Poured from a pint sized can. Pours amber with tan head. This beer is grainy, earthy hops,fruity, vegetal. Not a interesting beer, it was made big, just because.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish orange color out of the can with a sticky off white head. Thick toffee sweetness in the nose with a lot of resin. This is a big hoppy beer with tons of resin, pine, grapefruit rind and toffee sweetness. Lots of bready malts as a backbone to this big hoppy beer. There seems more alcohol than the 7.2%as shown. Big tastey beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Really hoppy aroma. Murky, dark amber. Really nice white frothy head and lace. Very hop forward flavor but smartly maintains the essence of
the ESB style. Along with their stout, which i had tonight, gained a new appreciation for Tallgrass as a brewer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 16oz can, pours a hazy redish amber with a thick off white head and lacing, the aroma is a little more sweet than I was expecting, a good amount of malt and caramel with a little bit of hops, aroma has a sweet front end of malt and caramel with a finish of hops, a little bitter but nothing crazy, a little bit maltier and sweeter than I usually like my ipas but I still dig this one, not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Toffee malt, very bready and yeasty. Has a toasty graininess as well. Good amounts of sweet ruby red grapefruit that transforms into a full on grapefruit bitterness and grows stronger and spicier through the finish. The malt a is dense and carries through as well.
