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.

A - Hazy, golden-yellow with shades of copper. Huge, pillowy, foamy head that settles into small piles of thick foam. Very sticky lace. With a quick swirl, the head shoots back up into a few inches of fluffy bubbles. Good head retention. One if the finest looks for a beer I've ever seen.
S - Very piney with hints of mango as well as grapefruit and other citrus. Everything an IPA should smell like.
T - Tons of delicious fruit up front. Refreshing. Mango comes to mind as does grapefruit. All finished with pine and cedar flavors. Perfect bitterness and the right amount of complementary malt in the finish to keep the hops as the star.
M - Extremely enjoyable to drink. Not overly bitter with the right amount of dryness and carbonation. Actually, thirst quenching.
A fantastic West Coast IPA!

4.2/5 rDev -1.4%
A- Pours a cloudy and hazy golden yellowish-orange with a 2-finger white head that last a little while. Nice sticky lace.
S- Lemon and orange zest up front, grapefruit, pineapple, and maybe some mango.
T- Lemon and orange zest again, more grapefruit and pineapple.
MF- Medium body on this one. Lighter on the carbonation then it originally looked.
