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.

Bottle: Poured a deep hazy orangey color ale with a medium white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of citrus and earthy hops with some deep caramelized sweet malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by some citrus and earthy hops with a huge caramelized malt backbone with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is quite full with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable but just too sweet for my taste buds.
