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.

I'm a very experienced IPA connoisseur, and this is hands down one of the best IPA's, I've had to date. Pours a beautiful dark amber color with a lacey white head. Smells of a wonderful piney scent, with hints of an extravaganza of tropical fruits like grapefruit, papaya, mango, tangerine, lemon and kiwi. Taste of tropical tart citrus with some tasty caramel malts for a smooth clean finish. Rhinegeist has just the perfect amount of bitter meets spice, and has a dry feel with excellent carbonation. Everything about this beer is amazing.

Easy to drink, but hits you hard if you guzzle them down quickly. Hell you might even see a ghost if you drink too much. lol This IPA truly speak volumes, and even lives up to it's ghostly name, because it will literally bring you back from beyond the grave after a long stressful week of work, and into great spirits. Treat yourself nicely to this one, relax by the bonfire, or gather around the living room for a night of video games and movies with your friends, or during a day of horseshoes and lake fishing. I give Rhinegeist Truth, a 5 out of 5 stars, and will also be looking to try Rhinegeist Saber-tooth Tiger very soon. This will be my new got to beer, probably for years to come.

Simply the best IPA I have ever tasted. Smooth yet bitter. Nice floral grapefruit scent with a light citrus finish and plenty of hoppiness.

Very good example of an IPA. Ranks right up there with Sixpoint Breweries Resin and Hi-Res
