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.

Poured from a 32 oz growler into a standard pint glass. Growler was filled on 5/31/14, and filled very well. Reviewed 24 hours after fill. Appears a clear golden color, with touches of orange throughout. Has an off-white head, that leaves minimal lacing.
Nose is full of tropical fruits, with mango and pineapple sticking out, as well as a good citrus presence, with grapefruit and orange notes. There's a touch of caramel sweetness in the aroma as well. The taste follows this, with the topical fruits and citrus coming through up front, followed by a touch of the malt sweetness, which is then quickly overtaken by the citrus in the finish, with a lasting bitterness, that goes down nicely.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with average carbonation levels. Finish is right where it should be, not too dry, and makes it easy to drink. Overall, this is another great IPA coming out of Ohio. The tropical fruits and citrus are the stars here, and it is very enjoyable.

Despite the overly clean and almost filtered coppery hue the head had a powerful, stiff thickness.
The nose is strong and assertive with tons of fruity citrus. Grapefruit leads the way with tangerines, nectarines, oranges and a sugary mango sweetness. The malt is lightly caramel but the aroma is powerfully fruity.
The flavor is assertive as well but the herbal hop tones are more prominent on the tongue. Touches of cannabis, tea leaf and whole cone give way to tangerines, lemons and grapefruit.
The feel is light but smooth with some considerable warmth in the chest.
Kudos to Rhinegiest on a very well done ale.
