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

A: The beer is rather hazy (nearly cloudy) yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high head that gradually died down, leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of mangos, lemon and pine are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has "juicy" flavors of mangos of lemons along with notes of pine and hints of spicy hops towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a little crispness on the mouthfeel.
O: This beer has a very interesting mix of aromas and flavors from the hop varieties. No traces of alcohol are detectable.

Serving type: can

I found this to be a very mediocre beer, but solid from Grimm. Better than the average can or beer that you find around the city, but doesn't stand out to me.

Nice orange-amber color, pillowy white head that dissipates to a minuscule film and a good bit of lacing.

Aroma is fruity, but also slight notes of dank/cat litter. I did just get a cat this week, so my nose may have that stuck in it. Nope, warmth revealed more of it. Not displeasing, though.

Nicely balanced between bitter and fruity. Papaya, mango, generic beery, passion fruit, pineapple, peach, apricot. The bitterness does a great job differentiating the beer, keeping it from being a NEIPA but with similar fruit notes.

Soft, smooth, medium body. Nicely carbonated.

Gotta say, wasn't very impressed with the one can I got at release, but drinking in on tap right now and it is fantastic.
