Let’s get something straight right now.  This beer’s name is not some kind of “suggestion” for commercial airline pilots.  No, this lovely amber IPA, which mingles full malt body, smooth caramel, spicy rye and mouth-watering hops is so refreshing that you’ll want to jump into that cockpit, strap in and – uh – okay, look, flying high refers to that overwhelming sense of elation that lifts your spirits high as you finish that first pint of this thirst-quenching ale, grasp the yoke, thrust that throttle forward, and uh…, oh well.  All right, we give up.  Just go ahead and tip back another one, relax and hit that auto pilot button, because a few pints of this delicious brew will lift you high and keep your head permanently in the clouds!
