BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rhinegeist Brewery
Ohio, United States | website

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite. Our truth is found in the scintillating brilliance of hops. Brewed with a nod to the pacific, hops sizzle with tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish.

Aroma: Soft melon and tropical fruit character up front. Light honey blossom notes. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with golden edges. A lot off-white head retains well. Appears still in the glass.

Flavor: More melon and grapefruit character. Flavor is supported by firm and earthy hop bitterness. Balance is to the hop bitterness. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste lingers with powdery hop resins.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and medium-high carbonation. No astringency, oiliness, or heat detected.

Overall impression: An easy drinking well crafted American IPA. I'm not sure it stands above the crowd given the options we have here in Central OH. Worth a try.

32oz Boston round growler from the brewery.

Pale brassy hue, great clarity with a good enough froth to keep things going. Big citrus, sweet piney nose with hints of dried grass, tobacco, melon rind and pineapple. Mild smoothness, a tad creamy, chewy medium body. Aggressive resin hop character, citric and piney with an ample bitterness. Mild biscuity malt backbone, spicy, hint of yeast, clean, and bread crust in the finish.

A solid American IPA, without a doubt on the bold side. Very clean and drinkable. A real treat here.
