super clear, light golden color, fluffy white head,thin lace sticks to the glass.
smells of sweet citrus, tropical fruit.
tastes alot like the smell, perfect amount of carbonation with a dry and crisp finish.
body is on the light side, with a good pop from the carbonation.
extremely easy to drink, and quite pleasurable. if i could get this it would be a go to for me.this one gets an A in my book.

Finally got to score a few of these!
Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice clear gold with two fingers of fizzy white head, nice tangents of lacing.
S - Really nice white grape, dank grassy pine, grapefruit juice, citrus peel, a little hint of peach.
T - The grapefruit is outta bounds on this one, this is a true west coast style, packed with tons of citrus flavor, lots of dank pine, fresh cut grass, light malt base.
M - Very dry and lingering bitterness, but its rather clean on the palate.
O - This was very good, not as good as some people make it out to be though. A True example of a west coast IPA, reminds me very much Green Flash's West Coast. Up front and in your face.

The beer comes in a dark orange amber.

The aroma has sweet tropical and citrus. It has a literal aroma of dried apricot, peaches, and dried mango. Pineapple and oranges follow. A hint of a bready malt.

The flavor follows with a bouquet of fruits in the front. Peaches, papaya, oranges, red grapefruit juice, although not as bold as the aroma. The beer has gentle bready malt that gives the beer some sweetness. The finish is of grapefruit pith and peel and medium bitterness with lots of drying.

A medium minus body on this.

Next to Columbus IPA and Head Hunter, White Rajah won out slightly Head Hunter and then Columbus IPA. A very fruit forward IPA and definitely one of my favorites
