4.35/5 rDev +3.3%
A: A dark copper, borderline gold with a slight white head comprised of big soapy bubbles.
S: Fresh mango pulp! this is followed but cascades of pineapple, sweet caramel and tons of grapefruit. Dried fruit comes to mind while enjoying this aroma with a nice tart citrus.
T: Very floral opening to this brew. Freshly squeezed lemon and grapefruit are mixed with bits of grass and mandarin orange. Pineapple makes an appearance with a juicy pine finish. And my oh my does it finish long.
M: Medium bodied with not much in the way of carbonation although you can feel the bubbles on your tongue. long juicy finish.
O: Very impressed. wonderful. juicy yet balanced. a beautiful beer that i cant wait to have again. /93

poured out of 32 oz growler into stemless glass
a: absolutely beautiful deep burnt orange/amber with small off white head that lingers for a bit. crystal clear. one of the most attractive looking beers i've ever laid eyes on.
s: bursting with tropical fruit and citrus aromas, not overly bitter. i want to dive right in.
t: just as the aroma indicates, tons of tropical fruit, oranges/tangerines, excellent balance between bitter and sweet
m: very smooth, almost creamy, mouthfeel. not overly carbonated, but that may be due to several days storage in the growler - and i'm fine with that.
o: loved it. STT was right up there with the best i've had of the style. i would drink this any day of the week. keep up the great work gentlemen!

Appearance: Served on tap with a copper color and a medium head that left some splotchy lacing. Looks good, but the head wasn't too impressive.
Smell: Amazing. Think White Rajah smell with a little bit more peach in there. Tropical fruits all the way, and a lot of them.
Taste: Unlike White Rajah, the taste is just as good as the smell. There's mango, peach, orange, and other tropical fruits (they say papaya, but I really don't know what that tastes like). A touch of malt balance, I suppose, but this is a great tropical hop bomb. Not much pine here.
Mouthfeel: Pretty typical DIPA, I would have liked more carbonation and it's a touch thick, but it goes down well, probably just because it tastes so great.
Overall: One of the best if not the best DIPAs I've had. If you're looking for tropical fruit flavors in a IPA/DIPA, there's no way you can be disappointed. This makes even the Rhineguist Truth IPA seem more unremarkable.

Upon reading the previous review, a different beer immediately came to mind (Wicked Weed's Freak DIPA). I grabbed the wife and headed down to the brewery. I was not disappointed in the least.
Appearance: Arrived in front of me in a goblet. The beer itself was a gorgeous coppery amber with a creamy finger of white foam on top.
Smell: Prepare to be punched in the senses with bundles of papayas, grapefruit, and tangerines. Even after the first taste, it was still even more enjoyable to shove my sniffer into the glass and experience that aroma all over again.
Taste: The scent prepares you for that first taste. At first, you get the fruit but as the taste rolls over your tongue you experience a slight bitterness. It is this coy bitter sensation, indicative of many of the style, that both drew me away from it and pulled me back in.
Mouthfeel: It "bounced" in my mouth. The flavor was so intense that I wanted nothing more than to have STT touching every part of my mouth. It was smooth and yet provided a little spark with each sip.
Overall: An outstanding offering, not only from Rhinegeist but for DIPAs in general. I am doing everything I can to procure more of this.
