4.4/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.

4.54/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

4.16/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

16oz. can into Night Shift stemware.

Is it just me or is this even cloudier than usual? Completely opaque. Not a great look. Nose is clementine, cantaloupe, starfruit and pineapple. Aromatic but pretty typical. Beer opens with hints of pineapple, starfruit, citrus and cane sugar. Boozy at moments. Bitingly tropical if that makes sense. Super juicy at the end and bursting with clementine, starfruit and more pineapple notes. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Soft and fluffy on the palate. This is the best part of this beer. Goes down bone dry with a lingering, sticky finish. At the ABV, shockingly drinkable.

A real nice beer though I'd have enjoyed this more at a lower ABV. Still, great, clean flavor and a perfect example of the style.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a teku glass via draft at Grimm Ales

Color is a cloudy yellow, with decent white foam, no lacing
Smell is grapefruit and passionfruit
Taste is bitter citrus up front, smooth on the backend, no presence of the high ABV, and no maltiness
Another home run from GRIMM, first TIPAive had from them and they produced an amazing beer!
