Canned 1/15/16; drank 2/18/16 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE eggnog head (careful pouring!); frothy tree-rung lace.

Pineapple, fresh flowers, fresh soap & mango notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Mango & fresh flower flavors up front; banana & honey notes on the finish. Booze heat emerged as this warmed.

Flavorful yet easy to drink; just a touch hot. A very likeable DIPA.

12 oz can, drink by 9/17/17. Pours hazy dark reddish gold with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is subdued - vegetal caramel cola malts.

The flavor is sweet caramel / toffee malt with fruity resiny bitter hops and a touch of alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice sweet malty resiny boozy DIPA.

Pours a light copper/orange mixture with a hug fluffy off white head that stays and laces very well. Good looking little brew, love to gobs of lace down my pint glass.

Aroma is over ripe tropical fruit, some light floral on a caramel/ honey sweet malt base. Not a hop forward big IPA but a nice balanced inviting one.

Taste is about like the nose good malt backbone but not overdone. Takes a few seconds for the hops to appear over ripe tropical fruits, some floral notes and even a little spicy hop kick. Its a big beer but balanced the 9.5% is noticeable but not distracting.

Mouthfeel is big medium with fairly mellow carbonation considering the huge head.

Overall a nice big I2PA big on malt and balanced like so much a hop bomb, but a balanced IPA is nice every now and then. Wouldn't mind having this one again when the mood hit.

The Grizz kind of reminds me of a beer we have down here in Texas called "Art Car" by St. Arnold's. Simcoe, mosaic smelling IPA (little tropical, little fruit zest) with a little bit of a syrupy malt. Not quite as pleasing tastewise as Art Car, I guess the extra ~2.4% is to blame. A little bit heavy on the malt, but that can be typical for some DIPA's. Overall not a bad beer. The price point and alcohol % was great (I do like to get a good buzz, what can I say) and I do really like Tallgrass's lineup (King Buffalo, Velvet Rooster, etc.) Cheers.

Like most Tallgrass, the aromatics are strong with this one. The taste doesn't quite deliver. The heaviness of the malt overwhelms the hop profile. It is a bit thick and syrupy. I love other Tallgrass offerings, but this one isn't my favorite.
