On tap.
Wow, fantastic hoppy aroma and flavor. Bursting with orange juice, lemon, grapefruit rind and pine resin.
Smooth juicy feel, and lingering layers of bitter citrus rind.

Fantastic!

This was super smooth for 8% ABV. None of the flavors overpowered any others and for it being my first beer from Grimm, I was super impressed. Poured from a 16 ounce can into a stemmed IPA glass.

When a beer is superb, my eyes tend to close to better experience great flavor. This one is an eye-closer. Looks so much like hazy, citrus juice in the glass, you almost expect to encounter pulp. Multiple hop flavors come at you in succession, including a long, luxurious pine run out that doesn't quit. Brilliant!

CAN
Cloudy apricot; mashed mango + Sunny D; tangerine, mango juice, and huge ringing candied orange that goes skunky + herbal in little flashed; soft + long.

4 4 4.5 4.25 4.5

Mosaic, El Dorado, Simcoe, Falconer's Flight, and Columbus

Intense without any harshness. Mad depth with no burn. All the New Englandness. Name fits; lots of little echoes. Behold, the quality.

Hints of pine with slightly more prevelant notes of lemon and mango.

Opaque, light yellow. Pour leaves a foamy layer which decreases to a thin layer after a mintue or two. Traces of the foam cling to the glass.

Medium-bodied and crisp. Moderate amount of carbonation.

Complex in smell and the taste. Don't really taste the alchohol so it sneaks up on you. The pine adds a little bite, and is a good substitute for hoppy bitterness .
