Look - pours an slightly orange red with nice white creamy head and lacing.

Smell - malt, a little citrus hoppiness.

Taste - Hop profile is more on the fruit punch side and I really like that. Solid malt biscuit flavors on the finish for a great balance. I'm a fan.

Feel - smooth, creamy, carbonated appropriately.

Overall - Because it isn't aggressively hopped I feel like it is underrated. A very nice well balanced IPA that impressed me.

This red IPA pours a rather clear redish-orange that is just a little lighter than good southern sweet tea. The head was beige and foamy but only about half a finger. The aroma is very nice citrus hops, apple, and a hint of spice and the flavor is like it. It has a nice medium body that is sweet and carbonated up front that turns crisp and finishes dry as you would expect from an IPA. This is a very well-rounded offering from Highland. My favorites from this brewery tend to be the seasonals. This and the Clawhammer Octoberfest are among them.
