On tap, pours a beautiful glowing orange, slightly hazy, with a nice white head. Smell is super fruity--orange, tangerine, peach--along with a spicy resinous hop quality. Taste is the same, starting fruity then getting a bit spicier. Slight bitterness in the finish. Super drinkable but enough heft in the feel to give the beer some body. Overall, another fantastic Grimm beer, just incredibly clean, complex and delicious.

Bright golden hue with some orange highlight, big white head and great lacing. Aromas are soft but sweet fruity hop. Notes of light cracker, grapefruit, underripe stone fruits, and sugar coated Meyer lemon. Lighter end of medium, crisp, clean and dry. Solid IPA with some nice flavors, great for the summer.

Picked this up a while ago in New York, since it was a Grimm Ale and I tend to go after as many as I can! The date on the bottom of the can was 7/11 and of course, I rolled this to suspend the hop particles as well. While not the best of what I've had from Grimm, this might have been the most easygoing of all of their beers as this was a total juice bomb from start to finish, as well as having a low and recessed alcoholic content!

This had a nice, golden hue to the pour that shone well and complemented the large, fluffy head that took quite a while to settle down but stuck around for the duration as a web of soapy residue on the side of my pint glass. Not a terribly strong aroma to this but there was plenty of orange, tangerine, and tropical fruits to be detected from the get-go. All of those were present in the taste, as well as grapefruit pith and some underlying dank pine that gave this a bit of much-needed depth. Clean, medium-bodied, and somewhat dry, there was some sweetness to the malt and not a lot of carbonation here, as the flavors lingered for a while before softly fading away; leaving hints of melon and honeydew on my palate.

There was alcohol in here but it was only felt when I finished this off as a slight warming effect took hold. Not full and spicy like some of the other Grimm Ales that I've had out of a can, this was a northeastern IPA that made no bones about it. If you like them smooth, juicy, and just a bit dank, look no further than here. Another solid beer by Grimm that went down easier than the effort that it took to obtain this!
