Big thanks to seeswo for yet another outstanding brew

Live review.

A beautifully clear and actively sparkling golden, topped by a finger's offwhite head that joins into a rim of crazy lace. Beer porn, man.

Med. strength aroma, but a heavenly perfume it is! Lemon, orange peel, mango, and sweet grapefruit, neutral sweet, a hint of honey, and floral notes of fine fragrance, my gosh, but it draws me like the scent of a woman, and sends my tastebuds to priapus.

Ah, now that's what I'm tlaking about, American Breewing 2011! We've arrived, man; American brewers using American hops and malt, and American craftsmanship, and American brewing genius to make Universal works of drinkable art. Exhibit A, White Rajah, starts with a zip of sweet lemon, lemon zest, orange zing, grapefruit zig, and just a hint of piny zag. It tingles and tickles the tongue through a sip that is one of those that just keeps giving, and finally crests with a breaking wave of clean bitter hop and just the right amount of sweet still in it, all the other flavors still aswirl on palate. My but this is delicious!

It's the mouthfeel, here, the center stage for a wonderful cast of flavor, which enables this beer. It's low/med. carb, very viscous and coating, easy drinking to a fault, and a finish that is the template for this style IMHO. What is crazy is it has so much resin, which can be cloying or leave a bad aftertaste in unbalanced abundance like this, but here just leaves clean wonderful flavor to linger.

My impression of this beer is if given enough of this, and sufficient time to do it, I am certain I could consume a volume equal to the amount of hydrogen in the Sun, and still be wanting more. Get this if you see it, my next step will be to mail seeswo and beg to trade for more.
