From BeerAdvocate Magazine #79 (Aug 2013):

This is a friggin’ serious IPA. The bitterness is well above threshold; Tallgrass clocks this one in at 110 IBUs. Hop flavor is off the charts as well, but oddly (in a good way) there are bits of malt that make their way clearly to the taste buds. Insanely hopped, which is always fun, but putting that in a 16oz tallboy can, it becomes a treat.

STYLE: American IPA
ABV: 6.8%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Sticky lace, hazed pale amber

SMELL: Fresh-sliced grapefruit, fresh hop resin, pith, dank, peppercorn, fresh hay, clean alcohol

TASTE: Smooth medium body, intense bitterness, pithy, orange rind, juicy fruit, bready, slightly warming

Pours a dark golden copper with a light orange hue and a single finger head of off-white foam.

Fresh cut grass, pine, grainy malt, and some citrus notes coming through.

Citrus fruit, grassy, pine, and a caramel malt backbone.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, somewhat astringent, grainy, and citrus bitterness.

Overall, I dug the flavor and aroma of this one, but the slightly astringent/grainy mouthfeel degraded my score slightly.
