Racer 5 pours a wonderful deep gold with a nice fluffy white head. Very good head retention.
Great, clean citrussy hop aromas. Lots of powerful grapefruit and passionfruit. Really, really good.
Really well balanced with a not overpowering bitterness which is at a good level with lots of candy like mandarin, passionfruit and citrus sweetness. A good sweet malt bill also holds up well here. Really good and one of the best IPAs I've had.
Good full body with average carbonation holds the flavours up well here.
A great drinkable IPA with lots of flavour, great aromas and good bitterness. A really top notch IPA.
