BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2007
A sweet, rich and hazy amber beer with a hoppy bitter finish. Sweet and smooth with a very bitter hoppy and citrus aftertaste. Hints of caramel. Very complex.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2007
On draft at the Comet. Pours a golden color with a nice inch of head. Smell is glorious hops, plain and simple. The taste is much the same. Mostly citrusy hops and some grassy hops in to balance it out. Mouthfell is medium bodied and quite nice. Very impressed with this beer.

Pours a hazy orangeish-golden with a dense white head. Aroma is hoppish with pine, citrus and floral. Flavor has loads of grapefruit and pine with a caramel background which is faint.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Clear dark straw color with persistent 1 cm white head. Nice strong hop aroma with grapefruit and pine components. Light to medium palate. Great robust tastes with the citrus flavors coming out more. Lingering bitter finish. Very well done.

Nice foamy head. Amber pour. Citrus and hop flavors. Nicely balanced and very smooth at 7%. Great Beer.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Velvety white head, deep brassy orange body with suspended flaky particles. Grapefruit, pine, and an herbal aroma like geranium. Very hoppy but nice lightly sweet malt balance as well. Nice lively palate. This is a fine IPA.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours an orange gold with a normal sized head. Nose is completely grapefruit. This is a hopbomb. Loads of hops and not a whole lot of malting and maybe just a thought of sweetness included. Bitterness persists from lips to swallow but the blend of hops made this pretty good, although definately not a session brew. Good quencher on a hot day.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Nice floral citrus aroma in a golden orange beer with a small white head. Flavor is mostly straight hops to the face. A ton of citrus. As it warms it becomes a little less bitter and one can start noticing a little fruity aspect of the beer. A mild sweet fruity maltiness peeks through. Very dry, very resiny, very tasty. This is a great IPA. Good old Racer 5. You can never go wrong with this one.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle, poured a clear pale amber with a thick white head. Strong hop aromas, lots of grapefruit and floral notes. Flavors are quite similar. It is fairly obvious (along with the description) that copious amounts of Cascades and C-bus hops were used. Not much of a malt base, this is a hoppal assualt, and a quite good one. Finish is quite dry and nicely bitter.

Racer 5, makes me think of the big eyed kid in the half helmet and the song Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer Go! I would seriously suggest Racing out and find this great beer. Perfect bitterness and a finsh that has ready for the next sip .
