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.

2013. Gorgeous mahogany, long lasting foam. Blast of clean citrus fruit, some dandelion. Thick but not sticky hop taste, perfect bitterness.
