4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Massive hops, spice, herb and yeast on the nose. Beautiful, deep copper with an orange tint. Clearly has that classic Racer 5 taste with a more intense bitterness and some spice. Caramel, bread and oat malts help support a massive hop attack on the palate. Overall, This is a beast of beer with unbelievable balance. The alcohol is very noticeable on the finish. Well-done with this one Bear Republic. I’d give this an A+ rating

On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. I've had and enjoyed Racer 5, but this completely blows it out of the water. The flavor they fit into R5's DIPA counterpart is something to be experienced. A very California style IPA, and that is a compliment in every way.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled in a bomber aged for a couple months. A big time adventure through hops. Really smooth but with a intense hops palate and aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark hazy burnt orange hue with creamy diminishing white creamy with minimal head, sharp citrus and pine needle smell, sweet and bread malt, minimal carbonation syrupy as it warmed, seems high in alcohol there is something funky in the back end. Sweetness and alcohol outdoes everything else.

Bottle. Pours cloudy copper with beige head and lacing. Nose of caramel malt, with a little pine and citrus. Definitely a fresh one, mostly malts coming through. I’ve had this on draft years ago and recall it being much better.

Pour on tap, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, grapefruit, orange, biscuit, touch of grass, nice orange marmalade notes, going into caramel, toffee, some earth and spicy tones. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, orange marmalade going into bitter grapefruits, some sweet tropical fruit, pine, grass into earth, slight spice with some caramel, toffee, finishing bitter, dry. Nice.

Orange pour with a nose of pine and muted citrus. Initially soft on the palate with a big bitter finish. I like the English/West coast mix of this. Very drinkable.
