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...

omhper (23317) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy deep golden, rich creamy head. Generus aroma of mango and grapefruit. Somewhat dryish with slimmer body than anticipated. Peppery mango, grapefruit and pine. Heated finish with long piney bitterness. An IIPA without syrup and caramel, with intense citrusy hops? If only all IIPA’s were like this, even if it is somewhat boozy.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle shared at Sander’s in NYC. Pours clear, deep gold with a creamy white head. The aroma holds tons of juicy, ripe grapefruit, orange. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots of ripe citrus, good grapefruit, orange, rich pale malts, moderate booze. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Well and resinous to finish, hefty grapefruit, faint white bread. It’s punchy but still well balanced.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Bottle, 22oz. An unclear, golden-orange colored beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Some lacings. Pleasant orangey and piney aroma leaving little room for the aroma. Bitter flavor with some pale malts. Pine cones, orange peel and citrus. Lasting finish. Well, it’s certinaly a nice DIPA, but still not there up with the best. 130803

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Chill haze on the golden orange pour. Small white head and nice lacing. Bright grapefruit, orange, and tangerine aroma. Plenty of resinous pine, mild grass, and plenty of pineapple. Really nice pineapple flavor to go along with the grapefruit, tangerine, and oranges. Intense pine flavor and a strong bitterness on the finish. Surprisingly dry with just a bit of caramel flavor.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Tannish and a bit hazy, with a bubbly head. Very melony, hints of grapefruit, light florals. It’s a bit chewy, but with more of those melon hops. The malts end up being quite assertive, chewy (from Cali, big shock, huh?), and alcohol kicks in late. All these hops, to me, demand a cleaner, lighter body.
