A- Tallboy into becher with a murky golden body and a thick white cap. The creamy-frothy head shoots to about an inch high and displays good retention. few rings of lace with plenty of spottiness in between.

S- Fruity but somewhat faint. That being said a nice juicy hint of peaches and mangos off the top with a hint of sweetness and some breadiness. Not pungent but what is there is pleasant stone fruits.

T- Pretty much follows up on the nose with a major addition of the citrus fruits at this point. Grapefruit, tangerine and orange join the stonefruits in the form of mango, peach and apricot for a solid hop profile. Drier than expected at this point as the citrus oil bitterness cuts into the nectar feel of the stone fruits found in the aroma.

MF- Light-medium bodied thickness with a medium level of carbonation. Silky on the palate with a nice smoothness and a fairly bitter ending.

A very pleasant stone fruit and tropical aroma leads into a more varied flavor with citrus joining the equation.

Pours very hazy with color on the amber side of orange. One finger bone-white head that leaves little lacing at all.

The nose is fairly light with sweet citrus notes, maybe a bit of bready malt in the background.

The taste is surprisingly refreshing with sweet citrus bursting out from the start and sticking around. A little malt kicks in mid way through but the hop flavor keeps it down. Near the finish there is a slight alcohol burn coming through - something that gets a little more noticeable as it warms up, but it hardly defined this beer.

Feel is soft and a little creamy. Bitterness is moderate at most, coming through in the finish.

This is a pretty impressive beer, feeling light and citrusy yet packing a wallop at 9% and hiding it well. The creamy soft feel rounds it out nicely and gives a little substance over the delicate flavor.

4 pack of 16oz cans from cheese traders in south burlington.

Poured into a Pint glass. Appearance is a deep yellow amber with a semi thick cloudyness. Not as hazy looking as the standard NEIPA but still a nice looking beer. A thin one finger head followed by thick sticky lacing. Smells like sweet pepper, citrus and cut grass.

Taste is were this beer starts earning your love. Very sticky resinous citrus, bright hops bite that fads after a few sips. Considering it's 8% abv it's very easy to drink and its flavor remains prevalent.

Feel is thicker then it's appearance would have you to assume. Good sticky texture without an over whemling bite.

Overall this is good beer from a great brewery that I will buy again. I would rather see Grand Royal become year round from Zero Gravity but it sounds and seems like this may be the choosen one for a year round IIPA from ZG.

Stumbled across this at a local deli and was drawn in by the great can art. "Never judge a book by its cover" this is true but after seeing that it was 0Gravity, I had to try it. Nice citra(s) forward, lacking on smell though. Decent mouth feel, overall drinkAbility high. I can see myself on a mountain top screaming to the gods in ancient languages while enjoying this brew. Mid price range so overall worth the buy.

(also call me crazy but did they kinda do a ripoff of Patagonia's logo?)

Canned 10/16/17

Pours a gigantic 2+ finger head that fades at a slower pace, fluffy creamy head, some sticky lacing, slight hazy honey orange color, tiny floaties

Nose a bit of an aged IPA unfortunately, some lemony citrus, lemon pledge, zest, generic citrus, a bit floral and earthy, some earthy pine as well, mild cereal grainy malt.

Taste a bit sweet, big candy malts and cereal grains, also big herbal tea, earthy pine and a bit of spices, generic citrus again some lemon pledge and zest, marmalade, a bit spicy late, a touch of warming alcohol late as well, briny notes, and drier, fair bitterness especially on the finish

Mouth is med bod, nice carb, just a touch of alcohol

Overall eh, not bad, nothing too special, alcohol hidden nicely and drier finish.
