Highland Devil's Britches IPA

Mark my words, Highland Brewing Company is about kick things into overdrive. You will soon see Devil’s Britches, and new “red” IPA. This newbie will be hoppy, but also with a touch of toasted/biscuity flavor and fruit notes from the hops.¬†While most of the seasonals Highland releases are named after protected mountains, Devil’s Britches is actually a trail near Cataloochee Ranch.

Lordy, that’s as red as the devil’s britches.” exclaimed a local ranther, awed by the vibrant fall canopy ablaze on what is known today as Devil’s – Britches trail. Highland Brewing commemorates the history of the Great Smoky Mountains and Devil’s Britches trailwith a rich, red IPA. Ashbume Mild malt produces a toasted and biscuity flavor,and Extra Special malt renders an alluring red hue. Apollo hops provide aggressive bitterness 70 IBUs), while dry-hopping with Calypso hops yields complex fruity and floral aromas with hints of pear and apple. This devilishly delicious ale is Highland’s twist on the great American IPA.¬†
