Highland to Add High Pines IPA to Year-Round Lineup

North Carolina’s largest native brewer is announcing the release of High Pines IPA – an imperial IPA brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe, Centennial, and Comet hops – as the latest addition to its year-round lineup. Named with the forest and fresh scent of mountain pine in mind, the new beer will be distributed across Highland’s Southeastern distribution footprint in 12-ounce cans this February.

“At Highland, we are working hard to make some of the best IPAs in the industry and following the success of Rising Haze in 2020, we wanted to take it to the next level by offering an Imperial IPA,” said Patrick Sullivan, Highland’s Sales Director. “High Pines is a big, delicious, piney IPA that is easy to drink even at 9% ABV. This beer has done extremely well

in our taproom and we expect it to be a solid addition to our year-round portfolio.”
At 9% ABV and 65 IBUs, High Pines is a big West Coast IPA with resinous blueberry and piney hop flavor.

Highland brewer, Jesse Lapinski, said “High Pines was made in the tradition of old-school West Coast IPAs. While it does not shy away from big bitter, resinous hops, it has a good malty body to balance that bitter, piney flavor.” Lapinski continued, “My wife loves the label and I think this is the perfect beer for a bonfire or a winter warmer into springtime.”

High Pines will be available in six-pack cans at the brewery and at retail stores throughout Highland’s distribution footprint in the Southeast beginning mid-February.
