Bottle. Poured a deep gold, some hop haze, and a foamy white head. Aroma of plenty of citrus with a balanced sweet malt presence. Flavor had tangerine, lemon, biscuit, and a touch of sweet malts. Decently balanced. I’m more into the fruit bombs IPAs of today, but this one is good and has been around forever. Gotta respect the Racer 5 and how consistent Bear Republic has been with it.

Duchammer (145) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - DEC 29, 2015

HuskerTan (1271) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Bottle. A- Tangerines, juicy, stone fruits, caramel, biscuits, pine. A- Orange color, slightly hazy liquid, off white head. T- Pine, floral, caramel, bitter, slightly fruity. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Loved the aroma and even the taste to a degree but the caramel and bitterness was just too much and overpowering on the finish. Certainly not a bad beer and I think it was a bit on the aged side but overall, a solid beer.

One2remeber (236) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Draft, Valley Tavern. Slight chill haze. Grapefruit, orange, fruity pebbles. Heavier on the specially malts than most, moderately high body. Yeast and dry hop muck taste/aroma is strong. Sharp, but low, nutty, buttery taste from caramel malt. Great hop taste, a bit too malt forward for my style, but clean.

AnokaBrewer (149) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle. It says it is bottle conditioned. It poured a slight hazy amber, but no noticeable sediment in the bottle. Hoppy and citrus aroma. Small white head and not much carbonation. Taste is slight bitter from the hops. Good variety of hops in the beer. Alight bitter finish. The 7.5% alcohol is well hidden.

Saeglopur (1434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 8, 2015
355 ml bottle from Firma Bier.
Amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, resin, passion fruit, citrus candy, bsicuit.
Taste follows this, with a quite heavy malt backbone, but also with more bitter, resinous notes.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, medium dry, piney, zesty, resinous, a bit herbal, malty.

Very nice. Really lovely, crisp nose, taste is also nice, but maybe too heavy, the malt backbone and bitter level are almost like a Double IPA. Very good piney finish though. Overall not among my favourite IPAs, I prefer it less malty, medium bodied, but a very good style example nonetheless.
