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 - Orange Gold with one finger of foamy white head, medium lacing.
S - Orange a little mango, big caramel malts, pine.
T - Caramel malt takes the for then you get some orange and dank pine, a little of that mango comes in, some grassy notes.
M - Sweet chewy, a little cloyingly sweet.
O - Good Double IPA, just a lot of malt, which they boast balance, but its a little off. Good flavor and aroma.

A: Deep orange color with a nice white head that quickly dissipates.

S: Pine, Hops, Floral scents.

T: A perfect balance of hops-to-malt. Super smooth drink-ability. Such a good blend. Very "west coast". Hop bomb up front with a pretty nice malt back bone.

M: Good lingering bitterness, not overwhelming, but just right for a double IPA.

Overall: This is a really good one. Will definitely be enjoying again in the near future.
