COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Head High is our interpretation of an American-style India Pale Ale (IPA). This beer is all about the hops; we use a blend of five different varieties all grown in the Pacific Northwest. A small charge of Chinook and Columbus early in the boil adds a smooth bitterness. A majority of the hops are then added late in the kettle or post-fermentation to produce a beer that is heavy on hop flavor and aroma. The combination of Cascade, Centennial, Citra and Columbus give Head High a noticeable grapefruit flavor with aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Our house American ale yeast ferments to a dry finish that accentuates the use of imported Pilsner and lightly kilned crystal malt resulting in Head High’s straw color and crisp flavor.

mansquito (7127) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Can from brewery: pours a so uncool mostly clear with an off white head. Aroma is pineapple, pine, citrus. Taste is tropical and citrusy, some light pine. Bitterness is there in moderate doses. Falls somewhere between a more traditional IPA and the contemporary juice bombs. However, it attains that balance with finesse and immense drinkability.
