Highlander Mount Jumbo IPAHighlander Mount Jumbo IPA
Notes: Mount Jumbo IPA is powerfully hopped, but yet rich and inviting on the palette. Brewed with generous amounts of five of our favorite Pacific Northwest hops. Although it packs a stronger ABV percentage, its hoppy-ness will bring prolonged satisfaction, without overpowering you. It is particularly tasty when sitting in the Montana sunshine. The real Mount Jumbo is an iconic mountain at the base of the Rattlesnake valley, in Missoula. With its silhouette appearing as a sleeping elephant, the mountain was named after the elephant Jumbo, the first African elephant transported to Europe, in 1862. Although a Missoula landmark, Mount Jumbo is a mere 4,767 feet high.

Purchased a six-pack of Highlander Mount Jumbo IPA on a trailer trip in Montana.

Pours a rich gold/copper color, clear with a modest white head.

Smell is a mild citrus scent with a hint of sweet bread in the background.

Taste is very well balanced, A sweet bread and caramel flavor up front with a mild pine and citrus finish.

Feel is medium bodied, slightly cloying.

Over all a nice IPA, well balanced with a bread with a caramel presence.
