Racer 5 poured a beautifull golden auburn color. A large, lasting white head stayed with the brew till the end, leaving lace that wouldn't go away on it's own.
The aroma was hoppy with a slight bit of citrusy sweetness behind.
This IPA starts out hoppy with well balanced malty notes behind. A fruity presence (citrusy yet pear like), appears mid bottle folowed by hop bitterness and a stronger hop bitterness at the end..
This beer goes down smooth and is carbonated nicely.
Racer 5 is a great IPA. It is well balanced and very drinkable. I have to say that Bear Republic is quickly becoming one of my favorite craft brewers.

3.88/5 rDev -7.6%

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
