1.45/5  rDev -59.9%

Appearance: Pours a hazy orangish-yellow with virtually no head.

Smell: Yeasty, bready, doughy.

Taste: Same as the smell but with a noticeable pine hop taste. It almost tastes like a homebrew with a mild bacterial infection.

This beer is so bad that I couldn't properly determine mouthfeel because I suffered holding this beer in my mouth. It's awful.

12 oz bottle. poured a cloudy light amber color, with very little head that didn't stick around, and very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Taste is nothing special, there is citrus from the hops and maybe a little residual sweetness. Carbonation is weak, and the beer is thin. Not something that I'd go out of my way for.

2.5/5  rDev -30.9%

Appearance: Clear; golden straw; small white frothy head; dissipates quickly, but good lacing

Aroma: Malty; citrusy hops

Taste: Thin, hoppy bite up front; too much like a pils, which is not my favorite style.

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

12oz brown bottle, no obvious date information, but 342 B1 02118 was inkjetted on the bottle bottom.

Cloudy faded copper. Short, dense head of small and medium off white foam. Slow to settle, leaving no lacing. Ample jetting carbonation streams keep the small floaties moving about. Soft grapefruit, floral nose. Like pasteurized juice rather than fresh squeezed. The flavor directly follows the nose, some thinned-out grapefruit juice notes, and a minimal malt presence makes this one dimensional. The Cascade hops are so non-aggressive as to not leave anything in the finish. Light to medium body with a limp mouthfeel, the carbonation is lacking. Merely passable.

A: Does not look particularly desirable. Minorly hazy copper/orange colored with an almost immediately dissipating off-white head.
S: Light smell of hops, slight citrus
T: Some hop bitterness up front with a lingering flavor on the tongue that I can't quite pin down. Pretty much the definition of average
M: Watery with too much carbonation
O: I actually like a lot of Highland's offerings, but this is not one of their better brews. It leaves a lot to be desired especially in regards to taste and mouthfeel.

Poured 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Clear amber body, light head left lace rings on the glass.

Slight sour smell. Difficult to discern other/any aromas.

Peppery Cascade hops up front, sweet malty background.

Modest carbonation. Thin body, raspy texture.

Nothing stands out about this one.

2.85/5  rDev -21.3%

Poured a deep golden with slight carbonation and some lacing left on the glass.

The nose was very hoppy. Floral. They use cascade for dry hopping and I think this may have put the hoppiness over the edge. They say it has a malt body to it, but I didn't catch that.

Very little malt in the taste. Extremely hoppy with a strong lingering aftertaste that did not suit me. I did not think it was very smooth.

2.85/5  rDev -21.3%

12oz bottle in pint glass (no date, but purchased ~2 months ago on the way to Savannah)

A: Copper colored and crystal clear, pours with a thin white head that dissipates almost immediately leaving a small amount of lace.
S: Very muted, not much in the way of hops, just a hint of floral. The grain character is more apparent, some bread/toast along with a little caramel sweetness. Where are the aroma/dry-hops?
T: Very bready/grainy with some sweetness, no hops at all, just a slight bitterness. It is not obvious at all that this was dry-hopped like the bottle mentions.
M: Crisp, good level of carbonation
D: This is not a bad beer, but it is not true to style. This is the last of the six, and I don't remember being super impressed with the earlier beers, so I don't think this is an age issue. It goes down easy without requiring any thought. It would be easy to serve to a beginning BA or your father in law. Not what I want in an APA. Would not buy again.

2.88/5  rDev -20.4%

Copper color with a thin white cap. Some grassy hops but I mostly notice sweet caramel malt flavors in the smell and taste. Really thin on the body. This one is short on taste and watery overall. Alcohol shows through at the end, even at the low ABV. Nothing special about this one and I really can't recomend that it's even worth a try.

2.93/5  rDev -19.1%

Had this one for the first time at Highland's fabulous tour in Asheville.

A- Deep golden body with a nice head and good retention. Pretty typical for the style.

S- Definitely the best part of this beer: Pine, biscuit, nice floral hops.

T- Biscuity malt, pine, some citrus, something off. Not sure what. Not a big fan of the finish.

M- Medium and a bit peppery.

D- Yeah...
