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.
