Style: American IPA

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Head High is our interpretation of an American-style India Pale Ale (IPA). This beer is all about the hops; we use a blend of five different varieties all grown in the Pacific Northwest. A small charge of Chinook and Columbus early in the boil adds a smooth bitterness. A majority of the hops are then added late in the kettle or post-fermentation to produce a beer that is heavy on hop flavor and aroma. The combination of Cascade, Centennial, Citra and Columbus give Head High a noticeable grapefruit flavor with aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and pine. Our house American ale yeast ferments to a dry finish that accentuates the use of imported Pilsner and lightly kilned crystal malt resulting in Head High’s straw color and crisp flavor.

Appearance - Nice wheat color, very light

Smell - Piney nose with a touch of grapefruit. Beautiful aroma

Taste - Strong hop flavor, nice grapefruit taste

Mouthfeel - Hoppy bitterness, crisp taste

Overall - One of the best East Coast IPA's I've ever had, if not the best.
