Café Racer 15™ features aromas of bright citrus and resinous pine from the generous use of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops which are complimented by a dry malt finish. The result is a high revving Double IPA that is loud and assertive, much like the rebellious street racers who inspired it. Never ride alone...

euniceradio (270) - Colton, California, USA - AUG 14, 2015
22 bomber to cervoise. Pours hazy orange, white ring head. Aroma of OJ, grass, dank, pinewood, candied peach and cat piss. Taste is same with TONS of fruit juice. Mouthfeel is moderately thick and oily. Finish is fruity sweet balaced very well with booze and fruity (slightly spicy) bitterness. Pretty smooth beer for a 9.8 abv, but I can’t get over the cat piss aroma.

bnokk (289) - Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2015
APPEARANCE- A little cloudy, with orange hue and tremendously vibrant head that laces beautifully. NOSE- a bit of the citrus advertised on the bottle at first, but the resin takes over. FLAVOR- very strong resin flavors offset with a bit of tropical fruit notes for balance. NOTES- Excellent beer. Definitely lives up to 3x Racer 5, in a double IPA no less!

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Perfect double iPad in my opinion. Pine tar and pine resin aroma. Malty and dry flavor perfect balance. Fresh hoppy bitterness finishes this crystal clar copper color brew.

Pours a lovely traffic cone orange, slightly cloudy. Aroma is pine cone and tropical/stone fruit. Taste is mainly pine and resin; dry and bitter, with some boozy sweetness. less citrus and fruit than some DIPAs. Oily and heavy on the palate, but not in a bad way: it’s just a pine cone hop bomb, what did you expect? Delicious, though not exactly an everyday brew. More like a final indulgence to split...and then goodnight all.

Flavorful, aromatic, lovely. Poured out of a bomber, it's a light golden color, with a nice citrus aroma. Strong alcohol really smooths out the flavors. Fantastic beer.

Dark orangish color. The aroma is sweet, dank and orange citrus. The taste is sweet with some subtle pine and some citrus. The sweetness really shines through and this is a fantastic DIPA standing out from the usual Citrus bombs. Excellent.
