Appearance gold body; frothy, long-lasting white head; great lace; just a touch cloudy; particulates abound
Smell grapefruit and pine; bit of spice; biscuity sweetness
Taste grapefruit rind and pine; light caramel and alcohol; biscuity malts emerge to nearly meet the level of hop; more balance than many top contenders; great hoppy aftertaste
Mouthfeel slight crispness on the tongue throughout; more substance than the average IPA; pleasant hop oil at close; a light bit of dryness in transition
Drinkability the aftertaste and afterfeel draw big marks here
Damn. I love the 5 but not enough to match the score to name. Racer 4.x doesnt exactly roll off the tongue but Racer 5 is certainly built for it.
