It poured out as a burnt orange color with a very foamy head. The background smell I picked up on were that of pine, lemon citrus. The tast was a well blaced citrus not overpowering each sip for me revealed a new layer of taste. Mouthfeel was was very light for an IPA. Only down, size is it comes in a four pack wish it could come in a, six pack

Ethos flaunts a vibrant orange body with good clarity. Stream after stream of carbonation rushes to the surface from what seems like every surface of the glass keeping the dirty white head alive and kicking. The foam is a solid finger in height, velvety, and leaves sheet lacing down the glass with the occasional clump.
Candied citrus peel runs from front to back. Loads of sweet orange and grapefruit have their fingerprints all over the nose. The malt base leans toward caramel but there's a dose of sugar cookie in there as well. Ethos is an all around candy like IPA. It's hop forward but there's a solid malt backbone as well.
The citrus is more vibrant in the flavor with bright ruby grapefruit and orange pith. Orange oils and bitter grapefruit juice. I have to say, I'm surprised at the bold hoppiness when compared to the nose. The malt base is still dense, with caramel and sugar cookie, but this beer is a citric hop showcase.
Citric bitterness is bold, much higher than expected. The body has a moderate weight with carbonation lively enough to be prickly on the tongue. The finish dries up rather quickly as the bitterness grows. An IPA that goes down easily.
The smell while good didn't seem to be anything all that special but the flavor is packed with all aspects of grapefruit and orange along with an assertive bitterness. The dry finish accentuates it all. I'll be picking more of these up in the future.

Appearance: Burnt orange color. Finger of head on the pour which settled around a half a finger. Thick lacing left behind at each level. Cloudy body with below average active carbonation in glass while drinking.
Smell: Bitter resinous pine hits first. Body of grapefruit, saturated tangerines, and mangos. Solid malt backbone allows the hop tones to shine through. Piney bitterness continue to showcase itself throughout the aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, big front of pine, resin, and more pine. The bitter tones continue to pummel the palate as some heavy, saturated citrus tones. Bitterness backs off toward the finish giving way for some lighter fruit tones.
Mouthfeel: Nice transitions of big bitter front to an easier drinking sweetness on the back end. Crisp hop tones with some lingering bitterness on the finish.
Overall: Big bitter single ipa. Without the slight backing off on the finish this could easily be mistaken for an IIPA. Been really impressed with each offering I've had from Tallgrass.
