Rhinegeist knows how to do it. This is a great example of a high quality Imperial IPA. Hits all the right notes. Not blown away, but still really, really good.

I got a four pack of this from my lical beer store. It poured a clear yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus peel presence. Did have a sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

Got this from a friend and I really wanted to have good feedback for him. Not sure how this is rated so high. Smelled pretty good and the taste started out nicely fruity but the finish was just a disaster and the warmer it got, the worse it got. Really wanted to like this, but drainpoured halfway through.

This drinks with a great fruity hop personality. I get tropical fruit straight away, than watermelon, mango and oranges. Mid palate is a little danker with some pine and herbal notes. It finishes with nectarines and a caramel maltiness.
