A hazy orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of grass, hops, and acid from the hops, while the mouthfeel is sticky.

Bottle. Dusty golden colour with a small white head. Hoppy pine aroma and a hoppy bitter light dry taste. Medium body and a light sweet long bitter dry finish.

Wow! Now this is an IPA! Racer 5 is one of those brews that I have a hard time passing up. It’s a great beer at a great value ($4.00 a bomber here in CO). This beer has enough hops to keep hop-heads like myself happy, but also has a good sweet malt flavor to keep things balanced. I will always be a big fan of Bear Republic.

Wonderfully citric aroma of orange and grapefruit promises much and the sweet malt base supports the hefty dose of bitter hops which predominate the dry bitter finish. Very, very, very, refreshing.

On tap, Map Room Chicago. Crisp hop aroma up front is deceptive. Very dry, but understated at first, but then the hops blow up at the end as mind-numbing bitterness. Nice orange-brown coloring and mouthfeel. Put me down for more.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2005 On draft @ The Bistro. POurs orange with a whispy white head. Hoppy aroma (duh) with definite pine, grass and citrus notes. Flavor is way more hoppy than it is malty. A great every day IPA.

Great IPA. Tons of hops with a basket of fruits thrown in. But not too much to discard the balance. Will be coming back for more.

deep apricot color with minimal head. color was very reminiscdnt of apple cider. first had when chilled and the taste was watery with a very mild hop aftertaste. however, after the beer warmed up, the hops became more powerful which is a delight. this caused me to enjoy the beer much more

Pour is a orange with a nice big white head. Aroma is deffinatly hops. Flavor is subdued hops followed up with a nice offering of malts. It is a bit sweeter than most IPA’s like it says on the bottle. Decent attempt and the price is right, only $3 a bomber.

Lucky enough to get this one right off the drag racing circuit. Deliciously golden with adoring hops, a soft biscuit mouth and a nice citrus, pine, and west coast redwood finish. Worth it’s weight in gold...
