American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.30% ABV

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'm so lucky, just another local prized DIPA!!!
22oz bomber from the brewery

A: Pours with a nice 2 finger cream white head, Golden, Amber. AMAZING LACING!!! Took a picture and sent it to half a dozen people.

S: Citrus, Tropical, Tangerine

T: Hoppy Liquid Candy. The hops are more fruity than harsh, great tart punch still. Well balance from start to finish. Alcohol is there but hidden well.

M: Smooth, Heavy but Crisp. Great Carbonation, maintained a sold layer of foam the whole way down.

O: Tasted like an awesome blend of Stoopid and Elder. Love it!!! This beer should be top 10 DIPA. Get some!
