Pours orange, copper in color with a slightly off white head that had decent retention as well as decent side glass lacing.
Aroma: Sharp citrus as well as yeast and bread
Taste: Surprisingly, I get more bready malts to start., then the tangy citrus of orange, lemon rind and grapefruit. Not a fan of the grapefruit, but there is enough else going on that it is tolerable.
Finishes with the citrus hops, and a dry bitter hoppy finish that can make you pucker up.

I took some jalapeno poppers over to my neighbors house last night for a little get together. In exchange for the food, I got a run of the beers in the fridge. This was one of them, I had never had it, so I decided to partake. Side poured from the can into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance - Pours a standard copper colored hue with a nice, two finger head that dissipates relatively quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. I really like the packaging on the can, I'm guessing it is a shout out to Paleolithic art or something of that nature. Anyway, pretty cool presentation.

Smell - Orange peel and grapefruit are the big movers in the nose, but there is a yeasty, bready undertone that balances it out a bit. Little but of grains as well.

Taste - Pretty good! Well balanced, the yeasty breads are the first on the palate, followed by the expected hop kick from an AIPA. Citrusy grapefruit is the name of the game for these hops, nice breadiness to balance the hops kick.

Mouthfeel - Finishes smooth, clean, and bitter with the hops. Very good, little evidence of the alcohol content.

Overall - This is a pretty good beer from what I would consider a solid brewery. While Tallgrass may not have any game-changers like Russian River or Three Floyds, they have certainly carved a niche for themselves in the Midwest providing good beers like this at a reasonable price, all in the can. I would certainly recommend this beer to anyone! Condor recommended and approved.
