In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Tallgrass Brewing Company Ethos IPA

Aroma: “Very floral, light peppery notes and a hint of malt sweetness. Lemon and tangerine hops up front with a hint of pine.”

Flavor: “Very nice light sweeter citrus notes with hints of tangerine, lemon, and grapefruit and some piney, grassy, and resinous hops flavor too. Hint of carbonic bite in the finish. Delicate malt sweetness supports without getting in the way. Finishes somewhat dry and bitter but not lingering.”

Overall: “Very nice balance of hops flavor and bitterness. Light, approachable example of an American IPA with some newer hops complexity and a restrained bitterness that makes it great for a variety of palates. The body is a little thin, but hardly worth worrying over.”
