3.25/5 rDev -6.1%
Bottle > Alpine Spring bow-tie pint.
A - Hazed straw yellow, half a finger of fizzy white head, medium lacing.
S - Lots of spice and wheat, some biscuit, pepper, dark earthy tones. Not really appealing.
T - Mild biscuit malt, pepper, rye, some clove, a little grassy.
M - Medium feel, nothing outstanding.
O - Not going to return to this one. Really missing the hops.

I had this beer out of a 12 ounce bottle. Say and smell appraisal was done through a small plastic glass just a sample size. Served cool
Pours a decent white foam head and a yellow orange body old gold
Smells of grain cereal with a distinctive British hop aroma
The green flavor certainly in front with the medicinal herbal hop flavor pervading the rest of the way
Medium to high carbonation
Overall not a bad beer at all I would certainly drink this again the choice of which seems like mostly British house feels a bit one dimensional though. This is a great beer for anyone who likes British hops

Bought a bpttle of this yesterday to try because it's by a young local brewery and this particular beer is top rated as "most popular" of all beers at a local shop.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into my new Innis & Gunn stemmed glass.
a: Translucent light gold with a finger thick head which vanished rather quickly to a thin ring and a little lacing. Not too impressive so far.
s: Almost none, can't put my finger on what.
t: Mild to moderate pine/grass hops, reminiscent of Genesee or some other mainstream mass-produced brew.
m: Light to moderate.
o: Disappointing. I read reviews here where the color is described as darker, and all sorts of other flavors are reported than what I found. Can't explain that.

High & Mighty XPA has been my go-to, every day all-purpose beer for a couple of years now. It is currently my favorite pale ale, perfectly mixing hops and malt for an absolutely smooth, delicious combination that's neither too sweet nor too bitter, neither too light nor too heavy, and neither too weak nor too strong (in terms of ABV). In an unusual twist of fate (for better or worse), they are building a brewery right next to my house :)

Pours a murky golden color with a dense one inch eggy head that dissipates slowly, leaving spotty lacing.
Grain, grapefruit, and tangerine comprise the initial aroma. Reminiscent of fruity pebbles.
The flavor has a fairly citrusy base, with lime and tangerine underlying a somewhat stake, bready malt body. There's a grain character at the finish, which is slightly dry and bitter and tinny. Alcohol is evident.
Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and a touch of harsh astringency.
Overall, a pretty citrusy version of the style, but there are some offputting flavors that detract from the experience.
