Fairly standard appearance and nose for an IPA like this, gold haze with a pungent aroma. As far as the taste, it's not bad but I don't think the Idaho 7 and Citra meld as well as they could, the pungent notes of the Idaho 7 clash with the fruitiness of the Citra. It's still pretty good, just not as great as many of tho other IPAs Grimm produces.

04/04/2022 date tall can.

Nice looking hazed up NEIPA pour, on the lighter side, both in the haze level and the straw hue. Lasting and firm cap. Leaves some low ringed fine bubble sheeting and well scattered strands and bits of lacing

Pungent melon and ripe pineapple on the sniff.

Super tasty...with more melon, ripe pineapple, mango and general tropical fruit goodness. Complex, subtle, sophisticated and utterly enjoyable. Fine example of the style.

Can. Pours a nice illuminated color but is plenty hazy. Really solid tuft of white fuzz, too. Great look. Smells of new age citrusy and perfumey hops. Could stand to be a bit more intense but the aromas are pretty decent. Flavor is greener than the nose but it's pretty solid overall. I get some kiwi or maybe lychee form several Grimm hoppy beers. It's here as well but the intensity is lacking like the nose. Has a nice, bright clementine flavor on the back end. That and a bit of dried granola malt. Very drinkable; how is this 8%!? Pretty decent but not their best.

Canned 11/16/20, tasted 12/12/20. Very juicy with lots of orange and grapefruit citrus. The look is a little bit of a murky orange, not the most appealing. But the aroma is enticing and lasts for a long time. The mouthfeel is medium/light, not the most interesting but very drinkable. Overall, an excellent fresh-tasting imperial IPA with a nice balance of juicy sweetness and a tart and bitter finish.

Grimm's description is spot on: Grovestand Tropicana orange juice, and Juicy Fruit gum. Citra and Idaho 7, explosion of juicy flavors. Grimm now shipping to Vermont makes my life a lot easier!
