Notes/Commercial Description:
Our third beer, Tallgrass IPA, is an India Pale Ale that is rich, complex, and flavorful. We are proud to be the first brewery here in the Great Plains to have the first brewed, cans, and draft IPA out on the market!

Tallgrass IPA originally came to life as a creation during Jeff’s early homebrewing days (batch Numero Uno), and it was consumed in short order by his friends who came over to cook out and help with the next batch. After some modifications over the years (because nobody’s rookie homebrew batch tastes all that great, but your friends will tell you it does) the recipe was dialed in to become what is now Tallgrass IPA. We love this beer and think you will too!

ST: Can poured into a glass

A: Clearer golden look. Thick head after pour.

S: Light aromas of citrus and fruitiness. Definitely get a hop aroma

T: Light taste with a hint of fruit. Some citrus, but not a lot.

MF: At first you get some of the malt instantly, but then the hops take over and having a nice dry finish making you want more.

O: Decent solid beer to have. When it comes to IPAs, I would say that this is a 'lighter' IPA compared to others.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy bright copper, with one finger's worth of white foamy head and good visible carbonation.

S: Sweet caramel, and some citrus and sweet pine hops - but the overall impression is not terribly hoppy.

T: Notes follow the nose, but this is more malt-forward than most IPAs around. Moderate bitterness in the hang but even this is balanced by some malt bready sweetness.

M: Medium body for style, good carbonation sensation, but it is a touch too hot given the style and the relatively tame ABV.

O: This is an acceptable but forgettable example of style. I was wondering if it might be a bit on the old side, but the "drink by" date on the bottle was 5/11/13 (drank 3/29/13).
