Bottle... Pours hazy and dark brown with a tan head. The aroma features chocolate, resin and a light splash of alcohol. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is roasty, burnt, bitter and a touch chocolaty. As this warms, the resiny hop bitterness doesn’t mellow. It stands strong. Burnt, grassy, pine finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Pretty much exactly what I expected/hoped for from this brew. Like all the other "Racer" IPAs. pungent hops, both pine and citrus, ample bitterness...and a light but distinct roasted malt, coffee abd coca character. At no point do you realize you are drinking an imperial strength brew. I don’t think this will have a long shelf life, but very good fresh. Finishes bitter and dry."
