Racer 5 India Pale Ale pours a light copper color with a white head from a brown twenty two ounce bottle. It has a nice, hoppy aroma that is somewhat floral. The taste is definitely dominated by hops, once again of a somewhat floral nature. The flavor really falls somewhere between a typical ipa and a double ipa. The malt is definitely in the background, but does a nice job of balancing this beer. An enjoyable beer.

From 4/10/10 notes. Had on tap at the Big Hunt in DC.

a - Pours a copper color with an inch of white head.

s - Smells of citrus, pine, some tropical fruits. Very nice.

t - Follows the nose...citrus and piney hops mostly.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - A pretty good and drinkable IPA. I enjoyed the pine and ctirus hops smell and taste. Would have again.
