This one goes down really easy. Nice malt up front followed by some really refreshing fresh cut grass and finishes with mild citrus. I really enjoyed this beer from rhinegeist. Want to try more.

Not bad, but not great. It is one of the many hoppy beers by Rhinegeist.

Agree with @WesMantooth on this one . . . This and Truth are so far the best in the Rhinegeist line up. Nice tropical aroma and flavors along with a strong yet subtle malt presence that won't burn your taste buds up with bitterness yet still toes the line of ipa territory . . . Almost. Mouthfeel is slightly thin but not a detractor. Overall a very good new pale ale.

Another nice beer by the Elm Street brewers...not their best..but even their "misses" are an enjoyable libation.

12oz can poured into a tulip, canned 17/7/15

A- pours a bright clear golden color with a two-finger foamy and bubbly white head that has good retention

S- citrusy hop with some grassy notes, balanced by bready malt

T- light citrus peel & fresh grass up front, hints of tropical notes, caramel malt sweetness, clean finish

M- medium body with medium bubbly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish

O- middle of the road pale ale with good drinkability

I really like the complex malt of tea leaves, caramel, barley, grains and bran flakes. The hop flavor is not my favorite as it starts with lemon, a plus, but then tends towards an oniony chive and a light bitter pine. It drinks with very little bitterness or astringent.

Let me start by saying that this brewery has probably been my most frequent purchased brewery in the past 6 months. They hit the head on every style they attempt. Just so damn solid. Now on to the beer.

Beautiful and frothy in the glass with two fingers of rocky straw colored head from a vigorous pour. Retention is average and turns to swiss cheese as it fades. Paint strokes of lace are left all along the top of the glass. Body is a deep amber orange tone usually reserved for bigger IPA but this is very attractive. Nose is big and fragrant with tons of citrus hops and floral hop notes as well. There is a bit of a raw grainy malt smell that teams with the hops. As I take first sip you are greeted by a nice overall dryness. Hops are more on the mineral and dry side but it creates a really nice flavor profile that isn't harshly bitter but has a lovely dry character to the palate. Mouthfeel is very crisp and lively. This is a solid pale.

American PA brewed with Amarillo, Mosaic, and Cascade hops. Poured from a growler into a Boulevard tulip. Nice light-coppery amber color, crystal clear, and two fingers of rocky white head that is fairly well sustained. Faint citrusy notes of lemon and grapefruit on the nose.

Medium-light body with a moderately firm feel and a nice bitter flavor. Light crackery grain notes up front are well-complemented by American hops. Mosaic makes for a good pale ale and the dry citrus notes make the beer quite drinkable and enjoyable. The hops fad a bit on the back of the palate and the finish is slightly metallic, but the beer is still thoroughly drinkable.

Overall, a very enjoyable pale ale, but nothing truly memorable. The mosaic hops show well in this beer and it's well-crafted. Wonderful choice to accompany you during the NFL playoffs.
