Fresh growler. Still don't particularly care for this. Somewhat vegetal taste and heavy fuzzy mouthfeel.

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.
