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...

Bottle. Pours an orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of grass, dank, weed, pine, herbs, and caramel. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, resin, herbs, grass, and some caramel with a dry, bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well, but ooooh you feel it. Nice!

650 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium white head that has good retention. The aroma features citrus and pine. The taste is tropical citrus, grapefruit and oranges in particular, set in a ridiculously sweet caramel malt base. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes sweet. Overall: Too much caramel for me.

Belle bière couleur de miel, légèrement voilée et couverte d’une dense écume nappant le verre d’une riche dentelle. Au nez, un mix gagnant: caramel, agrumes et résine. Elle est bien amère et peu sucrée. Elle est crémeuse, de corps robuste, moyennement effervescente et se yermine sur une souce amertume et des lomgs arômes bien réussis.

Draft. At brewery. Taste and nose is hoppy with some catty pissines. Overall ok.

Came back to the brew pub just to try this whilst on vacation on Ryans advice. Super beer, big nose and big flavours. Was worth the extra bit of effort.

A very, very solid DIPA from the west coast at a great brewery. I wish I was able to get my hands on this more often.

This golden beer has a piney hop aroma. It has strong hop flavor but mellows into a grapefruit like flavor. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonusWagner (1680) - Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Nose has a robust citrus hop profile in the nose and in the finish. Strong with a bit of alcohol but light sweetness. A bit resinous also. Really just a nice example of the west coast hoppy ipa style.

A- Pours a deep hazy tangerine color with a 1.5 finger off white head that leaves frothy lacing on the way down. S- Citrus, tangerine, blood orange, grapefruit, apricot T- Deep bitterness all the way through, apricot, tangerine, grapefruit, caramel, residual sweetness, slightly piney on the back end. M- Thick with medium carbonation. D- Really delicious smelling brew that packs a punch. Way too big to enjoy all the time but something I really savored and enjoyed.
