32oz Growler from Beverage World in Ft. Oglethorpe, GA. Kegged May 3, 2012. Served at around 45F.
Pours mostly clear amber with a three finger white head that leaves a ring and some drips of lacing and holds a small cap.
Aroma is orange, apricot and floral hops, a bit of fruit, pine, caramel & bread as well. Good strength.
Flavor delivers more of a kick with a good bit of orange and citrus, apricot, a little pine, decent caramel malt backbone, moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness. Well-balanced IPA.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, moderate carbonation.
A solid IPA. On the balanced end of the spectrum and I usually go for the unbalanced hop bombs, but this is still very tasty. Very easy drinking, goin’ down fast!
Serving type: growler

Why do I think a slightly hoppy Bud Light. Better than Coors but not by much. Very disappointed. I really would have been better off with a Bud Light or Coors and saved about five bucks! I would not recommend this beer at all. It's the first High Point I've tried and probably the last.
