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...

Aroma-Im getting huge tropical fruit notes, peach notes and citrus notes. Appearance-Golden color, slightly hazy. 2 finger off white head. Taste-Slightly sweet which I like in IPA’s. Fairly bitter which I love Overall-Hands down one of my favorite DIPA’s. Hopefully one day I will be able to enjoy this on tap somewhere.

Resinous aroma with lots of pine & citrus. BIG bitter flavor is peppery, oniony with a nice bite and kick.

Pours a golden orange with a head that lingers. The aroma is awesome. A little piney but mostly grapefruit, melon, mango scents. Clean drinking big beer that makes you wish you had an extra bottle.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass a cloudy amber yellow color with a thick beige head. Aroma of citrus & pine with a sweet malty overtone. Flavor of Amarillo hops is foremost. Thinking sweet pinecones. The balance with the malts brings sweetness to the table with a finish of bitterness that is almost perfect. Overall this is an incredible DIPA.

Absolutely fantastic. Might be the best beer I have ever had. Went to bottle room in Whittier, it was the only keg in L.A., and was wealth worth what it cost. Not the most bitter beer (thats what I like) but very great tasting, does not taste like 8.5%.

This is definitely one of the most balanced west coast IPAs I’ve ever had. Tons of typical resiny, citric, piney goodness with a strong, assertive caramelly malt backbone. This beer manages to be very balanced without too much heft and while keeping the finish dry. Definitely a must try.
