I had this beer today at Falling Rock Tap House in Denver. I had 2- 16 oz pints. This is a great beer and I will definitly go back and drink it again. Great mouth feel, great smell and very drinkable. Even though it is 9%, you are not overwhelmed by the alcohol. Racer X is great from start to finish.
