Tesseract Double IPA by Grimm Artisanal Ales
Brewery: Grimm Artisanal Ales
Beer Style: Double IPA
Beer God’s Notes
Original Tasting Notes: super tasty. Gorgeous color.
This was really tasty, I’ve apparently had it before but I didn’t remember it (I had it on draft in a sampler before I knew much about Grimm). Having it a second time really made me pay attention to this beer. I got a lot of intense flavors of pine (which is nice with all of the juicy citrus IPAs going around lately).
I haven’t had a Grimm IPA or DIPA that I haven’t liked, and this definitely doesn’t break that streak.
STYLE: Double IPA
This luminous hazy-golden beauty is bursting with layers of super fresh, hoppy complexity: aromas of berry, tropical fruit, and citrus are married to undertones of resinous, dank spruce. Inspired more by Vermont IPA’s than the typical west coast style, the bitterness is firm yet soft around the edges, and the mouthfeel is creamy and luscious. Brewed with Mosaic, Falconer’s Flight, and Citra hops.
