2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In bottle (advent calendar) .. well, another RR beer that foamed up alot when I opened it so I only had about half a bottle left.
An OK, beer .. I am not an IPA fan though found this drinkable as it seemed less hoppy; some nice citrus ... still wouldn’t buy it again though

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is clove, lemon grass, earthiness and light sweet malts. Taste is light crystal malts which transition into a fairly full hop body that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a clear gold witb a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a clear golden colour with a couple of fingers of head and lots of retention. Leaves fairly thick lacing on the glass.
Aroma: Lychee, grapefruit, hops and some vegetable aromas. However, this fades quickly to just hops and vegetables with no trace of fruit left.
Flavours: Grapefruit, orange peel, hint of lime and similar to the aromas, just fades to hops and bitterness pretty quickly.
Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An okay IPA that that starts off as totally fruit driven. There was a lot of fruit coming from the aromas and I was getting flavours like grapefruit, lime and lots of other citrus along with orange peel. However, after a few minutes the fruit aromas totally faded away along with the fruit like flavours leaving just hops and vegetables. I don’t think I would buy this one again.

Can. Clear and amber, but exceptionally sedimented. Could be an old can, given where I got it, but never seen such a sedimented beer from a can. Despite that, this is a great drink ... crisp, appley yet snappy with hoppy finish that sucks the moisture right out of your mouth. Good stuff. (#5914, 1/4/2014)

22oz bomber: This one pours a hazy slightly orangish amber color. There was a small off white head that doesn’t linger long or leave much lacing. Good hop nose. An earthy pine as well as some grapefruit. A bit of biscuit also. The taste is pretty good. A fair amount of bitterness. Grapefruit and pine hop flavors, as well as a bit of biscuit. Also a bit of caramel malts and some sweetness peeking through. Not bad at all!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle poured into a glass. Color is amber-orange, a bit cloudy (but uniform), nice dense light-yellow-whiteish foam. Aroma of pine, citrus and herbal. Taste is intense, a lot of bitterness, pine and citrus especially grapefruit in aftertaste. Very good beer. ////////////////////////////////////
Butelka 650ml przelana do szkła. Kolor pomarańczowo bursztynowy, piwo dość mętne (ale jednolite). Piękna jasno żółta, niemal biała i gęsta piana, która długo się utrzymuje. Aromat sosnowy, cytrusowy, ziołowy. W smaku głębokie, sosnowe, bardzo goryczkowe, dużo cytrusów, a zwłaszcza grejfrut w posmaku. Bardzo dobre.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dry, thick piney hop notes highlight this very drinkable IPA. The finish is fairly clean and smooth, with no over the top hop bitterness. And with it’s very manageable 6.5%, it doesn’t seem too filling or cloyingly sweet. A very unobtrusive and sessionable IPA.

Draft at simmzys in Manhattan beach. Pours a mostly clear deep golden light amber color with an off white head. Aroma light caramel malts, fleshy fruit, floral character. Big fruity bite in the flavor. Light to medium in body and very quenchable. Tasty.

Somehow less citrusy than their Pale Ale, Red Racer’s IPA seems to focus more on pine and hop bitterness - which isn’t a bad thing. Very nice IPA.

Rated based on limited notes taken on 16 Mar 2012 -- Drank out of a can at Cans in Chicago. I honestly don’t remember much other than the 5 star rating I gave this on Untappd. So cool, I loved it. Good beer.
