White Rajah has a medium, white head, a semi-opaque, orange-gold appearance, some bubbles, and not so heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of very citrus-type hop oil and white bread, and the flavor is of the same, with citrus rind and pith. It is not too bitter or sugary. Mouthfeel is medium, and White Rajah finishes mostly dry and mild.

Good copper color, nice head, laces the glass. Not as bitter as I like but great flavor, smooth. One of the better non west coast ipas I have tried so far.

Pours a semi-clear bronze color with a a white head of about three quarters of an inch.
The smell is of grapefruit, papaya with some caramel notes.
There is a grapefruit burst up front that runs through the mouth with the carbonation ending with a nice bitterness. The bitterness is slowly tempers during the after taste. Nice body with a soft, wet mouthfeel.

Picked up a from Jungle Jim's in Fairfield. Pours an orange gold with a light head that lingers. Aroma is slightly dank and piney in the best way. Taste...wow. Such a crisp IPA. No trace of misplaced alcohol, sticky resin that coats your palette or too heavy bitterness. So damn drinkable. The malt injects a nice level of sweetness but doesn't try to balance the profile - there's no need to pull the flavor out of the hoppy sweet spot. The clean, crisp taste is what sets it apart; how this beer finishes fairly dry like a saison is beyond me. Outstanding beer.
