In this beer blog, we are going to get into a brew from The Brew Kettle Brewery. This is the first time that this craft brewery is being featured on this beer blog. The beer is White Rajak India Pale Ale. This Ohio base craft brewery was founded in 1995 under the name of Ringneck Brewing. They later changed their name to Brew Kettle. They have distribution throughout Ohio and Kentucky. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The smell has a heavy grapefruit notes. The taste has a heavy grapefruit notes with a dry bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

In the end, I have been looking for a great Ohio beer outside of Great Lakes Brewery from Ohio base craft brewery. I was happy to find this great IPA from Ohio. I also love Hoppin Frog Brewery. I believe Brew Kettle might be my favorite Ohio Brewery. I will need to try some of their other beers asides this IPA. I only had this brew. This is by far the best everyday Ohio made IPA. I love it. I am really impressed. There is a nice well-built malty backbone and they picked the right mix of hops. This is a really good IPA and being a hophead. I cannot wait to get more of this brew on my next trip to Ohio next month. I will be looking for their Fall Seasonal when I am down there. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
