North High Wildcard!
Amber color with a lasting creamy off white head. Soft nitro mouth feel. I find the vanilla a little distracting. Some bready malts and a subtle hop profile. Interesting...

12 ounce can at home . You can smell the jalapeno. Medium beige head that melts away pretty quickly. Hazy honey color. Not hot but has more jalapeno than lime flavor. Smooth but kind of hard to drink if not use to the jalapeno flavor. Overall different not my style but worth a try.

North High Life
Can from VE. Nose sweetish golden ale territory, pale malt, touch of apple juice. Pour slightly hazy pale golden with a soapy bright white head. Taste light-medium sweet, low bitterness and tartness, touch of tannic bitterness instead of astringency, hint of metal and mineral, also touch chalky coating. Alcohol does come through (like a malt liquor), medium-strong graininess from the malt, no caramel but a little added complexity there, white grape, and a bit of dirt from the yeast. Bit of banana ester, sticky lips, medium-full body. Fairly fun if you can take macro swill, think they largely pulled it off. [2017.09.23: 2.5]

ganache
2.1
North High Jalalima
Can from VE. Nose surprisingly full of hot, very earthy and green jalape[n]o, very lightly sweet but essentially distilled pepper. Pour rich but lightly hazy golden with a soapy beige head. Taste medium-sweet with low and earthy bitterness, peppers, some malt still shining through. Flattish and flabby medium body with a dash of caramel soon covered over. Lime is a bare squeeze but still outpaces the suddenly vanished chili -- where did it go? No capsaicin heat, but does retain some of the flavor. A legit "vegetable beer". [2017.09.11: 2.1]

Sample at Daily Growler UA during the "Collaboration Celebration! Sports & Jorts & More" event on 08/04/2017. Clear pale orange color with a medium thick white head that evaporates gradually to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of yeast, malt and fruit. Medium highly effervescent body with flavors of champagne yeast, fruit and grainy malt. The finish is white grape and malt. Decent overall.

North High Oktoberfest
Can from VE. Nose mild caramel and amber malt, very slightly nutty. Pour clear and rich amber gradient, dark golden drifting up through tawny oranges to mild reds; head is ugly soapy beige. Watery body with light sourness, touch of red berry in the background, some orange citrus; very mild toastiness and nuts, not really biscuit, more like mild amber malt and pils, minimal melanoidin; tartness/sourness cranked too high, no bitterness, moderately dry. Don't want this -- want malt, not a consideration of hop contributions of pH optimization. [2017.09.05: 2.3]

North High Life
Well. I grabbed this can because it was cheap and I thought it would taste like a can of miller high life; after all, the label has many similarities and its said to be sparkling! I just wanted a gentle refreshing brew after I cut my grass with the riding lawn mower, hah. Pour is pale enough, but its cloudy. Smell is a tad citrus. No hint of the alky content. Looks like a mild blonde; anyway. But, the first taste tells you it wants to give ya a knudge in the palate with some bitter buzzshit. Sparkling? Maybe, at least it has some medium co2 to carry it thru. Hey, no way I would have ever thought this was over 6% until I started to get mello, hehehehehhheh. Now I see it is a golden ale? At 7% Golden or blonde? Strongest blonde I’ve done in a while. WTF? How could this possibly be in the same style as these tremendous local brews? Indigo Imp Blonde Bombshell, Rusty Rail Blue Collar, North Country Bucco Blonde, Paladin Sir Kenneth, Numbers The 330 Blonde Ale or even Beaver Risque Blonde. Get lost! ! ! They know how to make beers around Beaver County! This brew? It’s a blonde. Local or not, real or not, this north high life, she continually gits in yer face. How annoying.

Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a hazy toffee color with a medium sized fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry with citric and perfumey hops. The flavor was dry and bitter with strong perfume followed by citrus and chalk. Long perfume and citrus finish. Medium body. Not good.

Nice flavor profile overall.

North High Haybomb Hefeweizen
Can, actually smells a little tart to me. My can says 51%, & suspect its past the due date, says 1265 on the bottom. A little haze, but not enough to call it a hefe. Visibly sparkling. No real sign of banana in this. I detect the nose is like hay that sat wet for a day. It thinks its trying to be a hefe but never really quite gits-thar. No real sediment on the pour but there was a little on the bottom of the can. At least it doesn’t come across like a crude rude clear wheat ale. Good, mildly cutting co2 on the finish. Not bad in the end, improved as the session continued.

North High Jalalima
This beer pours a clear, medium to dark golden color with many streams of little bubbles rapidly and continuously rising to the beer's surface. Has a nice fluffy white head that's well over an inch thick when first poured that settles to solid 1/2 if an inch thick with good retention and very good lacing. Aromas of chili peppers and lime alright, and in a good way too, along with some bready caramel malts. The taste is pretty much the same, with a bready, just slightly toasted, caramel malt sweetness that gives way to some chili peppers spice with a bit of a nice bite and lime. Rounded out with a touch of herbal hops. Nice balance of flavors. The heat burn from the chili peppers is mild overall, and its just there enough to make its presence known during and after each sip. Has a crisp, slightly prickly, also smooth and frothy medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish, and the spice heat of the chilies sit nicely on the palate in the aftertaste. A good beer here all around. Glad I picked this one up. Would certainly drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

North High Grapefruit Walleye
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/12/2017. Pours fairly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/pine hops, grapefruit juice, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, pine, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness; and slight tart/tangy grapefruit on the finish. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops, grapefruit juice, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is an excellent fruited session IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/pine hops, grapefruit juice, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth crisp, and highly refreshing to drink with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Very dank/vibrant hop flavors, with great grapefruit juice balance; and a nice malt backbone for the low ABV. Just the right amount of bitterness for the style. A really enjoyable offering.

North High India Pale Ale (IPA)
Can from Troy. Opaque dark burnt orange with two finger white head and lace. Great smelling IPA. Pine hop, floral, citrus, malt, fresh water and caramel. Taste doesn’t live up to its smell. A rather drab malty IPA. Basic but not offensive. Floral and citrus. Quick palate. Still lacey though.
