3.6/5 rDev -15.5%
12oz can poured into a mason jar
Pours a beautiful orange color with a huge off-white cap. Slow to recede, leaving huge chunks of lace all over the glass. The aroma is balance. Earthy, pine and spruce, and some grapefruit rind over top a strong bed of light caramel malt. The flavor profile matches the nose. Earth, pine, and spruce up front, light caramel malt through the middle and some grapefruit and pine in the finish. Medium body with a mild lingering bitterness of pine, spruce, and grapefruit rind.
If your looking for a balanced ipa with some good bitterness, this is your guy. I wouldn't exactly call this world class.

3.5/5 rDev -17.8%
A: pours a golden orange with an ample fluffy white head. this one started to make a break for the outside of the container as soon as I cracked it open(maybe infected?) hazy as hell as well
S: Very floral with a bit of pine and spicy character to it. A faint hint of caramel attempts to make its presence known
T: taste is bittersweet floral hops with a tinge of bisciut, a tinge of grapefruit with a resinous oily aftertaste with some grapefruit rind. the taste and aftertaste is a bit funky at points and tastes a bit off
M: slightly prickly carbonation, slick and a bit syrupy
O: Very flavorful, there's a bit of funk with this one so I'm a bit concerned it might be infected but that won't stop me from drinking it.

A phenomenal IPA from top to bottom, Red Racer IPA pours a hazy gold with a nice foamy head. It knocks you over with citrus hoppiness, and every sip is filled with ruby red grapefruit juice and a faint hint of spruce. There is an excellent balance between sweet and bitter, and despite the massive numbers of hops clearly used in this beer, there is never a puckering bitterness.
Very drinkable, I could drink this beer all night.
Thank you to HuskyinPDX for the trade.
