Traded for this a while ago and took a while to get around to. The date on the bottom of the can read 1/29/18 but this held up well over the year and a half that I had it sitting in my basement. While not among Grimm's better offerings, this was a decent example of an American Imperial IPA that didn't feel strong and went down easily. I've just become so accustomed to expecting more from these guys that this was a bit of a letdown for me...

The pour to this was like honey, but much thinner and with some fine haze in the liquid. Plenty of head topped this off but there wasn't much lacing to be seen aside from the few thin rings along the top of my pint glass. Quite a dank and outdoorsy aroma to this beer as there was lots of pine, forest, weed, chocolate and as the taste followed suit. This felt like something from Humboldt out of California as it was a hemp-lovers paradise. Full of hemp, resin, and hop oils, the slickness of this was reminiscent of tangerine juice as the bright and pithy citrus mouthfeel emerged once this fully warmed up.The malt was full of cracker and full, which allowed the fruit flavors to fully shine, in all of their deep and pithy goodness.

There was enough booze here but with such a heavy-handed presence going on, that was hard to directly discern. The carbonation could have been a bit more energetic but in the end, this was a change from Grimm's usual fare while being as enjoyable as what I was accustomed to from them. Love West Coast IPA's? Then you'll need to seek this one out!

[From Notes | Consumed 2/25/18]


Hazy gold with a sparse, wispy white head. Dank, spicy green hop aromas…weed, pine, and grapefruit. More of a classic, dank West Coast IPA in the flavor: cannabis, leafy herbs, apricot, orange juice, and pineapple. Crisp, medium-light , refreshing feel. Really good.

Tall can....1/29/18....6 weeks in the can

Pours out with a medium haze, and leaves quality looking gauzy froth and a load of fine sheeting.

Oranges and herbal hops on the sniff.

Tropical, pungent, over quality shelfie...go get some

This one pours a clear light orange, with a small foamy head, and lots of lacing. There's a good amount of floaties, like most Grimm beers, despite the mostly clear color.

This smells like orange candy, melon, grapefruit peel, and sweet biscuity malt.

This tastes just a tad boozy, which is disappointing, but the hop flavor is nice. There's a lot of grassy and weedy bitterness, with grapefruit peel and orange rind, and a little bit of candied orange. It's not the best Grimm IPA yet, but I'm still enjoying it.

This is light bodied, crisp and fairly clean, with a slight lingering (boozy) bitterness.

This was enjoyable, but not quite the usual banger from Grimm.

A very enjoyable and unique dipa offering from Grimm. Despite the name this is no lactose fruitfest but a well rounded beer straddling old and new styles. Retains a crispness of feel and nimble body while offering moderate malt and boozy notes in service of the hops. Definite fruits to be found there but also some welcome bitterness and subtle grassiness. Kind of unexpected and while not my absolute favorite by this brewery a really welcome and intriguing change of pace.
