Tallgrass IPA
(Tallgrass Brewing Company)

Tallgrass' IPA has such an awesome design for the style! I am a total sucker for great marketing and I was definitely drawn to this one almost immediately. I bought this particular can of IPA on a recent trip out to the hometown of Tallgrass so I know its fresh and I'm really looking forward to diving in! 


From the Tallgrass site:

"Tallgrass IPA, is an India Pale Ale that is rich, complex, and flavorful. We are proud to be the first brewery here in the Great Plains to have the first brewed, bottled, and draft IPA out on the market!"

Here we go...


Pour - bright and shiny orange with some yellow and golden highlights as well as a perfectly formed inch of super white head.


Aroma - lemons, limes, plenty of maltiness and graininess as well as some caramel and chocolate covered oranges.

Taste - spicy and citrusy but not over the top grapefruit or pine. This is a much more balanced IPA, almost leaning towards being the pale ale that isn't in the Tallgrass lineup. Plenty of maltiness that really has the flavor of the brewhouse with a more subdued hop presence. 


Overall - If you want mouth numbing hops you need to crack open a can of their Oasis. This IPA is a nice, smooth bodied ale with a great balance between citrusy hops and caramel malt. Its not going to clear your sinuses or burn the enamel off your teeth, but it will go down smooth and make you happy.


Would I buy more of it? - sure thing. Its a solid enough brew and I'd be happy having a four-pack around a campfire anytime.

Note - Tallgrass had some slick looking labels for their bottles before they started canning all of their beers but the IPA didn't feature the elephant. Personally, I think it was a great decision to rebrand and start canning. From what I gather, its done a lot for Tallgrass.
