I’m fortunate that Grimm is not only a great brewery but my spouse loves their brew and ambience.Today I’m drinking Grimm’s Hyperfocus Eukanot a double IPA 8%.It’s an interesting and refreshing change from the other haze IIPAs I have been tasting. This is not ashamed to be grainy and astringent. Its nose is exactly like sticking your nose is a freshly opened bag of hops. This tastes like water grains and hops.

Lucky taste buds! I'd like see if it's all its raved about.... Sneezles61
There is a lot of hype about the beer. I kept that in mind when I took my first sip. I live in the greater Seattle area and we have A LOT of IPAs around, gotta say it is... Outstanding, easily the best west coast style IPA I've ever had.
It is 9:00am here, but this is quality control you know. Kegged the strawberry blonde this morning using @sneezles61 force carb method. Good strawberry aroma and flavor. 12# of strawberries for a week after 2 weeks of primary. Used the hop spider to filter for the siphon.
I see quality control was successful! Sneezles61
12 lbs of strawberries??!!
I thought the same thing. 12lbs sounds like a lot!
Great idea on the hop spider!
Yep, 12#. First time adding fruit and I wasn't sure how much. I bought 16# but only used 12. It has the tart, almost mild sour flavor of strawberries that don't have sugar on them. Good reviews so far. If I did it again, I would use less. Maybe 8#.
How much grain did you use? Your in fruit wine territory

It was brew day today. I’m hot after spending a few hours in the garage with temps above 100F. Had to have a beer to cool off.
I brewed this back in March. I wasn’t fond of it then, but after a few months it tastes great.
What's your grist bill for the IPA?
A little time improves most beers.
