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....

Appearance: 3.75 | Smell: 3.75 | Taste: 4 | Mouthfeel: 3.75| Overall: 3.75
A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles that covered most of the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose.
T: As in the smell, the taste is dominated by a blend of different flavors from the hops—grapefruit, lemons and tropical fruits seem to stand out in particular. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness. Notes of alcohol are noticeable towards the finish but these are mostly replaced flavors of tropical fruits as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The blend of hops used in this beer creates interesting complexities in the smell and taste. This beer wasn't that difficult to drink considering its strength, but the initial tastes of alcohol before the beer warmed up were a little of a put off.

The beer comes in an amber orange.
The aroma has tropical fruits of mangoes and peaches along with some green pine.
The flavor definitely tastes of a "triple" IPA. In the front of tropics and orange then onto that interesting Orval yeast. The finish is straight Falconer's Flight of green pine and leafy notes. Some bready malt and significanct sweetness.
A really well done high ABV hoppy beer.
