On tap at Croxleys in Farmingdale. Delicious DIPA from Grimm. The Galaxy hops really shine through on this one. So good I had to order a second one.

Another impressive product from Grimm!

Hazy color similar to the inside of an acorn squash. Lightly carbonated so pours a thin foamy layer which quickly dissapears.

Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit, lime and peaches are present.

Taste: This is a classic juice bomb. Presence of pineapple, mago, perhaps a bit of papaya. A requisite amount of bitterness--which adds cleanliness without being astringent--balances this out perfectly with the fruit flavors. It smells slightly more malty than it actually tastes.

It feels light- to medium-bodied and "juicy" on the palate, again, with a light amount of carbonation.

A: The beer is cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that settled down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit, lime and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of limes, mangos, and pineapples without much in the way of apparent bitterness. Some hints of grapefruit are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and "juicy" on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England-style IPA has a diverse variety of aromas and flavors in the smell and taste.

Serving type: can

The helipad is interfering with my nose on the ferry terminal, have to wait to be on the boat to appreciate this one, but I will say it’s astringent, perhaps a tad too much so, while being flavorful.
a) First from Grim, pours obscured hazy golden body like a puree with a loose head that resolves into tight persistent cap and lace.
S) White and black pepper, sharp lime and citric rind, lemongrass, grassiness, and wine-like astringence balanced by a lemon syrup.
T) follows all that in the aroma, unique and complex, and unusual citric fruit dimensions always with the peppery, and drying astringency. Some onion and chives. Interesting. Good meditation beer.
F) Peppert, tingly finish. super interesting.

Poured into a snifter. Beautiful beer - very hazy yellow acorn color with a large and fluffy white head. The foam only reluctantly settled leaving a nice covering over the beer. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose: mainly papaya (seriously), tangerine, and pineapple. Not much in terms of malt of earthy aroma. Not surprisingly, juicy and fruity flavors were up front on the first taste. Mixed in were somewhat muted earthy and resiny notes and a nice bready malt backbone. This was bitter like an old school IPA, especially on the finish. Clean and not harsh. A soft feel with moderate carbonation. Overall an outstanding beer - a bit of a hybrid IPA.
