COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Racer Xģ is an uncommon Double India Pale Ale which puts a California twist on English brewing traditions by adding an assertive hop aroma and bitterness that compliments the firm malt backbone. Like its little brother Racer 5, Racer Xģ is balance in a bottle.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Draft @ Liarís Club. A clear amber in the glass with a creamy white head that mostly lasts and leaves big lacing. The aroma has a lemony floral presents with a malty background. Big grapefruit and lemon flavors followed up with pine and a caramel background. Medium body and medium bitterness. Extremely nice!

Draft at Oíbriens. Poured a golden orange with a nice frothy white head. Smells of hops, citrus, pine, and fruity aromas. Nice bitter taste of grapefruit, pine, and sweet fruit balance. Very nice IPA.

Draft at OíBrienís. Golden Orange color with a decent head. Lots of deep fruity hop aromas. Very sweet malty flavors with an incredible hop finish. Full mouthfeel around this citrus, fruit hop flavor filled beer. Wow incredible.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 On Draft - fresh, crisp, hoppy, citric type tastes - nice well hidden alcohol and an overall very nice IIPA...but not anywhere near the best.

Large fresh hop nose, shimmering copper amber color. Big sweet malt with candi-sugar-like qualities. Huge fat hop bite. This beer has everything...and more! Good show.

sersdf (1015) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2007
cask at NotLA. crazy hoppy, maybe the hoppiest beer iíve ever had. extraordinarily bitter. i didnít like it all that much, but iíll overrate it for achieving that title.

Zeswaft (1397) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Weird, could have sworn Iíve had this before. Super dry-hopped with cascades in the cask. NotLA 2007. All i can say is that itís ridiculously hoppy. almost overly hoppy and iím a hophead. Extremely pungent citrus aroma. and mouth puckering bitterness.
