Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is of pine hops and caramel malts. Flavor is stronger of the malts but does have a slightly bitter finish from the pine hops.

Can from Julios. Pours out a cloudy light golden color. Particles in suspension. Spicy-herbal-citrus aromas and flavors. Light honey sweetness. Spicy bitterness. Hints of tea. Decent and tasty but a bit too muddled.

Can into a pint glass. Lots of hops up front. Definitely not bad, just not as good as most of the Rhinegeist beers Ive had.

On tap in a pint glass. Pours amber/golden with a white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A standard pale with nothing really interesting but nothing bad either.

Can from Discount. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Light weed, dank tropical note. Touch of catpiss. Clean, crisp and light. Light bitterness. There is a certain sameness to a lot of Rhinegeist pale ales, but I like it. Always refreshing and with good dry-hopping...they remind me of Y. Market in Japan.

This was my first time trying anything by Rhinegeist Brewery out of Cincinnati. Ive heard good things about them and I hope they are much better that what this hoppy pale ale had to offer. Not that theres 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. Its 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, youre 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 (2856) - 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!!

Pint at Rusty Bucket Hilliard on 2/13/16. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, citrus and pine. Malty flavor with tropical fruit and citrus before a tropical fruit finish.

Shot (496) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2016
On tap at Koble Westerville. Reddish gold with a thin, clumpy head. Aromas of malt. No discernable hop aroma. Flavors are caramel, toffee, bready tones and earthy hops. Somewhat resiny mouthfeel. Pretty nice.
