4.14/5 rDev -1.2%
Bomber poured into a Sam Adams glass
Clear, golden amber with a steady stream of bubbles. Two finger white foam cap settles to a frothy, half finger lid with great lacings. Looks great.
Aroma of citrus with a hint of floral.
Slight , crisp bitterness on the tip of the tongue quickly leads to a full mouth of hoppy flavor at the middle of the tongue. Smooth hoppy finish.
Suds up well in your mouth, smooth finish.
Very good beer and available all over my area. Don't remember the price, but, it was relatively inexpensive.

3.75/5 rDev -10.5%
A: Lightly cold hazy (my friend’s that was not as cold was almost transparent), golden yellow with greenish tinge—light foamy head leaves faint ring throughout drink 3/3
S: Grassy and citrusy, but not all that strong 9/12
T: Citrusy middle rounded out with floral notes, with alcoholic tinge throughout, finish is a grapefruity hang 15/20
F: Astringent throughout, light carbonation 4/5
Overall: Perhaps Racer 5 was aggressive when it was first brewed 15-some-years-ago, but this is now a quite pleasant and subdued alternative to the hop-assaults on the market today 7/10
Total = 38/50
