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 on tap at The PourFarm Tavern in New Bedford Mass. Poured a hazy red orange with a nice creamlike head .Citrus aromas hit you immediately at first smell...Wonderful! Taste is medium full body with a nice hoppy feel and some malt. This is a class A IPA

Serving type: on-tap
