Well...wow.

This is certainly unfiltered, as the pour shows. Light pale yellow, cloudy, huge head.

Major hop aroma, but actually a light-ish aroma.

Taste? Hops. Hops. HOPS!!!! I almost puckered on my first sip. But it finishes clean and dry, with a long, lingering aftertaste. Then you want to drink more of it. Dang tasty!

Overall? Awesome. Can't tell if it's a double Belgian-style IPA? (I only say that because of the color and appearance...otherwise no hint of Belgian yeast). Methinks they realized Racer 5 set the bar for an unfiltered IPA and tried to match or exceed it. I say we keep the wars going, because this is pretty great...

Yes, I got this beer, on tap at the brewery, on tap in Hershey, and in bottle. I liked all of it. And yes, I still want more.
