Racer X® 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 X® is balance in a bottle.

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Awesome hop arms form a copper pour with white head. Biscuit malts and fresh pine flavor with some hoppy dried fruit balance. Slight alcohol army’s excellent beer.

BeerRenter76 (341) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a medium coppery amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus and light pine hops and bready malt. Flavor follows with remarkably well integrated malt, citrus and citrus hops. Finishes with citrus rind and herbal hops. While not quite as intense hops as many Western IIPAs, the flavors are so well balanced that this is a pleasure to drink. Medium bodied with a pleasant creaminess.

Bottle, perhaps a bit old. Cloudy orange gold, light tan head. Resinous, tangy deep citrus, orange, light ethanol, deeper biscuit notes. Decently tangy, bitter, strong biscuity malt backbone. Lightly oily, medium body, decent amount of acidity. Medium finish. Well balanced, good.

650ml bottle from Whole Foods - Tribeca, New York. Best By 02/24/15 :/

Hazy orange colour with a big white head. Caramel, sweetness, spruce, fruits, dry bitterness.. Still good so fresh one would be great I guess.

CObiased (127) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2015
This beer a deep hazy golden with a touch of copper and a fluffy rich head. The aroma is less intense than I thought but yet still full of citrus, pine resin, bitter rind and a whiff of sweet malt. On the palate it's a huge blast of bitter hop goodness. The 8.3 ABV is virtually non-existent amongst the hop layers and light caramel malts.
