Tetraplex is the amped up Tesseract! At 10% abv, this triple IPA is deceptively easy drinking with even more hops and flavor than Tesseract. It’s bio-hopped and double dry-hopped with mosaic cryo and is exploding with flavors of pineapple, mango, gummy peach rings, mandarin oranges, and melon.

Super enjoyable offering from Grimm. Aroma is super tropical, guava, passionfruit, fermenting fruit. Taste falls right in line with a good mouthfeel and the right amount of carbonation.

A: The beer is very hazy and a bit pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly settled down and left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pineapple are present in the nose along with notes of mango.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional hints of orange citrus. Little to no bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found that this beer drinks quite easily for a Triple IPA, since it nearly masks all traces of alcohol from the taste.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: This pours a lush deep-orange color that is not perfectly-turbid, but also isn't clear by any means. Sudsy foam cap that builds up to a few fingers before settling to a thin quarter-finger cap. Excellent legs and nice, tiered lace. Thumbs up on the pour.

Scent: The Mosaic hops pop at first here, with some dank blueberry mixing with mango and clementine. Citra and Falconers' trade blows right afterwards, mingling grassiness with some solid citrus focus. Overall, though, this doesn't jump from my glass as much as I figured it would. Good but not great.

Taste: Gotta say this is Mosaic heavy on the palate as well, with intense deep dankness just coating the palate. Strong berry qualities ranging from currants to blueberries like I found in the nose, and a moderate maltiness in the mid-palate that flows decently into a lazy citrus finish. Not as convincing in the follow-through as I would prefer. I like my triple IPAs weighty and bruising, and this is a little floaty and modest.

Mouthfeel: As implied above, this is really pillowy and lacks any strong bite, which is a shame because I look for that general element in my TIPAs of choice. As it stands, this just drinks pretty boringly and doesn't inspire me to get any more of it. In that sense, I guess I'm happy it was only one can but... man. Disappointing.

16 ounce can into IPA glass, canned on 3/1/2021. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden amber/light orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas and flavors of big red grapefruit, mandarin orange juice, peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, melon, blueberry, citrus peel/rind, wood, pepper, pine, wheat, white bread, light toast, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; balanced creamy/bready malt, sticky hops, and some resins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing resin dryness after the finish, with no lingering astringency. Not overly heavy for the ABV, minimal residual sweetness from lingering resins. Mildly increasing warmth of 10% after the finish. Fantastic Mosaic profile, with added Falconers flight and Citra according to the can. Great soft feel for the style and ABV. Very juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank hops; with a nice balancing oat/malt backbone. Mosaic is one of my top favorite hops, so this nailed all flavor expectations. One of the smoothest 10% beers I've had for sure.

-cloudy yellow-orange can pour with a sticky cap of fine foam and an light aroma of grapefruit and tangerine.
The flavor includes a balance of grain and hop influences. Malt sweetness and citrus hop flavors with some pine notes.
The mouthfeel is smooth. The higher ABV is well hidden. -very good
