Highland Southern Sixer IPA marks the Asheville, North Carolina based brewery’s first seasonal of 2017. It’s a hoppy one. ;
Six varieties of hops make Highland Southern Sixer IPA, including one never used by the brewery before, Ekuanot. (Once called Equinox.) Ekuanot along with Mosaic are the hop headliners, making this beer uniquely fruity and resiny.
Knowing the name well in advance, the brewing team had fun making every possible aspect of this beer relate to “six,” from the number of hops to the ABV and IBUs. Even the packaging, typically offered in 12-packs, is available only in six-packs. – Hollie Stephenson, Highland brewmaster
