4.35/5 rDev +0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Presentation: Very cool and eye-catching label with great colors and font. Label gives ABV and IBU info, a small description of the beer, a bit of info and small description on the brewery, Label states “Taming the Savage Hop”. Really cool cap.
Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz bottle into a 16oz English pint led to a 2½ golden white head of a light airy density atop a clear golden yellow IPA. Head retention was a solid 2min 50sec before fading to a thin coating and ring with OK lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of pineapple, mango, sweet grapefruit,orange, and other tropical fruits along with a citrus hop bite. Also has a slight resin aroma with a nice malt backbone.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is much more piney and resin based than the nose with the tropical fruits dominate on the front end. Mid point has a more citrus hop flavor along with a nice malt presence before turning again to a piney resin hop finish and aftertaste.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: An above average amount of carbonation leads up to a more full medium body. Very smooth and drinkable.
Overall/Comments: White Rajah is an exceptional IPA that can hold its own with most any west coast IPA available today. Very well balanced. Highly recommended!! Classified as an American IPA @ 6.8% ABV. Consumed 6/9/2013.

4.25/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Golden orange color. Half a finger of head on the pour and present on the edges of the glass while drinking. Heavy sticky lacing left behind at each level. Average amount of active carbonation.
Smell: Tame tropical fruits mix well with some medium bodied pine bitterness and a light caramel body on the front. Citrus picks up more on the body and continues to showcase a very breathable tropical fruit body. Pine grows more toward the back end and rides this brew out.
Taste: Citrus and tropical fruits jump the palate. Grapefruit and pine are potent on the body. The malt brings a very crisp flavor which really allows the bright hop tones to showcase themselves. Lingering bitterness on the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Crisp. Carbonation is very well done and works well with the malt and hop tones.
Overall: Another outstanding midwest, west coast style IPA. Citrus and fruit forward with a solid malt backbone which really allows the hop to shine. Highly recommend this one.
