tonight I am comparing this beer vs. Lagunitas Hop Stoopid vs. Great Divide Hercules in my search for the perfect IPA.
poured from a bottle into a lager glass, it's honey colored with a nice head. Very un-hopped aroma compared to the other two beers, but the flavor is very balanced: it has a subtle hop flavor with just the right amount of malt. Very easy to drink, in fact, you need to be careful not to drink too quickly because this is not a low alcohol beverage.
of the 3 beers I'm tasting tonght, this is the most balanced, but least IPA-like: the hop flavor is so subtle.
I'll keep searching for the perfect IPA, but I will definitely be drinking Racer 5 again!
