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.

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.
