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.

Pours dark yellow with white head that dissipates quickly, and leaves some lacing. Smell is fruity (mango, pineapple) with some citrus, sweet, and earthy notes. Taste starts earthy, with the fruit and sweet notes coming through, followed by pine, and a strong hop finish. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, but sticks around for a good while. The mouthfeel is mostly smooth, the finish is somewhat harsh without being overly bitter. Good carbonation, and nice balance in flavor. A solid IPA with a higher ABV, not super sessionable, unless its paired with food, because much of the complexity is lost halfway through the beer, and my tastebuds needed to be reset in order to enjoy this one to the fullest.

A clear light gold color. Modest white head with good retention. Some lace.
Faint aroma of tropical fruit and citrus.
Taste improved on the aroma. Mango, grapefruit. Late pine.
Not great, but not bad.

Truth brewed by Rhinegeist Brewery, with an ABV of 7.20% This American IPA pours out a deep amber color with a nice thick white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. Really digging the color of this brew. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, earthy grains and malts. Truth has the look and smell of most American IPA'S on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. There is a lot going on in Truth, so far. Between the look and smell this is one inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold with hop bitterness, and earthy grains and malts. The body of Truth is a nice solid medium to heavy, but not to heavy. There is nothing overpowering about this American IPA, it has a super nice balance to it. It is really hard to pick up on the 7.20% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. This brew would go nice with a dinner. The month feel is Hoppy, Bold, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Truth a 4.50 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Rhinegeist Brewery, did a real nice job with this American IPA.
