On tap at Beltway Brewing (contract brewer from Grimm). Served in a stemmed tulip.

A nice low 5.5% ABV American Pale Ale that is full of flavor. Not a cloudy mess.

Pours a hazy medium orange with an inch and a half fluffy white head that is very well retained and left lots of rings of lacing. Smells of pine, tropical and citrus fruit. Tastes of grapefruit, orange, peach, mango, pine, malts and a hint of pith. Moderately bitter, medium bodied, lightly carbonated, finishes on the dry side.

Had it on tap at Dive Bar, NYC.
Capslock pours a hazy orange color with a moderate foamy head that retains throughout. The aroma and taste are aligned in terms of the emphasis on citrus, light pine and pale malts.
In the mouth it is smooth, medium bodied yet light drinking. Nice citrus, grapefruit and orange finish. Soft malt texture with a light pine prickle and gentle carbonation.
Another well crafted brew by Grimm. A hoppy, flavorful and easy to drink pale ale.

A: poured from the half growler into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy apricot with a 1.5-finger white head that retains well.

S: Nice tropical fruit and apricot. Citrusy grapefruit too.

T: Modest pale malt lays the foundation for citrusy and tropical fruity hops. Very nicely balanced, yet clearly a bitter, hop-centric brew. Taste of citrus primarily, with both grapefruit and lemons in the mix. Finishes with a good bitterness.

M: Active but fine carbonation ups the overall impression with this beer - though that may be my inclination these days because I've been drinking a lot of juicy NE-style IPAs. It's nice to feel that "bite" again.

O: This is excellent. Bright, fresh and with a nice bite to it.

@ Ridgewood

Served up an evenly hazy pale orange color with a whipped frothy white head. Aromas of dank herbal hops, subtle tropical fruit, and peppery citrus. Zesty citrus and mango hops, though less fruity than expected. Pine resin bitterness and peppery herbal dankness - that certain leafy/hop pellet quality that I love. Medium bodied and decently bitter. Tasty!

A: hazed orange juice white powdery top

S: aromas of passionfruit, peach juice , bittered grapefruit and orange rinds

T: strong pale ale tripical fruit flavors of peach juice, passionfruit, guava , mango and a hint a pale malt. Obviously dry hopped and fruited overweight but delicious and very drinkable.

M: medium bodied for a pale ale, light on carbonation out of a 32 oz growler bought today.

O: overall very happy for my first Grimm experience. Definitely recommend trying

Had on tap at out of a Tulip. Beer comes in a light gold/straw yellow with a full haze and bright white head. Aroma is very citrus forward with lots of orange and grapefruit. A little passion fruit on the back end. Flavor follows the nose with a medium pithy bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side but still impressive for 5.5%. Overall I am really enjoying this beer from Grimm. Shows they can make pale ales as good as their IPA's. 92 points

On tap at Joe Bean Coffee Bar in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a very hazy golden yellow- it looks like sunshine. There's a one inch head, and lots of lacing.

There's a lot of super fresh hop flavor here, candied lemon, grapefruit, and mango, with a burst of zesty pine as well.

The hop flavor on this one is pretty great. There's a great lemony hop flavor, not very tart, but more candied and sweet, with mango, and grapefruit rind, with a really cool zesty and sparkling bitterness on the finish. There's not really any malt character here.

This is light bodied, and incredibly crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

I could imagine this one going over much better in the summer. It's light bodied but very full in flavor.
