BBD: 9/9/13
Hazy sunshine orange, lasting foam and collar of lace around the edges. Sticky spotty lacing, great retention.

Subdued citrus aroma, caramel malt.
Bitter citrus peel flavors, grapefruit, and mild caramel malt in the background. Medium bodied with an ample bitterness. Dry aftertaste, bitter greens linger long after the swallow. Overall it's pretty good, would like to try a fresher can once it hits the local market.

Pours an effervescent gold/honey with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Great lacing & very good head retention

S: Breadyness, grassyness, lemons & grapefruit as this warms.

T: Grapefruit, lemons, aspirin , pine& a touch of pears & breadyness up front. Some herbal bitterness as this warms, some grapefruit peel, & dryness. Finishes with much grapefruit, a bit of pine needle & faint breadyness & pear fruittyness

MF: Medium bodied, fairly firm carbonation, fairly well balanced for the style

Easy to drink, not a world class IPA, but a great canned offering that I will buy more of without hesitation!

Yet another score from Binney's (South Side) in support of The CANQuest (TM)!

From the CAN: "110 IBUs". Well, now.

I have to mention what I assume is Ethiopian cave art as I have no ethics, nor do I give a spritz about ethnicity. I CAN be found in the ether. Either there or in the CAN.

The Crack revealed a brimful CAN that spritzed a little on my finger just to let me know how happy it was to see me. An inverted Glug later and I was off to the races, creating two-plus fingers of dense, tawny head with great retention. Color was a slightly hazy orangish-amber. Nose smelled of mandarin oranges and caramel. My mouth watered, my heart sped up and I was ready. Mouthfeel was slightly thin, perhaps accounting for the relatively low ABV, but the citrusy hops were like scrubbing bubbles on my tongue, stripping away the dead taste buds. The taste was very orangish, but 110 IBUs? Not one over 105! Man, this was eye-opening and in all new and different ways. The hops locked onto my tongue and refused to let go. Finish was semi-dry with the caramel maltiness kicking in to offset the intensity of the hops. Now, I was starting to feel it. Well done, Tallgrass!

16 ounce can, Drink before dating on the bottom of the can - 10-29-13

Pours lightly hazed lighter amber, topped by an off white fluffy head that stays pretty well and leaves thicker strands and blobs of lace.

Nose of grapefruit, nice and fruity

Quite pleasant IPA, nicely hopped with notes of more soft grapefruit and assorted citric qualities. Bready and hoey infused malts bring up the rear and add balance. Drinkable and better then average IPA.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of hops oils, citrus hops, sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops oils, citrus hops, sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, great appearance, decent aroma, and decent body.

Ethos is a solid IPA that was brought over by my awesome neighbor. The beer poured a nice copper color with white head that did not leave much lace. The scent was fresh hops that leaned toward bitter. The taste was an evenly balanced IPA with good malt and bitter hops through the drink. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a solid offering.

A thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has an orange/golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very hoppy, a bit of citrus. Taste is strong of hops, very bitter, dry, piney, no malts to speak of. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
