COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Café Racer 15™ features aromas of bright citrus and resinous pine from the generous use of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops which are complimented by a dry malt finish. The result is a high revving Double IPA that is loud and assertive, much like the rebellious street racers who inspired it. Never ride alone...

On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town Alexandria. Nose has quite a bit of citrus and some mild tropical fruit. The flavor is slightly boozy, but overall quite nice. Hefty bitterness on a medium body. A touch of residual sweetness. I prefer Racer 5.

On tap at Red Cow North Loop. Pours a clear gold with a copper hue and a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of pine with some resin, grapefruit, a hint of onion and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has a nice combination of pine, grapefruit and sweet grains with a resinous bite underlying.

Light citrus aromas. Decent head. Hop forward, citrusy, piney finish. Finishes clean

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2017
Bottle. Nose rindy, lemon with caramel and grapefruit, very lean tropical. Pour opaque but rich, glowing golden with some mild orange mixed in, a creamy-rocky white head. Taste sweet with a strong alcoholic element, slight oil and medium resin; pine, herbal, caramel, vanilla, mint, sugary, medium bitterness, clean but not particularly attractive. Very full body, just a bit too much, and that holds for the whole -- bold flavors but slapped together and close to clashing. [2017.04.03: 2.9]

Orange/amber in the glass, looks tasty, with a subtle citrus and hops aroma. Tastes of citrus and caramel, very nice. From a bottle in my cellar. Definitely have to get this excellent beer again soon.

Lowe1983 (1570) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Pours a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus hops and caramel malts with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is strong of the citrus hops up front but finished with a nice blend of the caramel malts.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Translucent cloudy orange with medium white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is citrus/herbal hops, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is citrus hops, herbal hops, and pine hops. Nice beer.

Atom (2344) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2017
On tap at busters, pours a lightly Hazy orange copper with a medium khaki head. Sweet malt and hop aroma, citrus and tropical. Some bitter sweet fruity hops with, caramel malt. Meh, doesn’t separate itself from many similar DIPAs.

High in alcohol, which I like. The taste isn’t great, but damn if it isn’t strong.
