12oz bottle, courtesy of pest (thanks Andy!), into a 7venth Sun snifter.
A - Pours a beautiful, clear golden color, with a finger or two of off-white head. Good retention, excellent lacing.
S - A little on the sweet side - light notes of caramel, pine sap, and cotton candy, with some mango and grapefruit in there toward the end.
T - Not too bitter at first, tropical fruits and sweet malt. Very bitter toward the end though, and more on the piney side for me. Long dry finish.
M - Thick, full bodied, and creamy. Great carbonation.
O - The reviews had me expecting maybe a bit more, but all in all it's a nice entry in a field crowded with major players. I'd probably seek out some more if it were available in the area, but not sure I'd go trading for it.

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.

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!
