4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of the best IPAs Iíve had in a while. A good level of ABV at 7.2%, and a nice color - darker like an ESB. Nice malty backbone with lots of caramel, and the hops are citrusy and balance it out nicely.

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

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy Brown/Orange color with a hefty sized head and boatloads of lacing left behind. The flavors consist of Piney/Citrus/Floral Hops, bready-biscuits and some sweet caramel. This is also a very malty beer, even by IPA standards. Itís medium bodied with an almost chewy thickness to it, but itís smooth and creamy thanks to the lack of carbonation. Overall, itís an excellent IPA that any fan of the style should check out.

Smells like honey, hops. Tastes pretty bitter. Hops, golden raisins, pretty alcoholic, tastes like a can.

Tallboy. Aroma is very hoppy with a bit of malt to it. Taste is overwhelmingly hops at the beginning with malts towards the end. Bit of an ipa bite to the finish. Pretty solid overall. 7.2% abv.

This is a solid beer. Aroma: big pine/citrus, hops mix. Taste was the same but with a solid malt backbone. Sharp bitter finish. More like a DIPA to me.

very hoppy, citrus aroma.
very nice, long lasting white head.
extremely hoppy taste, bitter. Something dry, canít figure it out, doesnít taste too malty, but may very well be.
Fairly smooth finish for how hoppy it initially is.

A nice piney nose. Tastes like a strong/imperial IPA. Big, but not too malty like most imperial IPAs I find.

Tallboy can. Thanks to Ratman for this one. Pours an amber orange with a small head. Malty nose with tons of hops and grapefruit. Nice clean flavors and resiny finish. Loads of taste, My first beer from Kansas and it is a winner. Very refreshing ..

16oz. can: Poured a brilliant clear amber with tall pillowy head. Sparkling. A beautiful beer. Aroma of multi-grain malt, orange juice and bread and coriander. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Sweetness gradually gives way to an earthy bitterness (pine mostly). Bitterness really digs in on the finish with mountainous floral qualities. Medium body that seems lighter than it is because of the high carbonation. A delight to the tongue. An interesting beer. More similar to an English IPA than an ESB. A little less raucous hops might be closer to the imperial ESB label. I liked it though.
