3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Promising sweet, fruity aroma with a solid dose of hops. Some biscuit as well. Cloudy dark gold body with plentiful carbonation that
is mostly masked by the particalia-ridden nectar. Lasting, but thin, frothy off white layer of head that leaves dense lace
even before first sip. Initial flavored include a breadiness. Fairly dry but balanced with enough sweetness to make
It work. Hops are pretty moderate but are in the solid range for
an APA. I am really impressed with these guys. Not sure where I got my negative first impression but, either they stepped up their game or
my opinion was not based on legitimate information.

Good clean beer with a floral taste and slightly dry finish. Brewed in Manhattan KS. My buddy might move there and run a Hy-Vee.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint can via localswap4. Pours lighter golden with a marshmallow of a head. Wow this just looks inviting! Aromas of citrus rind, sweet caramel malts, pear, and a bit of pine. The flavor is much of the same but the body makes this beer. Just super drinkable and so much flavor are packed in here. Not to mention the can art work is gnarly as all hell. Another winner in my book from Tallgrass and I need more asap...iso!!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy golden amber-orange color. Nice frothy white head. Aroma is grassy, faint citrus and floral. Taste immediately hits the back of the tongue with the bitter pine flavors, which give away quickly a lightly sweet malt backbone and finishes out in that sort of salty bitter quintessential pale ale way. Body is perfect with the right carbonation level. I like my pale ales to have a little more sweetness to the body and a cleaner less bitter ending (just my preference)...but this one is good and I’d certainly drink it again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the October 2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was soapy with vague fruits, cardboard and bubblegum. The flavor was dry and bitter with vague spicy and fruity hops that were a bit rough. There was an undercurrent of Pine-sol. Long dry, bitter and rough mixed hoppy finish with a hint of bubblegum. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

16 oz can. Pours yellow with a nice white head. Nose is caramel and tropical hops, albeit light. Taste is more tropical, fruitiness, minor pine notes, caramel. Highly drinkable and a nice seesion brew.

Poured from a tallboys can received from unclemike. Pours a lighter copper with a white troth of foam. The aroma is light and slightly fruity. Bitterness is buried behind a hefty sweetness. Its almost indicative of an English Pale Ale. Its an interesting beer.

Hazy dark golden color with lasting ivory head. Dusty pale grains, dry spicy hop, mild floral aromas. medium body. Grainy biscuity pale malt flavors with some dusty spicy hop-not very bitter--smooth easy drinking---not bad.
