COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pass through the event horizon with this IPA2. American Cascades meld a citrus blast with spicy English First Golds. Savor an intense hoppiness, smooth bitterness and subtle malt character. Prepare to go hypersonic!

Hazy amber - gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light, smooth and has reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth malts, mildly sweet. Hops bring a pithy citrus. Mild tropical fruits. Spicy orange before a light finish. Nice enough.

Tap at Muddy Waters. Still get excited to see this brewery distribute more and more offerings in Mpls. Nose is heavy on pine resin and a slight floral hop note. Golden orange appearance...clear and filtered. Lacing is decent. Head quick to dissipate. Taste and mouthfeel have strong resin characteristics with an alcohol bite. Pine and hoppyness come into play with a slight cloying nature. Very nice finish with the malty backbone serving as a capable foil to the bitterness of the hops. Bigger and badder than Racer 5 and Grand Am but again very high quality.

Nicely balanced, though strong with hops. Some grapefruit-like bitterness, full and punchy. A nice IPA I would certainly get again.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On tap at Stanley’s. Pours a clear orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has strong pine supported by sweet grains and a bit resin. Flavor combines sweet citrus, pine and resin with slightly sweet and boozy grains supporting.

NikkTwist (2666) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour with a wide spray of beige foam. Sharp syrupy spicy citrus hop bite. Toasted sugarcane. Pink grapefruit pith and zest. Celery root. Burnt butter. Unusual. ABV is somewhat hidden but adds some harshness. Much bigger than the Racer 5; maybe a cousin to the Racer 15. Big, sweet and spicy.

Another great Bear Republic offering. A bit heavier than Racer 5, but same distinctive hoppy flavor. Two of these had me feeling pretty good.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a clear golden orange hue with a medium white head. A light toast and orange nose. The flavor is sharp sweet citrus, resin, deep hot oranges. A big spicy bite. Very interesting. Comes in with a sharp alcohol heat that is a bit off putting. It’s good no doubt. Butterscotch sweet toasted malts.
