4.33/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Bright peach with good lacing. The color is what makes this special. Very thick in appearance as well. Carbonation is excellent. Moderately bubbly and very heavy.

Smell: Wild orange blossom honey. Delicious.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Excellent combination of orange blossom honey and orange zest. Some notes of brown sugar or even molasses as well. Excellent full-medium body with an a slightly acidic finish.

Overall Drinkability: I will definitely be looking for more Tallgrass.

3.71/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a pale white head and medium beading. Nice carbonation and good head retention.

Smell: Light, sweet aroma with citrus. I would have liked a more pronounced smell though.

Taste: The Galaxy hops are the star here and they deliver a slightly sweet, citrusy flavor but not much else.

Mouthfeel: Light, highly carbonated and refreshing.

Overall: This is a nice, refreshing pale ale. It's not bad by a long shot but it does seem one dimensional and lacks any "wow factor". It's a nice light ale that'd be nice in the summer though.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from can into pint glass.

A - Color some is between yellow and amber, nice inch head with nice settling and lacing

S - Smell is very nice - mellow citrus, no pine

T - Nice all around - malty initially with some back end bitterness

M - Not too heavy, not too light - just about right for a pale ale.

O - Overall, this is a good balanced coiffing session beer.
