    Argonaut has it for $8.49, Mayfair has it for $7.99 (no limit).

    On a related note, does anyone know why it's so hard to find fresh Racer 5? Does it just not sell well here? I swear I check the bottle dates every time I see bombers or sixers and there all from August or older.

    Cannot find Fresh Racer 5 very often nor can i find fresh West Coast IPA. Even with the new Bottle dates they are still way to far out to buy IMO.. Love WCIPA..

    same. quit buying either on account of freshness problems. skipped over racer x at both argonaut and mayfair the other day expecting more of the same.

    Picked up a bottle at Tipsys and didn't look at the date till I got home =(. Was not bad, but definitely not fresh either.

    I had a growler of this a few years back, one of the best DIPAs I've ever had.

    Cheers!
