A proud brew out of my home state!

Pours a slightly burnt copper, clear, with a big sudsy head.

Lots of amarillo hops,with tropical fruit, and resiny sweetness, mild malt notes as well.

Wow. This is tasty. Tropical fruit, sweet fruits, citrus, lightly bitter middle, and a crisp fresh finish.

Medium bodied with a nice, slightly prickly carbonation.

This is tasty! Proud to be from Ohio because of this one. A must try for any IPA fan!

I started drinking this beer after I opened a Dirtwolf. This is a much more superior beer.

A - Descent, normal appearance. Golden, light orange hues.
S - Smells sweet with hints of orange and pine.
T - The taste is desirable and subdued.
M - Outstanding mouthfeel. The beer expands inside my mouth. It feels good in there. Great.
O - This is a great all around beer. It is worthy.

I would definitely buy this if it was available in my area. I could easily see myself drinking several of these in one sitting. I like it.

Drank from a 12 fl. ozs bottle acquired in a trade with mps
Served in a pint glass

The beer poured a crystal clear, medium amber color. Shockingly transparent. The liquid was topped by a creamy, three-finger tall, bone white, sea foam crown. Thick, drippy rings of lacing coated the glass.

The aroma was really interesting. Floral hops dominated. Strong honey-like notes. Hints of lavender were noticeable. Sweet, perfumey and fragrant. Candied citrus peel cames through as the beer warmed. Some apricot notes appeared as well. There was a subtle, biscuity malt presence. Overall, very unique.

Although a bit more straightforward, the flavor profile was also excellent. Quite hoppy. The hops were well matched by a biscuit and caramel malt backbone that privided just enough sweetness. Loads of candied orange peel and juicy tangerine notes. Quite peachy. Mango was also detectible. Grapefruit came through on the back end and carried into the moderately dry and bitter finish. Hints of pine were noticeable as well.

The mouthfeel was medium-full bodied. Creamy, smooth and slick on the palate. The liquid contained a super fine, moderate effervescence. Pillowy soft and near perfect for the style.

White Rajah is an amazingly flavorful yet extraordinarily well balanced double IPA. I really wish that I had easier access to this beer.

Bottle purchased at Kafe Kerouac in Columbus, OH and drank there.

Pours a clear dark yellow/gold, with a one inch head, and great lacing down the glass.

Smells like citrus zest- some orange, peach, and grapefruit, with some underlying pine.

The taste is incredible. Quite bitter, but pleasantly so. Very fruity hops- orange, apricot, peach, grapefruit, that taste like they are covered in honey and caramel, due to the very light malt backbone. Some dank, earthy pine flavors as well. Finishes long and bitter and dry. No alcohol present.

Medium bodied, starts a little sweet, but not much, then finishes very dry. Crisp mouthfeel, good carbonation.

A classic IPA, one of the best.

Grabbed a six pack of this for a beer tasting party.

Pop the top and pour a golden clear beer. Lots of citrus aroma and decent head retention. Nice lacing and medium mouthfeel. Bitterness creeps up on you and finishes with just a hint of sweetness. Tasty all around.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Clear golden hue with a nice tight finger high head of white. Average retention and attractive curtains of lacing.

This is tropical and juicy, big tropical and bright floral character reigned by passionfruit, pineapple and mango. Backing of pink citrus and a breezy pine. Sweetness from the malt is candi sugar, light and lightly crystalizing on the hops. I could smell this all day.

Clean bready malt, simple syrup sweetness making way for the hops. Tropical flavor doesn't carry into into the flavor, rather an even balanced trifecta of west coast hop profile awaits with citrus, grass and pine. Through the drink the pine and grassy tones begin to dominate before a lemony zip enters in the finish. Aftertaste is a bright and drying pine.

Medium, easy drinking body, carbonation is calm but adequate allowing the flavors to shine. Alcohol is barely felt and it dries very well.

One of the best IPAs I have had of late. The tropical juicy aroma is captivating, hop flavors are satisfying and the mouthfeel is silky and it releases from the palate perfectly. I need more of these asap.
