I've had tallgrass before but never reviewed any so I thought I would review this one.

Look: dark straw yellow to gold color with tight uniform head. Light haze.

Aroma: Very catty. Some piney aroma as well. A little lemony citrus in the background.

Taste: Nice spruciness, Aroma translates to the palate. It's refreshing but there's not a ton of the tropical and citrus flavors that I associate with great IPAs.

Mouthfeel: relatively thin mouthfeel. Good carbonation.

Overall(style): not a bad beer but lags behind what's coming out of the northeast and west coast. 86.25 points

A grainy backbone that carries through the beer, citrus at the front and bitter hops at the end.

Taste Rating in Words: It's an old, left to right, video game that pushes you, driving you through the level. There are some twists and turns but the game stays true to itself.

16oz can dated best by 2/17/17 in the bottom. Not much going on with nose or taste. Very average.

Poured from the can into a glass.

Bright, murky orange-yellow color.

Huge bright white head; nice lacing.

Hopped up pilsener smell; some citrus, some bread.

Thin mouthfeel.

Fairly boring flavor; some bread flavor, some macro-lager aftertaste, & very little citrus from the hops. I won't be having another.
