On tap near brewery in Phoenix, AZ. Four Peaks Raj IPA is sparkling clear amber in color, with a moderate white head and lacing.

Mildly hoppy Citrus nose with bready malt.more like a pale ale.
Barely Pale Ale bitterness.

Medium body with medium+ carbonation. Rather crisp and lively, every for an IPA.

O: Very drinkable, lightly hopped IPA.

Type: Draft
Glass: Pint glass
From: Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $5.00 (guessing)
Purchased: May 16, 2013
Consumed: May 16, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured a reddish, honey amber color with 1-2 fingers of white head when I got it. Good lacing on the sides and good retention all the way down.

Smelled a weird mix of hops and malts. Resin, grass and herb hops, honey, caramel and roasty malts.

Taste wasn’t anything to be desired. Roasty caramel malts, grass and resin hops and maybe even a bit of rye. Long lasting bitterness on the tongue after.

Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.

I wasn’t too much of a fan of this one. The hop/malt balance didn’t quite work.
