Pours a hazy golden with white head. Pineapple, mango, and clementine on the nose. Getting a lot of raw sugar cane, some lime zest, and a touch of oat. It's soft in feel. This is a really tremendous IPA.

This cloudy yellow can pour hosts a thin, white foam cap and a punchy aroma of tropical fruit.
The flavor is full. Passionfruit, citrus zest and melon are featured.
The finish is dry. Flavors persist.
This is really good.

Canned 01/11/21

Picked up directly from the great folks at Grimm. Pours an opaque light yellow-orange with a half finger of foam. On the nose I’m getting an initial bold lemony citrus and when I let the beer sit a minute I’m getting some dankness and and unripe pineapple. Taste follows the nose - unripe orange and pineapple lead the way. There’s a nice malt after-taste which I find quite enjoyable (depends on the drinker). Mouthfeel is good but not great - it’s soft but not the pillowy soft I expect from NEIPAs these days and Grimm’s other IPAs (Lumen in particular). Overall, an excellent beer and one I’d say beats Lumen on every category except mouthfeel.

A mouthwatering masterpiece of mosaic mayhem. Refreshing and complex.

Was lucky to find this at Mikkeller and continued to indulge and consume frequently over three months during 2019. Amongst the best of class.

Look: It pours hazy yellow with a white head. Head retention is very good.

Aroma: There are dank, resinous, and hemp like aromas. It has a low fruitiness that has melon.

Taste: The flavors has grainy sweetness, resinous elements melon and pineapple. There are very low lemon like elements.

Feel: It has a smooth body with smooth bitterness.

Overall, the aroma was like most NEIPA's, but the flavors were distinctive to make this above most other NEIPA's.

This NEIPA is being brewed again and as delicious as ever! Poured from a 16oz can dated 9/15/19 (two days ago). Great 2 inches of foam that sticks around as thick lacing. Juicy peach and mango from a perfect blend of hops including Mosaic. Smooth dry finish

Tall can....dating info on the bottom but it cant be made out.

Hazed up NEIPA pour, lastinh light khaki cap, and leaving quality low sheeting and great looking fine extensive sheeting.

Oranges and dull mango on the sniff.

Soft and smooth in the mouth, carbonation on point.

Ripe oranges, pineapple on the palate, not overwhelming flavor wise, but the fruit keeps coming and their is a yeasty/nutty quality that add to complexity....this is a way better then decent fruity/hazy IPA, High quality shelfie, well worth a try
