COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...

jinroh (1207) - ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2016
On tap! Amber, bit of white foam. Definitely feels like an IPA, has a strong fruity malt body, some caramel even - and lots of fruity hops, ripe fruits. Tastes also mainly fruity and a bit sweet, hops are also there creating some balance. One thing I am not getting AT ALL is coffee. Where did it go? Very enjoyable as a nicely balanced and sweet-malty DIPA, but really was hoping for some stronger coffee notes. Or reading the description again, maybe there actually shouldn’t be any coffee??

Hermod (6435) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Draught @Brewdog Helsinki. Poured deep amber color with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma has hops, dark fruits, dates. Not feeling that fresh. Fruity, oranges, figs, sugars, hops. Heavy bitter but not in an enjoyable way. Probably nice fresh I would imagine.

willisread (2473) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 28, 2016
Tap at DC Kanda. Big orange, maramalade and juicy nose with booze noticeable as well. Quite boozy and sweet on the palate. The orange and resin hops are there, but just too sweet for my liking. Like an orange popsicle or something. Boozy finish with more sugary orange sweetness.
