Poured from a 16 oz can into a Duvel tulip.

A - Cloudy dark mango orange (pretty much matches the color of the can)with a huge 3 finger pillowy white head. Ring sits around my glass until finished. Plenty of white bubbly lacing on my glass.

S - Some citrus and over ripe tropical fruit. Hints of dank and slight chive mixed in with pine and floral accents.

T - At 110 IBUs I thought this would be bitter, but it is somewhat tame. Nice pine and citrus mix with caramel and honey sweetness. Some over ripe tropical and pineapple comes in the middle. Finishes with more pine bitterness.

M - Big carbonation with a medium/light body. Slight oil and residue in the finish.

O - Better than average IPA, but nothing I would seek out. I expected this to be a big blast of hops at 110 IBUs but was letdown somewhat. It has a nice flavor. Bonus that it comes in 16oz cans.

A good, but not great beer. Like most Tallgrass beers, it finishes far too sweet with too much body. The carbonation is excessive, but not outrageous.

Color is a hazy orange. The head is a billowing off white. The smell is a bit off putting. It has a passionfruit, papaya, melony, grapefruit, dank, resiny thing. But then you get hit with a cherry cough syrup smell, and a candi maltiness. The cough syrup smell is out of balance and overpowering the more delicate smells.

I'll give it to Tallgrass, they can make a beer smooth as silk with bitterness. >100IBU but it doesn't linger inappropriately. Assertive, but not bad at all. Taste has a citrus, primarily grapefruit and cloying sweetness. Finishes far too sweet. Very nice maltiness.

Overall, a beer that is decent, but not great. Needs a bit of work to dry it out a bit, less of the cherry cough syrup flavor and aroma, and a more focused bittering.
