12oz into a tulip.

A: Pours a dark orange with a nice off-white head.

S: Aroma is sticky tangelo, light pine, grapefruit, a bit of pineapple.

T: Taste brings rindish orange, grapefruit zest, a bit of caramel, tangerine.

M: Medium-bodied, creamy.

O: A very good, citrusy IPA. If this was available locally I would buy sixes quite often.

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.

I started drinking this beer after I opened a Dirtwolf. This is a much more superior beer.

A - Golden, light orange hues.
S - Smells sweet with hints of orange and pine.
T - The taste is desirable and subdued. Hoppy, light citrusy pine taste + grapefruit and goodness.
M - Outstanding mouthfeel. The beer expands inside my mouth. It feels good in there. Great.
O - This is a great all around beer. It is worthy.

I would definitely buy this if it was available in my area. I could easily see myself drinking several of these in one sitting. I like it.
