Appearance - Pours a beautiful clear orange with visible carbonation. An inch head that is off white & looks like a fluffy pillow.

Aroma and taste - A beautiful mixture of citrus fruits (i.e., grapefruit) and floral, slight resin hop flavors.

Mouthfeel - Easy drinking, smooth, perfect amount of bitterness, medium body. Outstanding!

Overall - One word, AWESOME!!

Yeah - I like dat. This one is just straight up a classic. Boom. Waboom. Any kind of boom. It’s just everything a West Coast beer should be. Like, when Raul thinks Victoria’s Secret, he thinks Candice Swanepoel. When Raul thinks the best baseball team to ever play the game, he thinks the Dodgers. When Raul thinks of the best film ever made, you know we are going with “The Grand Illusion” by Renoir. And yeah, you guessed it, when Raul thinks of a classic, West Coast IPA, you damn well know he is thinking White Rajah.

Peace on that.

L: Mostly clear straw gold. As foamy as you pour it. Nice glossy look about it.

S: Sharp citrus with another hop adding pungency. The tangy malt shines through. Strong but balanced.

T: Classic Brew Kettle malts with a hoppy punch to it. Citrus isn't all they used, I'm supposing there's mosaic as well. Possibly simcoe or a dash of amarillo. The hops are sharp and biting, and also pungent.

F: Mostly dry finish with the exception of an oily piney aftertaste.

O: Lots of good hops.

One of my favorite beers, I enjoy the hoppiness and the bitter finish. This IPA has been around for quite some time and has earned its status as one of the best.

12oz can. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of pine, citrus and grapefruit. Sweet toasted caramel taste with a citrusy bite and a bitter kick.

12oz bottled 07/05/19 (17 days ago) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 6.8% ABV 70 IBU. The beer pours bright light honey in color with sticky off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and island leaving behind a generous lace. The aroma is strong with grapefruit, tangerine, orange and light caramel malt. The taste is slight caramel with moderate bitterness throughout and hoppy notes of tropical fruit and dank earth. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, very good to excellent. Really one of the best old school IPAs out there.
