American IPAs are the beers that got me started loving craft brewing. This is a notable example of what happens with a commitment to a style of beer from a great brewery. Thanks Matt for picking this up for me.

Pours a golden orange color with white bubbles that come to the surface right away. The color held up to the light is nearly perfect to me.

Aroma blew my socks off. Such a profound grapefruit/lemon zest aroma. I am not sure how they pack that much aroma into a beer but if I could have that smell around for a bad day you damn well better believe I would!

Taste was also superb. I was amazed how the lemon and orange zest carrier through the entire sitting. We had this with strawberries and blue cheese. If you have never tried this combo with a rockstar IPA, give it a shot. Flavor had hints of alcohol at best.

In my top 5 IPAs ever. What a wonderful brew.

Chilled, poured into IPA glass.
I can find no bottled date on the bottle, but the person I got this from assures me it is less than a month old.

Appearance is a pretty cloudy, not clear. Nice head and lacing, I can clearly track my gulps.
The Smell is beautiful. Before I drank I took several deep whiffs. Wonderful hop aroma.
Taste is really good; the bitterness is a bit more intense than the sweetness, I pick up the bitterness on the finish especially. A lot of citrus notes, resiny, some pine. Very drinkable for sure.

Overall, an outstanding beer that I would seek out again. A light, decently balanced, citrus dominant IPA that would be enjoyable to hop-lovers and balance lovers a like.

Cheers!

First tried White Rajah in a bottle a while ago and was left disappointed; had it on draft last night at J Alexanders and was blown away! Chalk it up as another IPA (Two Hearted and Columbus are others) that needs to be extremely fresh to enjoy. I will make sure to visit Brew Kettle in Cleveland alongside Great Lakes and Fat Heads. With those 3 breweries so close to each other, now I know why LeBron returned!
