Tallgrass 16-Bit DPA

The Tallgrass Brewing Company is in Manhattan, Kansas. This is a 6.2% ABV Double Pale Ale. I really enjoyed their 8-Bit Pale Ale, so I have been eager to try this ever since I heard they were brewing it.  It took awhile, but I finally got a can of it.

The beer pours the color of orange tinted honey, with some dried apricot thrown in. It has a tall, foamy, bubbling head of white. The aroma is ripe tropical fruits, mango, orange, citrus, and a bit of pine. The taste follows the aromas, a fruity hop explosion of tropical and citrus notes, ripe, lush, sweet, yet tangy. The finish is moderately bitter and dry. The beer drinks amazingly smooth. This is great! It was a long wait to try this beer, but worth it.
