Wow I am loving this IPA. It's a beautiful hazy golden color, and laces the glass nicely.
Wonderfully flavorful and Bursting with that floral, citrusy, hoppy taste I crave. Now among my top beer choices.

Great West Coast IPA, should have the reputation of Sculpin.

Outstanding Beer. My buddy Ben turned me onto the Racer. We found it at this little hole in the wall store in Maryland. I don't think they even knew what they had because it was the only quality beer they had. One of my best afternoons was spent drinking this beer with my boy Ben. Heres to you big guy!
