TreadyTalk (15) - Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Moderately strong, hoppy aroma with the color of a particularly rich IPA. Chewy with a delayed onset of hop flavor. Tastes of dark fruits and malts with a sharp raisin flavor.

NikkTwist (2608) - 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.

douglas88 (8148) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2016
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. Itís good no doubt. Butterscotch sweet toasted malts.

ABUSEDGOAT (2554) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Pours partially on the table, but once it found it to the glass it was hazy amber with a huge head with good lace/retention (4 --> 3 for gushing). Aroma is grapefruit, pine, orange, caramel, citrus. Medium to full bodied, moderate to high bitterness, not bad I just wish I drank the full 650ml instead of 500ml.

rougeau13 (2514) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Tap at whole foods in Katy. Hazy reddish caramel color with a resilient milky cream colored head with heavy lacing. Tropical, toasted caramel, aroma with a hint of pine. Fruity and sweet taste with mild actual bitterness except for what lingers in the finish. Full bodied, smooth.

ben4321 (5551) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Location: 22 oz bottle from Hoboken Vine, 5/24/16

Aroma: The nose is bready, with spice, pine hops, and some rye as well, didnít get much citrus here
Appearance: Murky mostly orange color with a thick, creamy off-white head and coating lace
Flavor: Leans stronger toward the bread / spice up-front, with hop bitterness in the mid-through-close
Palate: Medium-full bodied, a little sticky, a little creamy, and with a strong, heavy dry closure
Overall Impression: This is some pretty solid stuff for a brewery whoís hoppy beers I have enjoyed for years. Stronger on the spice side than most IPAs and DIPA, more reminiscent of a Rye DIPA. Itís also not the most complex citrus or pine hop aroma or flavor for an IPA, but itís got the bitterness part covered. Pretty nice looking beer with a good mouthfeel, and the flavor is solid too.
