and finish.

Bottle. Looks exactly like the picture about 300 px up and to the left. Aroma is full of hops and malts - plenty of citrus in here. Taste is not as good as the aroma, kind of put off by the amount of malts in this one. It is a good beer, but I would rather drink Kashmir I believe.
