i like things like this. old school.

very pale, yellow beer. thick head dissipates to soapy lacing. crisp and a touch spicy with good hops bitterness that lingers. decent carbonation and a clean finish.

kind of like your wife, this is familiar and you know you'll like it. there may be flashier things out there, but this is one you can keep around and people will know you've got pretty good taste.

12 oz can, drink by 10/21/17. Pours hazy golden orange with a big fluffy white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet vegetal malts with some fruit.

The flavor is sweet crystal malt with a little biscuit and lots of citric fruit and a medium bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent fruity pale.

Serving glass: Poured from can into Nonic Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Light, hazy honey-gold with foamy, stark white head.

Smell: Dry, tart and sweet all at the same time. Grapefruit, mango, pineapple and tea.

Taste: Dry malty backbone with tea and caramel that is fairly English-like. The hops are definitely not English-style, with orange, grapefruit, other tropical fruits, spice and floral notes. It is actually hard to pick out individual flavors, as it is all integrated very well. Fairly bitter finish for an APA.

Feel: Medium bodied, with a fantastic firm creaminess. Carbonation is relatively low, and the finish is nice and dry.

Overall: Nice APA that actually manages to be original in a category that is usually pretty straightforward. I hope this raises awareness and sales for Tallgrass, who, while hit or miss in my opinion, definitely hit at least a triple with this one.
