Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Racer X is an uncommon Double India Pale Ale which puts a California twist on English brewing traditions by adding an assertive hop aroma and bitterness that compliments the firm malt backbone. Like its little brother Racer 5, Racer X is balance in a bottle.

I had this beer today at Falling Rock Tap House in Denver. I had 2- 16 oz pints. This is a great beer and I will definitly go back and drink it again. Great mouth feel, great smell and very drinkable. Even though it is 9%, you are not overwhelmed by the alcohol. Racer X is great from start to finish.
