COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true English Indian Pale Ale. Our Raj IPA is created with a medium body and finishes dry and bitter – possibly even more so than your Uncle Sal after you broke his window when you were eleven. Our English IPA has an intense hop flavor and high hop bitterness. The lofty hop level was originally required so the ale would stay preserved and survive the voyage around Africa during the English occupation of India in the 18th century.

Taster. Rating #66. Dark copper with a short lasting white head. Aroma is piney to me. Flavor is very subdued, but very nice british style IPA. (1522)

Draft at Four Peaks, as part of RBWG. Pours clear amber, thin off-white head, fine lacing. Nose is grapefruit, nettles, creme-caramel. Flavours of navel orange, lightly ’juicy’, light spice, pine. Solid mouthfeel. A nice IPA, right down the middle.

Decent, but I like the Hop Knot better than this one.

Sample from draft. Caramel color, caramel aroma. Bland, thin flavor. Scant hops. Unremarkable.

Not the measure of perfection that the Hop Knot is, but Raj has been a Four Peaks Staple for years now. Any IPA lover should give this a try. Dark amber with a medium white head. Pine and Caramel notes with an IPA’s resin aftertase.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap; poured a clear orange amber color. Aroma of citrus, orange, caramel and yeast. Flavor was very earthy and citrus; quite good. Lingers. Very nice.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2010
(on tap at Scottsdale location). Copper liquid with small white head. Aromas of toasted nuts and citrus. Dominant bitterness but nicely balanced by underlying sweetness. Long bitter finish. A good, solid IPA.

JCAZ (4) - Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2010 does not count
Barely any nose, beautful dark golden color of a rich IPA. Fails to deliver on the palette. Seems a tad hot and disjointed. Used to think this good but not so much anymore. Not sure if its my changing tastes or a changed recipe. Either way not my fave anymore at the brew pub.

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2010
Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate resin hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. This beer also met my expectations.

Sammy (8678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
Medium yellow with lots of lace. Some hop aroma. Enjoyed at Scottsdale location, brewed of course at Tempe. The bitterness did not work for me, it was not too drinkable.
