Pours a cloudy, hazy golden amber with a small head that rapidly disappears leaving some nice residual lacing.
Smell is subdued with an overlay of hops and a whiff of malty sweetness.
Taste is initially hops with a nice dry finish and a good balancing sweetness.
Mouthfeel is clean and dry.
Drinkability is fine - several of these is no problem. For a hophead, this is a very nice effort from Bear Republic. Bravo!!

Bear Republic Racer 5
Cool name . . . Really !
Poured into pint glass
A: Nothing special, orange in color. Typical look for an ipa
S: Malty with a hoppy aroma . . . Go figure
T: What this beer lacks in appearance and aroma it makes up for in taste. Oranges and other citrus flavors with a excellent bitter finish
M: Smooth and a good amount of carbination
O: I like this brew alot. It's an easy drinker but still hoppy and bitter enough to make most hopheads happy. Racer 5 is one of those ipa's that got me over the ipa hump so to speak.
Serving type: on-tap
