This was good. Had it on draft (snifter - style), and everything was looking up. Gorgeous look and nice clean aromas... took a little funny turn on the taste, with the funny wet cardboard note going on... otherwise everything was in place. Prefer White Rajah when it comes to OH IPAs!

Tap at the BORIS Van Wink Release. Pour is very hazed deep amber with an off white head. Nose is huge citrus blast, orange peel and hints of grapefruit with a small touch of doughy malt underneath. Taste follows suit on hops, huge hop explosion. Tons if juicy orange citrus with some grapefruit notes and bitterness. Notes of dough malt and some cereal grains. Lighter body with nice carbonation and a pillowy feel. Bitterness lingers through the finish.
