Ohio has some heavy hitters in the world of the IPA: Fat Head's Head Hunter, Columbus' IPA, and The Brew Kettle's White Rajah. Each year when I return for Christmas or summer to visit my family I change my favorite. This past summer the beer that impressed me the most was The Brew Kettle's White Rajah.

Its nose is citrusy, I detect grapefruit. Its malt character helps balance the bittering from the hops, but the finish is extremely dry. White Rajah has a medium body and solid carbonation which help to showcase a perfect amount of hops and sweetness. Speaking of hops it seems like White Rajah has a few hop varieities; it kills it with Citra and Centennial (for sure) and one midwestern variety: Summit (I had to Google this, was not sure at first).

If you live in the area or have access to this beer, then buy it and you will not be disappointed. It is the best suggestion I have come across on BeerAdvocate. Probst!

Refreshing full bodied IPA, big bodied and bold. Dry and bitter upfront and citrus and a touch sour on the finish. Cleveland's finest IPA, although I need to re-visit Head Hunter, which should give it a battle~

poured 12oz bottle into a snifter.

A - pours a hazy dark orange color with 2.5 finger white foamy head. Nice collar and fat rings of lacing coat the glass.

S - Dank floral and citrus hop profile. Hints of pine and breadiness balance out the aroma.

T - A good amount of grapefruit starts it off, with some orange and floral hops. Finishes up with a bready malt and bitter pine. Very nice!

M - Medium body and carbonation with bitterness lingering on the palate.

O - Very nice, mostly grapefruit and bitter IPA that seems to have high IBUs. Thank you Harold for allowing me to try this out.

Got this in a trade from CincyTrigger, thanks for sending it my way. Beautiful looking orange hued IPA with a two finger head. Lots of tropical juicy fruits on nose as aromas of orange, pineapple, and grapefruit shine through. There isn't much for booze or malts, fine by me! That's good stuff. There is some quality grapefruit and pine flavor to be had. Faint malts are hidden in there somewhere. Not overly bitter. Would definitely like to drink this stuff again.
