A: The beer is very hazy light yellow in color. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacing clinging to the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of mangos and lemons are present in the nose and are intermixed with notes of pine.
T: The taste has flavors of lemons, mangos and oranges, with notes of pine becoming noticeable in the finish and lingering into the aftertaste, although these are hardly resinous. There is a light amount of bitterness and if anything, the "bite" seems to be more from the pine than the bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has a lot of complexities in both the smell and the taste. The beer does a very good job at hiding any traces of alcohol so it's quite drinkable. I liked how the pine added a crisp "bite" in lieu of bitterness.

So drinkable. Perfectly balanced and way too easy to drink. My favorite Grimm IPA to date.

Pours a lightly hazy golden hue. Not as frothy dense as a lot of the fruitier IPAs of the Northeast. Peach and grapefruit aroma. Getting a lot of candied grapefruit, some peach, and strawberry. It's a little on the thin side. It's not super complex or have a myriad of cascading flavors. Pleasant enough to drink and I did enjoy this, despite any unimpressed tone I may have imbued in this review.
