Kashmir IPA from Asheville’s Highland Brewing Company is an English-style IPA, which more spice and less pine than you’d find an American west-coast style IPA. The scent is of toasted grain and lemon, and there’s quite a lot of citrus (predominantly orange) in the flavor as well, all the way through the finish which has warm, bitter orange rind notes. It’s a fairly full bodied beer, but with a relatively low alcohol content at 6% ABV. It’s not as bitter as some IPAs, but it’s definitely bitter and a really well crafted English IPA.
I give it a 4 out of 5.
