Nice to be in Ohio so that I can great get the White Rajah and Hop Ju Ju. A very nice IPA with nice bitterness and citrus flavors. A little rougher than the Hop Ju Ju but I like bitter and aggressive. This is that. Have only had in a bottle so hard to see the color but nice aroma. Will pick up another 6 pack when I see it again in the store.

I was nervous that the "white" in the title was going to be another typical Belgian style IPA.....NO....this beer is very very good. It poured a copper clear with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had nice orange peel spice. The taste reflected the scent but had touches of pine as well. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall....yeah its that good...definitely worth a taste.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a goblet. Very light Amber. Light aroma. Pale head with minimal lacing. Big piney hops up front. No bitter aftertaste. Very thin mouthfeel. Decent IPA but less than what others think, IMHO!

Love this beer. It is very hoppy without being overly bitter. The best description I can offer of it is the flavor is citrusy. It has hints of grapefruit without coming across as a flavored beer like a shandy. For the IPA lover in the Cleveland area it is a legend.

Pretty damn tasty. Mangos and peaches stand out as fruity flavors on top of the other medium-bitter hoppy flavors. Even-flavored, medium bodied, with a nice lasting head, this is generally a good, slightly fruit-forward IPA that is dry without being too bitter or sweet.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazed apricot color with a small white head and lacing that stays thru-out, smells of tropical and pine hops with sweet malts, taste follows the nose citrus and tropical hops are followed with a bitter pine hop, mouth feel was dry and some what bitter on the finish, liked this IPA ,did not like the dry / bitter finish, smell > taste , but overall a very nice brew
