Year of New Beer: Space Vibes, Rhinegeist Brewery (Cincinnati)
Written By: Dion on 07/26/2020
Going old school, West Coast style on this one, and it's evident from the jump. Nose is loaded with grapefruit and a fairly prominent pine note. Warmth brings a touch of honey malt and increasing chive/onion undertones. Pretty juicy on the tongue, but the grapefruit does get a little pithy as the bitterness ramps up. Pretty solid malt backing, with the green, herbal chive note lingering in the background. Good brew, but as is the case with many Rhinegeist IPAs, not sure I could really differentiate it from many others in their lineup.
