Outstanding
Notes: Magnetic Cloud is where intense tropical fruit meets intoxicatingly dank hop funk. Galaxy and Motueka from The Southern Hemisphere combine with American Columbus and Mosaic hops to create a powerful force of aromatics —lime, melon, pineapple, raspberry and cannabis.

Canned on 5/8/2020. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It pours hazy, dirty tangerine-honey color with a large, foamy, bright white cap and lots of clinging lacing. The fruity nose features lots of lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, ripe cantaloupe, and just a whiff of vanilla. It's very dank with both melon and pineapple sweetness and tart, dry lemon peel, lime, and grapefruit rind. The use of Motueka hops adds soft, tropical citrus and the Columbus hops add notes of cannabis. The fruit is bright and fresh. This ale is medium-bodied with lively carbonation, and it drinks easily for 8% ABV. Overall, Magnetic Cloud is a highly flavorful and satisfying DIPA; it's the type of offering Grimm has mastered.
