A - This one's a gem. Body is a surprisingly dark red-amber color. Very unique and enticing-looking DIPA. Two fingers of off-white foam that has very good retention. This is the 3rd Tallgrass beer I have reviewed and one thing they always seem to get right is the ridiculous amounts of lacing their beers are able to produce.
S - Lots of spicy pine and citrusy herbal character. I also get a decent hint of the malt body in the form of caramelized sugar aroma.
T - A hefty dose of sweet malt up front that is quite clean and caramely. Bitterness is milder than I expected, but is still quite noticeable on the back and sides of the tongue with each sip. Sweet citrus and dry, spicy hop flavor are noticeable throughout as well. Finish is bitter with some chocolatey roasted grain flavor. Overall, the two dominant flavors by are are bitterness and super-sweet caramel. I could do for a bit more well-balanced beer.
M - Thick and chewy. Finish is quite syrupy and gives the impression one is drinking a glass of hop oils. Good carbonation.

Wow!! This one was a very pleasant surprise, after having Ethos, my expectations were that this one would be inferior, but in my opinion, that was NOT the case. One thing, I prefer piney IPAs vs grapefruity ones, which makes me biast in favor of this one.
As mentioned above, this has a piney hops flavor to this one, a lot like Sierra Nevada's Torpedo, which I adore. I'm not experienced with the ESB part, so I can't say much there, but overall, this beer absolutely hits the spot, and I will be a regular customer year round.
