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.

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

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

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.

tmoreau (2902) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold hue, with a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spots of lacing. The aroma was sweet & fruity esters, floral perfume, then a seasoned/aged scent to the malt that seemed to combine with alcohol to form a BW scent. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste added a moderate, earthy bitterness that was mellowed some by a touch of malt & esters sweetness. Felt some alcohol, but altogether, didn’t come off as bold as I would’ve expected.
