Rhinegeist Brewery
Ohio, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

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.

orangish hue to this one with some haze. Nice amount of hops and some tropical hints in this beer. Fairly drinkable , but only can drink a couple at a time

Can dated 4/4:
Pours with a slight haze, also slightly orange golden. Head is medium small stacked bubbles, spotty lacing.

Initial nose is citrus rind with a little tart/tang and bitter co-mingling. Lighter than expected. A few hints of malt sweetness on a warner beer almost makes these seem to lean tropical.

A nice, soft and clean feel, no extra warmth in the DIPA. Initial note is grapefruit bitterness balanced with a medium weight maltiness. Next there's a generic citrus pithy note, bringing some bitterness, but really just balancing at this point. Some sips I could see this being a little more tart tropical note, when the bitterness isn't as noticeable. Either way, both fade, but then a specifically grapefruit pithy bitterness rises. Lingering is quite bitter and dry from this.

Another more classic version of a style from Ohio. This one is nice, a bit tame, and leans almost back to what some regular IPAs used to be. There's a light spice note near the transition to the end at times that could possibly a hint of alcohol, but I don't take it as such. Enjoyable for sure, if you enjoy a more classic DIPA, I would guess.

Rich golden color, good carbonation & head. Aroma has some hop resin, dry tropical fruit notes, light pine. Very PNW. Taste has strong balance between bitter & sweet, great elicitation of mango, peach & grapefruit flavors. Finishes with the right amount of bitter hop. Mouthfeel is where it should be.

on draft. color is amber, dark for an ipa which is style i prefer. smell makes you think bitter hops. Taste is bitter to the point of dank. Really good. 7.2 abv is well hidden. First beer I have tried from Rhinegeist but I will be on the lookout for more
