BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rhinegeist Brewery
Ohio, United States
rhinegeist.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Picked up a 6pk while visiting town. Average at best. Overly malty finish, no sense of any fruit. Serviceable but nothing more.

Appearance: Arrives clear and honey colored with a pillow of a head that leaves clumps of lacing behind

Smell: Grapefruit, orange and mango, with undertones of biscuit and caramel

Taste: The biscuit and caramel tones provide the backbone for the tropical and citrusy hops to emerge; mango, upfront, with grapefruit and orange, in the middle; the finish leans toward the hops with some sweetness to balance things out

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice IPA from the folks Over the Rhine

I am only occasionally in the mood for an IPA, and this one is local for me so it is easily available here in my area in Cans and on Tap. I usually have it on tap while out with friends. It has a perfect golden color , a rich thick head, and one of the stronger aromas you will come across. It is pretty bitter ( 60 I think ) but it not overwhelming for the style. Definitely a grassy , strong herbal odor for me. Pretty high on the alcohol content too so it is not one I would wash down pizza with, but maybe that is your thing. It is a good beer when your just going to have one or two.

Give me a dose of the TRUTH! Truth is my go-to IPA. Mostly transparent light amber color. Hoppy, grassy aroma. Fruity and hoppy taste with a hint of grass and earth. Good mouthfeel. Overall it's just a good beer that is consistent and delicious.
