Tallgrass Top Rope IPA

 This 6.0% India Pale Ale is from the Tallgrass Brewing Company of Manhattan, Kansas. It is inspired by the 1980's professional wrestlers, thus the name. The can says "Let me tell you something, brother..." I imagine in the voice of Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

The beer pours burnt orange and amber in color. There is a very tall, thick, foamy, head of off-white to very light tan. The aroma is fruity, apricots, citrus, tea and lemon. The taste follows the aromas, mild flavored, drinking like an English-Style IPA, ending dry with a moderate to fairly strong bitterness. The beer drinks easy and smooth. Drink this if you are looking for an English-Style IPA, but not if you want a West Coast style hop bomb.
