4.32/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

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.

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 +4.6%
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 -4.1%
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!
