Notes: You will get ZONKED on this beer! Incredibly smooth at 10% abv. We went all out on the hops. Dry hopped at 9lbs/bbl with Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic plus a ton of Galaxy hops.

This is a NETIPA from Grimm. Poured into a 16 oz Snulip glass canned on 4/27/22. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a solid finger sticky white head that leaves some thin streaks of lace with excellent retention. 4.5

Aroma is mandarin, peach, papaya, apricot, and grapefruit rind. 4

Taste follows mandarin, peach, papaya, apricot, and grapefruit big flavor, but rather easy sipping. 4.25

Mouthfeel is above average, soft gentle carbonation, maybe a tad dry, and it goes down rather easy for 10%. 4.25

Overall this is a really nice brew, not dazzling but I would say with a shot. 4

Served in a tulip glass from the can.

Taste: Smooth floral feel with a light lavender tone. Bread feel which has vea y citrus Tones to the brew.

Served from the can in a mason jar.

I don't wanna get hit by a large anvil. Call me revolutionary. Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy amber-orange topped by over a finger of lightly off-cream foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light mandarin orange, mild pineapple juice, light grass, honey, and the vague sense of melon in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, some of the fruit leaning toward the pith-y end of the spectrum, though the bitterness is kept to a surprising minimum. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a very nice TIPA, one that hits the citrus hard without overdoing things.

Can to snifter.

LOOK: lightly hazy, medium yellow color, small off white head, fades to some wispy lacing. good retention.
AROMA: light pineapple and citrus, even lighter hints of earth and grass. Pleasant, but faint.
TASTE: a little stronger flavor, orange, pineapple, light ash,
FEEL: pretty smooth, medium body, light-ish and easy drinking for a triple. 10+ABV is very well hidden. I might almost believe this was a session if I did not know better.

Impressive how sneaky smooth this is. Tasty also, but simple in that category. Another very nice offering from Grimm.

Pours gold with some sediment/chunks floating around. But no matter. Punchy hops on the nose - pineapple, mandarin, resin, dank, tropical, hints of alcohol. Taste is also pineapple. Yes, lots of pineapple. Medium carbonation and goes down like an 8 percenter. Overall, would definitely enjoy again.

A very solid imperial IPA from a brewery that's new to me. "Canned on 3/23/20" date printed on can. Pours a nice hazy lighter pale yellow color with some fluffy white head and very nice looking small soapy rings of lingering lacing. Aromas of ripe fresh grapefruit, pineapple, melon, lemon, tangerine, malt, creamy vanilla, bread, a little floral hops at the finish. Taste follows the nose, great balance, higher ABV is very well hidden. Quite juicy and tasty. Smooth mild mouthfeel, a little soft, just the right amount of carbonation. Will definitely keep an eye out for more offerings from this brewery.

Ok so this beer should be illegal. Never had a 10%er taste like this. Not even Bloomfield Zoo from OH. Amazing.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dense white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of gooseberries and grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of gooseberries, lychees, passionfruit and stone fruit. No bitterness is perceptible, but slight bits of alcohol are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and surprisingly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer drinks more like a Double IPA than a Triple IPA and does a very good job at hiding nearly all of the alcohol from the taste. I liked how it was both fruity and smooth.
