BEER REVIEW – [Grimm] Magnetic Tape

Woah There Tasty Pineapple Notes!

Well, i’m not going to lie – I felt PRETTY cool snagging one of these Grimm Magnetic Tape cans.  Well, actually Bearman snagged it for me technically, but ya know, he felt bad for me and let me have it.  Grimm is one of the hottest breweries in the game right now, so as a super enthusiastic beer hipster, I was over the moon to be able to try one of these.

Here’s what Grimm Artisanal Ales has to say about this beer:

“Magnetic Tape is the cousin of the beloved Magnetic Compass. Both are oat single IPA’s pairing Mosaic with an interesting hop from New Zealand. Where Compass uses Rakau hops, Tape uses Motueka. This beer is all about big, fresh, radiant tropical fruit character from these two matchless hop varietals. There are no rough edges, just full and round aromas of melon, mango, and citrus. High drinkability quotient.”

Man, hops are some crazy shit.  This beer reeks of delicious pineapple notes, yet there’s no pineapple in it!  It’s pretty crazy how deliciously pungent the aroma of this brew really is, I could smell it from a foot away – I mean, that’s serious.  My first Grimm experience was a total delicious success and I’m looking forward to my next run in!

Until next time, watch the video above and let me know what you think about Grimm in the comments!
