Ethos IPA
(Tallgrass Brewing Company)

The versatility of the American IPA never ceases to amaze us. Brewers continue to concoct new ways to brew this popular style and as consumers we are continuously rewarded. Ethos IPA, the newest canned release from Tallgrass Brewing Company, is double dry-hopped and brewed with six different types of hops. It rocks an incredible 110 IBUs and comes in at a manageable 6.8%. We've been hearing a lot of great things about this beer and are very much looking forward to trying it out for ourselves! Cheers!

From the Tallgrass site:

"The beer foretold in legend. Six types of hops are gathered from the corners of the world to make this legendary brew. This is no earthly IPA. They will write ballads, build monuments, paint caves, and sacrifice goats to this beer. They will drink Ethos and dance to shake the heavens. The aroma is the harbinger of the tastes to come. Big, bright, and beautiful, this beer exceeds all expectations and grants wishes. Twice dry-hopped and brewed with the aid of a dark alliance from another realm, this beer bestows upon you all the complexity of the hops' flavors without overwhelming your senses. Ethos IPA is a gift to you, beer mortals. Drink it and fulfill your destiny."


Here we go...

Pour - bright orange to golden amber in appearnance with an inch of off-white head on top. Carbonation looks good. A nice clean pour.

Aroma - wow. Loads of tropical fruit aromas and piney, resiny, hops start immediately start assaulting the senses. We could sit here and bask in the aromatic glory of this beer for hours OR we could dive in and see how all those aromas translate on the palate.

Taste - one sip brings a smile to our faces. The big tropical flavors from the hop bill are just amazing. They combine with grapefruit and pine as well as a solid malt backbone to produce an outstanding American IPA. Ethos is juicy, thirst quenching, flavorful, and is heavy on the hops. Even at 110 IBUs, this is not a one-side hop bomb. Its balanced with the malty sweetness playing nicely with the flavors of mangos, pineapple, and passionfruit. 

Overall - The double dry-hopping does wonders for the overall experience, providing a ton of hop aroma. This is one of the most aromatic and flavorful IPAs we've had. Certainly a winner from Tallgrass and an IPA we hope to find more of soon! 


Note - Tallgrass has made some memorable videos in the past that have coincided with their launch of new beers. Ethos is certainly no exception. Check out the video below:
