1/17/2014: Rhinegeist Pure Fury Pale Ale... Citrus and floral, but not over the top; great hop blend that is grassy and slightly herbal with some citrus zest and just the right amount of bitterness for the style; the toasty maltiness is a good supporting character and doesn’t overstep its bounds; delicious and balanced! Draft (pint) at Rhinegeist in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rating #6 for this beer.

Draft in a sampler at the brewery. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head. The aroma has citrus fruits, florals, pale malts, herbs, and a little bit of pepper and oil. Flavor of citrusy, herbal, oily, floral, grassy hops, balanced by pale malts. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean mouthfeel with just a bit of bitterness. Yet another very good, hop-forward, sessionable, tasty, refreshing pale ale from these guys. Keep it up.

Draft to taster at Rhinegeist. Looks solid; a transparent deeper gold with white lacing. Smells solid too; nice and hoppy with a mild pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, light mouthfeel. A good example of the style, and very sessionable.

Pint on tap at Dutch’s. Clear red orange color. Topaz, as my sister brilliantly describes it. Thin white head. Not much lace sticks. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Very session able and easy drinking. Great tropical citrusy hop aroma. Very nice lightly grassy dry hop. Moderate bitter light sweet. Very tasty satisfyingly hoppy smoother pale ale. One of my new favorites from rhinegeist.
