Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky orange-yellow color witha large white head. The aroma has a decent blend of fruit, yeast and caramel. The flavor is full of piney hops with a fruit backdrop.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 2/5/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, mango, apricot, pineapple, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome balance and complexity of bright/dank citrus/tropical/earthy hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, mango, apricot, pineapple, papaya, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, light caramel, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, mango, lemon/orange rind, pepper, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/dank citrus/tropical/earthy hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness from bitterness as well, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible IPA. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright/dank citrus/tropical/earthy hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Very nice beer, typical citrus flavor. Tallgrass has done a nice job with this one. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed. Would like to try it on tap.

10/26....tallboy can. Pours rusty copper, gold on bottom, heavy thick white foam. Grassy, soft malt. Bitter hoppy malt, light mouthfeel. Pine, persistent bitter. Lighter mouthfeel, oily. Not an abundance of defining characteristics but a smooth and solid IPA.

Out of a pint can, best by 12/27/15. Medium orange color, mice and hazy. Not much in the smell. But in the taste, oh my is that awesome. All kinds of juicy citrus hops and plenty of bitter. Feel is dry, not much in the way of sweet malt. This was my first Tallgrass beer, and I am impressed.

This beer has all the IPA bases covered. It would be the benchmark version if it finished stronger. Tastes bigger than it is.
