Racer pours with an awesome amount of light and fluffy head that stays around a long time. No kidding, I got at least 3 fingers of head, with a conservative pour.
Carbonation in this particular brew was very high, in fact a bit too much for me, it interrupted the srinkability slightly.
As far as IPA's go, this one is a cadillac, very smooth, the grassy hop smell hits you when you open the bottle and doesn't dissapoint. However, the hops do bite you late in the palate and they give way to an ultimate finish of malty biscuit.
Definitely a piney IPA finish that is very nicely rounded out for a smooth drinker. Rare case of a very drinkable IPA
This is a very smooth and drinkable IPA, personally a little too soft for my tastes but nonetheless a good brew.
