Notes/Commercial Description:
Café Racer 15™ features aromas of bright citrus and resinous pine from the generous use of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops which are complimented by a dry malt finish. The result is a high revving Double IPA that is loud and assertive, much like the rebellious street racers who inspired it. Never ride alone...

Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in late August for $7.99. Best by 1/11/2014...WTF? Thought I was getting a new bottle knowing a new release was coming out and TW selling out last year...I love how our distributors throw old stuff out into the market...shame on me!

Beer poured golden with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is pungent with dank hops.

Taste is oranges, mango, grapefruit, and pine. Malt backbone is huge but hops overwhelm with a nice bittering lingering on the palate.

Mouthfeel is full and smooth.

Overall a very good brew. Do i need to apologize to the local distributor? Seems like it is fairly fresh but I will need to find another bottle from this year's batch.
