This American Pale Ale is a refreshing session beer meticulously handcrafted with a unique Highland twist. Brewed with grains from Americas heartland, using Simcoe hops for bittering and dry hopped with Amarillo and Cascade for aromatics, this beer finishes crisp and clean. It is a plate pleasing seasonal experience.

Pours a gold color. OK hop aroma. Head lingers around the edge of the glass. Taste is tart, hops are bitter and up front. Bitter on back end. Mouthfeel was full. An OK Beer, alright for a warm spring day!

Bottle. This was not as good as I thought it would be. Aroma was grapefruit with a tad of the peel thrown in. The taste was hoppy but not in a pleasant way. Gold color, not much head.

An exceeding average American-styled pale ale. Pours clear light yellow with little head. Aroma shows saltine crackers, piney, grapefruit. Thin bodied the amped up bitter finish is thankfully short.

Drake (13300) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Lowes Foods in Hickory, NC. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized frothy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of green, earthy and peppery hop notes with some pale malts. The taste is very much the same, though a little bit fainter on the malts. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.

12oz bottle pours clear deep gold with white head. The aroma is sweet sugary malts mixing with citrus hops and spicy hops. The flavor has crisp spicy hops supported by some tangelo and grapefruit citrus hops as well as mild levels of floral hops and sweet sugary maltiness. It gets mainly spicy hop bitterness and grapefruit into the finish with a pretty thin body to boot. Nice refreshing hoppy brew nonetheless. I like it.

Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Perfumy hops. Perfume with very light caramel malt. A bit thin and watery. A pretty nice beer.

Hay, dandelion, and lemon zest nose. Clear amber, headless. Delightfully floral flavor of dandelion and lilly.Light body, somewhat somewhat sessionable. Hoppy for an APA. Little malt presence. Clean finish. A hopheads APA, but not very well rounded.
