A - poured into a pint glass. These tall grass beers pour a fat heads 2 finger creamy head. Color is a murky golden Amber color kinda like a frosted cider color very beautiful. Not seeing a lot of bubbles. The head took awhile to diminish but is leaving solid lacing

S - biscuit like Smell at first.. Then loads of hops right away I get pineapple and citrus light fruits. Bread Smell and malty notes. The smell is amazing very complex and sweet smelling

T - this is different... But in a very good way, first off I get loads of hops pineapple and tangerine very dominant. Then comes in the warmth of the bread and malts covers the palate. But after it fades this is the different part I get a sweet cotton candy like taste that lingers for awhile I can't stop smacking cuz it tastes so good. The bitterness is just right

M - very creamy medium body feel with a creamy only finish.

O - this is an amazing ale. Prob my favorite pale ale so far. The complex aromas and tastes you get from this is amazing. Very drinkable and refreshing. Great job Tallgrass

Enjoy

First had back in 2012, and off and on since, always from a pint can and usually poured into nonic pint. Although not quite up to Tallgrass standards, this "hop rocketed" pale ale in a pint can is a worthy occupant of river/beach cooler space.
