A staple in my fridge, about time I review it.
A - Pours a golden caramel with a consistent white head.
S - A hop tribute. Citric hops, with a little piney to it too.
T - Perfect. Lot's of west coast hopiness with out a lot of body and maltiness to it. This is what an American IPA should be.
M - Light bodied, good carbonation.
D - As I said before, this is a staple to me. If some how I could only be stuck drinking one beer fort he rest of my life (perish the thought) this would be it. I love Racer 5. I had a solid appreciation for beer for many years, but this is the beer that turned me into a geek. Thank you Bear Republic.

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
