Highland Kashmir IPA has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, a mostly clear, gold-orange appearance, some residual lacing, lots of bubbles, and noticeable lace left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up some apricot and sweet malt. Taste is of sweet bread, apricot, and mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Highland Kashmir IPA finishes semi-dry and refreshing.

Poured out a nice deep gold with a slight amber tint. The head has slight retention, with a thin disc and some nice lacing. The aroma is pretty mild, with some light malt aromas (think dried fruit). The taste is alright. There is neither the malt depth of traditional English IPAs or the hops of American IPAs. It's not a bad flavor, but it's not very complicated. The body is lighter, as an English IPA tends toward and it's not bad, but it's not really going to blow you away.

A: Poured into a Shaker Pint. Amber gold color with a one finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly. It does leave some nice lacing.

S: Malty aroma.

T: There isn't much going on here. I know this style isn't as hop forward as the American IPA but Goose Island does a better job with the style.

M: Light to medium perhaps as a result of the low level of carbonation.

O: I picked this up in a mix six as I've been wanting to try it. As much as I want to encourage NC craft, I won't be repeating this one.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, crystal-clear, golden-yellow coloring with a steady flow of carbonation throughout, and a short, filmy, clingy, white head. Aromas of floral hops, subtle caramel backbone, light fruit esters, and subtle bitterness. Flavors are bitter forward, with a tart citrus character of tangerine and grapefruit, followed by subtle toasted and caramel notes, and some floral highlights. The body is smooth, with a sharp edge to it. The aftertaste is more floral and sweet than anything, with fruity notes up front. The finish is smooth, somewhat effervesced from the carbonation, and slightly bitter. Very drinkable English IPA.
