From notes on 11/05/11:
Bottled: 10/06/11; Poured in a pint glass.
A - Very light amber color and pretty clear; 1-1/2" off-white billowy head with some lacing around the glass; Lots of floating sediment in there
S - Nice aroma with plenty of hops; Smells of grapefruit, pine, and floral hops; Not getting any malts at the nose
T - A little bitterness up front with a nice flavor of grapefruit and pine; Mellow grapefruit aftertaste with subtle sweet malts
M - Medium bodied; Some carbonation; Very light, dry finish
O - This beer has a fantastic drinkability quality. It's nice and smooth, making it really hard for me to stop at just one. This IPA definitely ranks pretty high on my list and is certainly a go-to IPA for me. I have had Racer 5 many times and will continue to do so, though I am excited to try some of Bear Republic's other offerings.
