3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting beer, but I canít say I loved it. Copper pour with a nice head and lacing on the glass. Aroma is slightly earthy, with some biscuit/caramel matly notes. Not a ton of hops. The flavor features some of the same biscuit malt flavor, but this is overshadowed by a tinny bitterness that I wasnít a huge fan of. Good, but not something I would seek out again.

Wow...a bit too hoppy for my palate! It has a bit of a kick too. I can have one or two of these and thatís it fot both reasons. Might be best with a meal, not for just drinking by itself.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Keg and Barrel. Pours a clear orange-brown with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel malt, grassy hops, light fruits. Flavor of malt upfront with light citrus and bitter hops in the finish. This is an interesting beer stylistically- too malty for an IPA, too hoppy for an esb or amber, not quite strong enough to classify as an imperial red. Anyway, it is tasty and not too heavy on the palate.

Another outstanding outing from Tallgrass Brewery. I really canít tout our loccal/regional craft brewers enough. The other reviews and product description say it all.

From can. Slight caramel aroma with some EKG like aroma and taste. Lite laces on the glass. Imperial ESB? Try it.

Beautiful artwork. I wasnít sure what to expect. Hoppy resin, almost bready aroma. Intense hoppiness then it mellowed. Stilled ended as a big hop bomb. But just enough malts to make me happy and wanting more. Great Job

Can at sampling session. From notes (Oct. 11, 2011). Some light chocolate, caramel, earthy aroma. Pretty orangeish color. More caramel and light fruit in initial; nice dirty hoppiness in mid. Quite drinkable. An ESB with a bit of a punch.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma of this beer is hops and roasted malts, and the appearance of the beer is orangeish brown with a frothy white and prominent head. This beer is quite bitter when it first hits the tongue, but it finishes abruptly and significantly less bitter than it starts. It also has a medium-full body, a creamy texture, and flat carbonation.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. A really different beer. Caramel color, hoppy taste. Good. Weíre big fans for the artwork too.

Exceptional beverage with a unique blend of hops and malt, unlike any Iíve had. Nice caramel color, uniform thick head. Tallgrass gets high marks for a complete, but not overbearing hop aroma and a biscuity finish. One of my new favorites.
