Citrus smelling - grapefruit, SRM 5 - pale gold, lace that last the entire serving, dry and plenty of hop bitterness. Another great beer from Highland!

Smooth, finishes a little bitter and a little oily. Enjoyable brew.

BOD 5/22/14. Pours a slightly cloudy medium amber. Exceptional head volume and retention, World Class lacing.

Nice nose of subtle herbal hops, with a touch of spice, over a biscuit and caramel background.

Light medium body that has a fairly smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a slight effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.

The flavor profile falls just short of outstanding. It is intense, but falls short in balance and complexity. It has a nice hop flavor focus (herbal, citric and rind) over a mild bitterness in the middle. Caramel and biscuit sweetness appear in the finish, but are overwhelmed by rind and pine hop flavor. This hop flavor lingers.

Poured into a Pilsner glass @ 55 deg. F.

Typical EIPA with perhaps a bit more substance than many. Floral citrus (grapefruit) notes that linger for a couple of minutes.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Clear golden with a white half-finger head that dissipated fast. Thin lacing.

S: Light malts, grainy, fruity.

T: Lager-y, grainy. A slightly bitter finish. Like an English Bitter meets a Lager. Not a good combo.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Kinda meh. Not my cup of brewski.
