This was my first time trying anything by Rhinegeist Brewery out of Cincinnati. I’ve heard good things about them and I hope they are much better that what this hoppy pale ale had to offer. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I can think of many other beers in this style that are much better balanced and layered. It pours a nice orange-yellowish hue with a moderate amount of lacing that lingers for some time. The pour leaves behind a very nice lacing that sticks beautifully to the glass when I swirl it around. The initial aroma is all citrusy and grassy hops with an odd follow up of dried up, stale tangerine peel. There are a lot of citrus notes going on here. The taste follows the nose pretty faithfully with tons of citrusy hops and a high level of bitterness. I find myself enjoying this more with every sip. It is definitely reminiscent of nice crisp weather by the lake or on a boat. This is a relaxing beer. The kind of beer you want to sit back and enjoy every sip. It’s not overly complex as a whole, but just enough to savor it as the temperature settles on it. Towards the end you will get very faint, blink-and-you-miss-it light malt but barely enough to speak of. Overall, you’re not going to find yourself writing home about Pure Fury, but it is definitely an enjoyable beer for warmer weather. This is the type of libation I want to drink on the lake, with a campfire, with some sausage and good friends. https://agrainoftruthblog.wordpress.co

sloth (2814) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Small white head with decent retention and stringy lace. Lightly hazy, copper colored brew. Mild nose, citrus and pine. Med/light bodied, somewhat effervescent, touch oily. Overly sweet malts, for me anyways, with butterscotch notes, tired piney notes. Lightly sweet finish, no balancing bite. Cans from thebaldwizard, Thanks Joe!!

Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Clear deep orange/light amber color. One finger of frothy off-white head that falls quickly and leaves irregular wisps of lacing. 3.0 S: Herbal and grapefruit hops with citrus undertones. Caramel maltiness with a touch of bready yeastiness. 3.0 T: Light bitterness. Herbal hops with citrus undertones. Caramel malts bready yeast. Pretty much the nose. 3.25 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A bit chewy as well. 3.25 D: Not bad, but nothing special. Their other beers are generally much better. ★ 569 characters DavoleBomb, Jan 23, 2015

Pours a slightly cloudy golden with an off-white head. Citrusy and piney nose. Reminiscent of Pliny. Astringent mouthfeel. Much less expressive flavor than the nose indicates.
