Big pillowy eggshell head atop a gorgeous, clear orange pour. Huge nose....earth, citrus, grass. Not as much flavor coming through as the nose led me to believe. Pine and orange peel. Decent bitterness leads to a quick finish.

Tap at the Hopleaf, Chicago. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head, broken white lace and high carbonation. The aroma is grassy hop. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a hoppy weak spice citrus palate. Nice and drinkable but lacks body and flavour for me.

Very citrus aroma mostly orange with some slight lemon and orange peel. Lovely orange gold color. Off white head with decent lacing. Taste is juicy orange citrus with great backend bitterness. The bitterness is like and a grapefruit rind. My favorite local iPa as of now.

Best by 12/27/2013. Pours a cloudy orange frothy head. Smells faintly like pine, citrus, grapefruit. Tastes like a lot of the same, some sweetness from the malt. Decent balance. Mouthfeel is fine. Overall an ok beer that tastes like it could be fresher. Doesn't live quite up to the hype I've heard, honestly.
---Rated via my tastebuds and my brain.

Can shared at CBC Islington during the Ryan Tasting - big thanks to Ryan himself for this beer. Solid IPA. Tasty, well balanced, with notes of citrus and light, dried pine. Quite drinkable.

Bottle cheers to Ryan. Notes have gotten very vague now. But apparently ’fuck I like this.’ Super super danky and big. Nice

16oz can thanks to RobertDale! Pours a dirty hazy burnt orange color with a finger of creamy off white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, pineapple, caramel malt, and grapefruit. Taste of pine, orange zest, grapefruit, apricots, and caramel malt.

16 oz can at Memory Lanes poured into a pint glass. Copper color and hoppy aroma. Lacing strong indicating a good level of freshness. Almost overly hopped leaving balance to be desired. Aftertaste lingers slightly more bitter than you would expect. Good, not great. Choose this one over other Tallgrass varieties.
