Higher Ground is a outstanding All American IPA. You heard me:
All American. It's an unfiltered offering with a wheat feel to it without the muckiness.
Head retention is better than average with a nice moderate krausening lace. This beer is exquisitely crafted and not for folks that drink Shiner Bock. You know what I'm talking about.
Anyway, if you appreciate great craft beer, give this dark copper colored fine IPA a try or two.

Large mug of this on draft at an area restaurant. Color was a hazy gold with a minimal white head, though retention was good considering the initial size. Smell and taste were both heavy with citrus and pine. Finishes dry with a lingering citrus note on the palate. Overall it's a pretty good IPA, definitely worth trying if you haven't already!
