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.

Cheers!

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!
