16oz can purchased from the fridge as a 4-pack for $15.99. No canned on date, but from Instagram this was released on 8/31/21 so that means that this is 1 1/2 months old.

Look: Pours a moderately hazy orange color with a two-finger rocky off-white head. The head dissipated to a very thin ring pretty quickly. No lacing.

Smell: Lots of peach gummy rings and mango on the nose, as well as some sharp, green notes on the finish. The nose finishes a bit pungent and herbal with lots of pine needles. Also notes of ripe berries, Concord grape juice, and orange juice.

Taste: This is a bit different from what I was expecting based on the nose. It's actually a lot sweeter than I expected and in a good way. It finishes with only moderate bitterness and it's very drinkable. The finish is a bit spicy / peppery, citrusy / pithy, and is fairly crisp with a snappy bitterness that does not linger very long. There is a touch of tanginess on the finish also, which is very nice. This beer keeps me coming back for more and it is very drinkable for an 8% DIPA.

Feel: The mouthfeel is nice - it's relatively soft and the beer is appropriately carbonated.

Overall: This is my third Grimm beer. It's not my favorite of what I have tried so far, but definitely a well-made beer and it was easy to drink (gone within a few minutes). This may be my first exposure to Comet hops, and I have not enjoyed Strata or El Dorado hops that much in the past. That being said, I still like this beer so they are definitely doing something right to make me like a beer with hops that I am not the biggest fan of. It's definitely an interesting beer and it's impressive how this beer can be both sweet and dry.

From Instagram
For Funsies! Our newest DIPA is named in homage to a piece of intra-Grimm esoterica coined by our Director of Fermentations, whose silver tongue has wielded inordinate influence over our staff lexicon. For the first time, we're using Comet, a novel and FUN hop for the team at Grimm. Paired with Strata & El Dorado, we're getting saturated notes of ripe berry, white peach, candied grapefruit, and Welch's grape juice. This beer is top speed with a full spectrum flavor experience—sweet! yet bitter! full bodied! yet a touch dry!—coating the entire palette. Double the IPA, double the fun.™️

Undated can. Released 8/31/21 per Instagram.

L: Pours a hazy dark gold with a fine head that quickly dissipates to a film on top, but sticks thicker on the side of the glass. The lacing is thin, irregular, and pretty.

S: Muted aromas of grapefruit, white wine, and flowers.

T: Berries up front, followed by the grapefruit. Finishes very dry and slightly bitter. No hint of alcohol.

F: Low carb, medium mouthfeel.

O: Extremely easy drinkability, but the flavors don't quite pop in a wow kind of way. There's a lot to like here, but not a lot to love.
