Grimm Tetraplex

Brewery: Grimm Artisanal Ales
Country: USA
ABV: 10%
Style: American Triple IPA
Other Notes: Hops – Citra, Falconer’s Flight and Mosaic

Brewer Description: (from website) 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.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 21st January 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, mango, tea, mandarin, citrus rind, orange peel, grass and maybe a touch of pine.
Taste: Bittersweet, peach, melon, pineapple, underripe mango, orange rind, slight onion and booze.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a huge Triple IPA fan, but this was one of the better ones I’ve tried. Perhaps on the borderline of being too sweet for me, the balanced bitterness brought it back in line with my palate. Definitely worth a try.
