2.8/5  rDev -34.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

12oz bottle poured into a goblet

A: Light golden copper; clear; 1-finger head that stuck around for a few minutes and left some light lacing

S: Lots of sweet tropical fruit

T: Very sweet initially, then makes a rough and sudden transition to being very bitter; the aftertaste --or something underneath the initial fruity sweetness -- is moldy, rusty and metallic

M: Texture is fine, but leaves a very unpleasant bitterness on the tongue

O: This one just doesn't do it for me. Something about the sweetness and bitterness is out of whack, at least the way I taste it. And the aftertaste makes me shudder. I'm obviously in the minority on this one, but I've had the same negative reaction each time I've tried White Rajah.

A - pours copper without much of a head on it

S - nose is tons of cheddar (?!?) and some fruity notes

T - follows the nose. Musty-like cheddarness with some caramel malts. Weird, but not terrible.

< - medium body with some wateriness

D - decent IPA. Bit and bold, but with tons of weird cheese flavors of which I wasn't a huge fan.

Thanks Steasy66. 12 oz bottle split between two people.

Clear golden colored, perhaps a little too clear. Medium head and retention. Aroma belongs to the spicy side of hops, venturing well into the onion-garlic territory. An instant turn off for me. Tastes bitter and spicy, again in the Allium genus.

Light, dry and crisp. Overall it's not a bad beer but it's not too good either.

Thanks to Kurmaraja for this one. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy yellow-gold color with about 1/2 inch of white head that had medium retention and light lacing.

The aroma was very pine hop forward, with some light floral notes and no real malt presence. The taste was the same, mostly pine hops, with some floral notes and a very slight citrus aftertaste.

The body was thinner than I like in the style, but is fairly typical for "American" IPA's. Drinkability was good, again typical, about what one expects from an IPA. Overall, a nice, solid brew. Not really worth seeking out, but probably worth a shot if you see it.
