S- Citrusy, grapefruit, light caramel
T- resiny and piney up front leading into stone fruit notes of tangerine and apricot and finishing with grapefruit and a resiny bitterness.
M- medium bodied with ample carbonation

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
