Pours from the can an opaque muddy orange, minimal 1" head that fizzles out, no lacing. Nose is peach and stone fruit up front, followed by deep notes of pine, musk, and rubber. Flavor is balanced, with some rich canned fruit evened out by piney dankness; finish is on the dry side, moderate bitterness. Thick mouthfeel and light carbonation. Flavor is deep and it feels a little heavy, so surprised by the moderate alcohol.

Canned 9/01/20. This is self-labbeled as APA, if this ends up as NEIPA I'll be disappointed

Pours a light fizzy head with med-lower retention, a little lacing, hazy lemon-yellow color

Nose starts like lighter NEIPA, some citrus, generic tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, tangerine, little grapefruit, very light malt

Taste is again NEIPA but lighter, lots of juicy fruit, tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, papaya, a little grapefruit and plenty of citrus again, quite pithy, soft creamy base malt and flaked proteins, little softening minerals, low bitterness, drier finish with a bit more bitterness but not much, soft finish with a touch of mineral and chalk late as well

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bod, plenty of creamy carb, soft

Overall as I was worried about, it's just a light NEIPA, water softening minerals and chalk all with it, hops bring no bitterness and all citrus and tropical fruit, pretty much no malt except some flaked proteins (wheat or oats), so that would be fine if I was expecting an NEIPA (session version), but I was expecting APA which this is nothing like.

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.

Very impressive. Another delicious hop bomb from Grimm and sessionable to boot. Now if we could just get the price point down a bit...
