COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tallulah mesmerizes with tropical fruit aromas and a radiant golden glow. This show-stopper is dry-hopped with Calypso and El Dorado hops and will leave you begging for an encore.

dmac (4045) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a clear thinner gold body with an average sized soapy bright white head. Aroma of old wet toast, old caramel, molassess, raisins and white grape juice. Medium to fuller body, milky, soft to average carbonation. Flavor is blah, notes of dough, nuts, raisin, grapes, old caramel and molasses. Not a fan.

shoulderbroken (2062) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at Antenna America. Aroma is pine and citrus, lightly fruity. Bit of a stinky bite. Taste is nice and refreshing but think this is getting a first beer boost in my scores. Feels a bit inconsequential. Nice enough though.

EithCubes (4939) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Brewed on 05/28/14. Nose is slick and densely fruity, not vibrant but itís there, soapy with jam and light mineral, some vinous and Smartie (candy) character. Dark, dull copper with lighter golden highlights, but sort of burnished and ugly, still transparent with avg carb and a sudsy off-white head. Taste is dry and heavy with alcohol, lots of hop oil and some juice (but not sweet); bitterness is fairly low, very soapy and cleansing, very heavy full body thatís closer to flat than effervescent. Clean but not pulling me in for another.

HIGHB4LL (555) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, golden clear color, noo real lacing. Aroma: grapefruit, floral, caramel, sweet fruit. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, bitter finish, sticky texture, dry finish. Taste: sweet caramel into medium bitterness, sweet lasts as well though. Overall, nothing too special, and not something to seek out.

Rosehip and grass nose. Crystal clear amber, thick head. Nice rosehip flavor with pine accents in a honey base. Medium body soft carbonation, oily and slick. Very well done, nice balance and texture. Not as citrusy as I normally like, but I really enjoyed this.
