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...

bhensonb (14079) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours orange/gold with a foamy off-white head. Strong citrus aroma. Near full bodied. Flavor is fruit, citrus, pine with a very nice caramel backdrop. Very flavorful. Heat not a problem til the gullet. Finishes arguably dry, with a lot of mixed hop flavor and that beautiful caramel. This seems to be a very well done ale.
