ACBF pour

A-Pours orange with a thick head for such a small cup. Head retains and leaves lots of remnants after my two sips.

S-Belgian yeast and a forecast of bitter, green hoppiness. Yeast is spicy and so are the hops but in far different ways.

T-More Tripel than IPA in my opinion. The yeast wins out and the hops, while, bitter don't lend too many specific flavors. It all works well together in the end.

M-Alcohol very well hidden. Bitterness is sneaky and ends ups being formidable. Medium bodied.

O-Love Grimm's artwork and I would like to try this in a larger quantity or any of their other beers.

$9 and change for the bomber bottle at DeCicco's in Ardsley NY,

No freshness/bottling date info to be had

Classic look to this one, pours hazed medium apricot, and leaves an all star fine film, frothy collar and developed fields of sheeting.

Ripe fruit nose with some Belgian yeast

Simply delicious IPA/Triple from this newcomer/gypsy brewer. More ripe fruit, more dense , but smooth resiny hops notes, some pepper and fruity and nutty Belgian yeast notes all over the finish.

Nicely crafted and quite delicious....looking forward to trying a few of the other options from these folks....
