Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass. Can says drink by 09-19-13.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big four finger off white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell:A nice sharp aroma of hops with lots of citrus fruit esters and some caramel malt. Good scent of ripe hops with earthy and floral hints of grass and some pine resin spice. Juicy citrus hop hints of grapefruit, orange pulp, tangerine, pineapple, mango, apricot, and lemon. Solid bready support of toasty malts with hints of caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Smell is pretty hop forward, although its more in the Midwest style of IPA. Very good.

Taste: Lives up to the nose, a very solid hop forward taste with good notes of citrus, pine, and caramel malt. Ripe and chewy hops upfront with good floral and earthy notes with some grass and dank pine resin spice taste. Good juicy taste of citrus hop esters. Notes of grapefruit, oranges, mango, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, and lemon. Solid malt backing with bready notes of caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, toast, and yeast. Very hop forward but the malt is not completely outdone. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, chewy, creamy, and very juicy. Finishes pretty dry.

Overall: A very good IPA. Tallgrass really knocked it out of the park with this one. Great mix of hop esters and a solid malt backing.

Served in a pint. Cheers to Corey for making me aware of this one. Best by 9/19/13.

A - Slightly cloudy light amber hue with an off-white head showing nice retention and lacing.

S - Lots of hops, bread and grass. Citrus, grapefruit and lemon as it warms.

T - Interesting blend here... Lively hop bitterness and a big sweet sweet malts mix uniquely. Complex fruits flow from the bitterness, making this an IPA I will not forget.

M - Medium body with above average carbonation.

O - Unique is how I describe this AIPA. Not necessarily fantastic and far from being a miss. I look forward to trying other brews from Tallgrass.

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

pint can labeled best by september. cave drawings cover the can.

look is light for an ipa, small fluffy head that lasts. smell is warm sweet hazelnut malt, pine and lemon in the background. taste is bitter pine and lemon with a malty background that you cannot taste, but only feel.

impressive beer from tallgrass, very well done.
