A-Pours a cloudy orange color with a very slight head. Looks just like Racer 5, one if the best readily available beers out there.

S-Aroma brings forth a decent amount of candied citrus and tangerines. Light pine and a bit more grass. Subtly sweet caramel and wet bread malt.

T-We'll hopped but I'm not sure if the flavones presented here are my favorite. I get strong candied citrus, which I don't always love the sweetness that accompanies this flavor. Lots of tangerines, too. Some caramel and breads notes.

M-Dry, bitter and a bit resiny. Pretty drinkable though.

O/D-A decent beer but give me Racer 5 over this any day. A tasty treat that I probably won't see again.

on-tap @ sixgill

Triple-dry hopped Racer 5, i believe. Was once the 5,000th batch of Racer 5, but this is clearly a remake. This stuff was solid - currents of green leafy hop, dank, herbal, loads of citrus. Cool variant of Racer 5 - a nice find on tap.
