3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town Alexandria. Nose has quite a bit of citrus and some mild tropical fruit. The flavor is slightly boozy, but overall quite nice. Hefty bitterness on a medium body. A touch of residual sweetness. I prefer Racer 5.

Pours a gorgeous hazy amber with a finger of white head. Strong aroma of juicy citrus; orange, grapefruit. Slight pine notes as well. The aroma matches the flavor with more of the citrus fruits coming through. Sweetness from the malts and alcohol are present. Very balanced and tasty DIPA.

Very juicy tropical fruit aromas. Hazy orange with a fairly lasting, bubbly white head. Dry, bitter, freshly hoppy. Light-medium bodied, clean, very refreshing.

Let me start by saying I need more Bear Republic in my life. Their hop sensibilities seem to be tuned to my palate. Bottle, pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a nice head. Aroma is a lime green, lime green and tangerine. Flavor matches, with a hint of pine over the relatively neutral caramel malt underpinnings. Great balance while still being a showcase for the hops. Truly masterful. Love, love, love this. Wish like heck that I could get a growler.

On draft at Hay Merchant. Clear orange pour, fluffy white head. Sons is grapefruit, pine, apricot, lemon zest. Sweetness from a malt presence and alcohol. Super sticky motel costs the tongue. A joy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Strangeloves. Hazy orange pour that starts with a gigantic frothy white head. Taste is strongly reminiscent of the Racer Five but fuller and more alcoholic. Big orange pith flavors. Lots of drying oak barrel notes. Wonderful stuff but maybe a bit too one note.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose is quite hoppy with some nice floral and piney elements to it. Taste is quite frsh and just a little bit sweet, though there are hints of the hoppy bitterness in there. Pretty good.
