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...

Skykwby (48) - Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Snifter... Evening star Del Rey. Pours cloudy, hearty, caramel Amber. Virtually no head. Aroma isn't powerful, but if you get close and take a nice sniff, you will enjoy. Pineapple, vanilla, fresh. First sip emphasized quality over quantity. Going to grow on you as you sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (860) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Aroma - is very resinous buried deep below is a caramel malt. There is the presence of alcohol as well. Appearance - is an orange copper body with a thick white head that falls quicker than expected to just a slight foam - minor lacing. Taste - is full of bodacious pine resin - slightly oily big Pacific Northwest Hops - Cascade, Chinook really shine hear. The malt is muted. This is more of the classical IPA variety. There is no citrus decipherable in this beer. Palate - body is medium, texture on the oily approach, the carbonation average, the finish bitter and medium in length. When I entered into craft beer, this was what you came to expect from an IPA, pine not citrus. It’s not for the timid.
