The Rhinegeist IPA is the flagship of this new brewery. It is by far their best beer and I would consider it to be the best IPA of Cincinnati. It is light in color, but full in flavor. It has a delicious fortaste as the beer hits your mouth and leaves a delicious aftertaste as well. The brewery is located in Over the Rhine near Findlay Market. Everyone should visit this establishment to soak up the atmosphere.

Got my Growler filled at Jungle Jim's.
Poured a golden ruby color with a light head, this is the only flaw to the beer! A light head and carbination. Lacing dripps slowly down the glass.
Smell - Friggen Hoptastic! I hope hoptasic is a new word. So it is a slightly sweet smelling citrus hop. Some pine notes. You smell it with every sip!!
Taste, just plain wonderful. Tounge gets overwhelmed with a hop bombardment very good! Doesn't taste too overpowering on the hops. Hops don't leave that bitter Linger, finishes dry and extremly smooth.
Mouthfeel- full and rich, light carbination.
Overall- This is one of the best IPA's I have tasted! I may have said that before but this is a very high ranking brew. I think it ranks above Fat Head, 90 minute and those are dang good ipas. I really wanted to give this a 5 overall because it is that good but with my experience in ratings I have learned there are many fine beers out there but this ranks #1 inmy American IPA catagory.

On tap, July 6 at Rhinegeist.
The pour was golden/copper with nice white head.
The smell makes me think Citra hops, as a bit of cat piss comes to mind. Those notes are combined with a bit of pine resin and bitter citrus essential oil notes.
The taste is the money on this beer. Again, I think Citra comes through. Great malt backbone for a very balanced hop profile of bitter citrus oils, light pine resin and light tropical fruit. There is great restraint in this beer. That hop flavor was still with me 15 minutes after leaving the tasting room, and it was still very pleasant.
The mouthfeel was spot on. Perfect carbonation and body for an IPA.
Overall, this IPA drinks with the best of them. I will be returning to Rhinegeist many times for this beer alone.
