4.39/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Look: Pours a hazy, deep golden yellow with a two finger, soapy white head of satin white foam. Great head retention and lacing.

Aroma: Spicy apricot skins / peaches and cream. Very light bitter lemon note.

Taste: Fruity upfront. Peach preserves and pineapple puree. Bitter, warming sensation of pine resin and grapefruit + lemon skins. Goes sweet on the finish with notes of coconut cream, orange marmalade and honey. Maybe even a little bit of lemon meringue pie.

Feel: Full bodied, very heavy with slightly above average carbonation. Soft and fluffy.

Overall: Really exceptional stuff. My can is dated 10/11/21 (a little over four months ago as per the time of writing this review) but being a triple IPA the flavors held up exceptionally well here and maybe even developed a little bit of extra complexity over time.

Served in a Teku glass from the can.

Appearance: completely opaque light gold color coming off with a white head rising have a fingers length off the glass.

Smell: deep floral aroma which smells like pine trees and spruce mixed with a dose of grapefruit juice you know the yellow kind.

Taste: very complex coming off a bitter yet lightly lightly sweet citrus feel which sticks to your palate but it's not quite bitter as you think. Malty as it gets though.

Mouth: sticky body with a soft carbonation and they're very deep complex red feel messed with lemon skin to the finish.

Overall: Worth the grab if you like IIPAs, mellow lemon skin undertone mixed with grapefruit. Salud!

Canned on: 10-11-21

A - Opaque pale medium orange color with thin soapy white lacing.

S - Grapefruit, citrus, spicy citrus rind, pineapple, spicy peach, and overall fruity and earthy.

T - Grapefruit, peppery grapefruit rind, spicy peach, pineapple, and spicy pineapple rind.

M - Thick and full bodied with light pricklies on the tongue and leaves a thick coating in the mouth that feels like a layer of cottony fabric. Dry on the palate and some alcohol effervesence with some warming.

O - The ABV is actually pretty well hidden in this beer.

Great brew - Dank and piney but also super Juicy. Boozy but dangerously crushable. Kind of a clear coloring / light yellow color. nice light foam head to the brew. Drinks like champagne beer.

A: Opaque yellow-gold in color, not turbid but absolutely no light coming through. Nice dense white fluffy head on top. Good lacing.

S: Not getting tooo much but I do get faint melon or pineapple.

T: Very impressive how that 10% alcohol is completely hidden. Ripe pineapple, melon, lemon, hay, peach, and honey.

M/F: Surprisingly lighter than expected. Drinks like a 7 or 8 percenter. Very smooth. Finishes with ripe fruits and hops.

O: Great beer! The most impressive part, to me, was how well-hidden the alcohol was -- very very smooth drinking. This is better than Afterimage in my opinion, which is the only other Grimm beer I've had. Yet this one is rated lower.. weird. Anyway, this is a wonderful beer and worth the buy. It doesn't trump some other triple NE IPAs off the top of my head, but it does stand out in the crowd.

Another really good DIPA from these guys. Tons of bright tropical fruits, mango, peach, very hoppy but easy to drink and not bitter at all. Highly recommended.

Can from City Swiggers on the UES NYC.
Pours a nice opaque pale gold with excellent lacing, the smell billows out of the can and the glass on the pour with intense tropical fruit nectar, damp orange juice concentrate or like the bottom of homemade frozen orange juice pops, where all the sugary goodness accumulates, taste follows the nose with overripe melon and papaya, hints of mango and stone fruit, and sugary orange juice, almost no bitterness, just a hint of pith, this beer if full bodied and creamy. It’s like drinking a pillowy cloud of tropical orange deliciousness, a conucopia of yum.

Wow for a 10% ABV this beer has a super thin body that is also very easy to drink. Not as thick as expected however, is very juicy which makes up for the thin body. Good brew!

I am a nut for Grimm IPAs. My dual tap kegerator has seen nothing but sixtels of Grimm double IPAs for a very long time. At first it was difficult to find their kegs here in upstate NY, but their distribution seems to have been extended and I have a very good arrangement with a local beer store. I pretty much get what I want...Grimm! This is my first Grimm triple.

On tap, it’s cloudy gold color like a glass of pineapple juice with a 1 finger foamy off white head that faded slowly and left nice foamy rings. Super tropical smelling, this was chock full of orange peel, mango, tangerine, grapefruit, sweet malt or biscuit, graham cracker, faint toffee, floral accents and then more citrus like an Orangina soda.

Tastes completely hides the booze and is a good mix of tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, mild piney notes and then balance from graham cracker, toasted grains, caramel and very mild brown sugar. Aftertaste is like grapefruit pith, but it’s nice and fades dry for a clean finish.

Incredibly smooth for a 10% ABV brew with a nice average level of bitterness, some thickness to the body but still that soft flow that went down effortlessly. A classic Grimm DIPA, very enjoyable.

Poured from a growler filled at the brewery.

Pours a hazy bright gold color with 2 fingers of bright white head. The head leaves random splotches of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of pineapples, followed by a melange of citrus; orange, grapefruit, tangerines, and clementines. Has a dank, earthy note on the back end.

The taste follows the nose with citrus and pineapple and absolute danksauce on the finish.

The feel is just about perfect for the style. Medium-full bodied with soft carbonation. Creamy, pillowy soft, with a dry finish. The alcohol is barely present.

Overall, a fantastic DIPA that is bursting with flavor and is so easy to drink despite the high ABV. Outstanding.

Canned 10/15/18, consumed 12/1/18

Poured hazy, cloudy gold with a nice head that left good lacing. Terrific tropical & citrus fruity aroma and taste.

The feel on this is outstanding. Wow no way to tell this is a triple, and there is basically no bitterness at all.

Overall an outstanding hazy, my first Grimm and I'm ready for a whole lot more.
