4.25/5 rDev -0.2%
A - Bronze/orange pour with a thick foamy white head. Head settles to about a 1 inch thick head/ring.
S - Huge pine/earthy aroma mixed with sweet caramel/bready malts.
T - Follows the nose, as expected. Huge hop bite. Finishes with a slight astringency. Caramel malts balance out the piney hops, just perfectly.
M - Bubbly, chewy, and finishes very bitter.
D - Glad this one comes in a six pack. Very complex and full bodied, but still extremely drinkable.

Red Racer IPA is slowly becoming noticed among beer geeks in both Canada and the US, and for good reason. I was lucky enough to try this growing giant at the source itself in Surrey, BC. On to the beer:
It's orange in color, and there are some strings of lacing sticking around in the glass. There's a healthy amount of fresh pine in the aroma which excites the beer drinker for what's next.
Red Racer IPA is filled with hops. clean, crisp hops! It's only a little bitter, which is nice. Floral notes exists too. The malt is crackery/biscuity. It's also a little sweet, which the best I can describe is like fruit infused hops with a sprinkle of sugar. It's very smooth in the mouth, and is a pleasure to drink.
Red Racer IPA lives up to the hype. A delicious beer that any any hophead would be a fool to turn down. The crazy thing is this wasn't the best IPA I tasted at Central City Brewing during my visit; you'll need to read my Double IPA review from that same brewery.
