Tallgrass The Grizz Imperial IPA

This 9.5% ABV Imperial India Pale Ale has 85 IBU's and is from the Tallgrass Brewing Company of Manhattan, Kansas. It is part of their new Explorer Series. It uses Cascade, Citra, Magnum and El Dorado hops.

The beer pours a light amber and burnt orange in color. There is an inch of white foamy head that leaves lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrus, light tropical fruits, and toasted malt and caramel. The taste is a strange meld of toasted malt and intense passion fruit and guava. They don't really mix well together. The finish is spicy and moderately bitter. The beer drinks full and smooth. Overall, I'm not sure what to make of this one, but it did in fact get better as it warmed up.
