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.

A - clear bright orange, 1 inch off white head.

S - citrus, orange, sweet pine

T - sweet malts, oranges, citrus, grapefruit with a nice hoppy bitter bite on the finish

M - buttery texture, smooth, bitter carbonation

O - really enjoyed this double. Drank on 12-10-14 and dated best by 1/30/15 so this may have a few months of age on it but still very good. I'd like to get one a little fresher to compare. I have only a few weeks to do so as bear Republic is pulling it's distribution out of MA in 2015. Hope to see them back in the future.
