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...

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2013
On tap. Hoppy grapefruit galore in the nose, reminiscent of my beloved Vermont IPAs. Stubborn lace & head retention stir up similar memories. Smooth and rounded flavor profile, thanks to the malt backbone canceling out the hoppy assault. Bitterness shows itself only at the very end. Quite good.

JaBier (7424) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Sample at Studio 35 as part of the Princess Bride movie and beer tasting on 2/19/17. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, orange, grapefruit and pine. Malt and sweet orange flavor with a bitter grapefruit finish. Nice.

bookman10 (1038) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy, copper-gold. with smallish head. Aroma has citrus (lemon!) notes and piney hops. Flavor is full of citrus and hops, with a quite significant alcohol burn to it (the one drawback noted). Otherwise, not bad.

dwyerpg (5888) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 14, 2017
I absolutely love this. Full of fruity hips, mostly grapefruit, in both the aroma and the body. Nice bittering hops at the back end. Excellent beer.

commonmac (1141) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2017
On tap at Muddy Waters with Johnston crew. Chalice/tulip style pour. Hazy and cloudy deep orange with a golden tinge. Solid lacing and a quarter finger white head. Aroma is heavy citrus with some pine resin characteristics as well. Taste is very bright and fresh with plenty of elements of citrus (grapefruit) and a dank quality towards the end and at the finish. Beautiful mouthfeel with a slight oily/resiny lean. This is how a double IPA should be made. Highly recommended.

TBone (16630) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2016
Tap at Beer Hunters, Pori. Dark orange color, small steady white head, lace. Citrus and pineapple in the nose. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Tropical fruity, pineapple, citrus. Quite sweet, a bit alcoholic but pleasant and hoppy.

FatPhil (15154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2016
Tap (One Pint, Helsinki)
Sweet mashy DIPA aroma, fruity, citrussy, piney, a bit in-ya-face. Taste kinda what you’d expect given the aroma, but the in-ya-face aspect is toned down appreciably. Almost lightish palate with zesty bite and carbon dioxide. Certainly a bit brash, but drinkability remarkably there. Finish a little soapy, piney, and zesty. Almost enjoyed this DIPA, that’s how good it is!

1/2 pint on tap @ One Pint Pub. Pours cloudy golden with a low head. Aroma is malts with some tropical fruits. Flavor is creamy malts, fruits, some pine, some alcohol and hops. Pretty good.

Hazy orange with light grayish head. Raisins and caramel and grapes with some herbs. Slightly sticky, sweet and of course bitter.

jinroh (1365) - ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2016
On tap! Amber, bit of white foam. Definitely feels like an IPA, has a strong fruity malt body, some caramel even - and lots of fruity hops, ripe fruits. Tastes also mainly fruity and a bit sweet, hops are also there creating some balance. One thing I am not getting AT ALL is coffee. Where did it go? Very enjoyable as a nicely balanced and sweet-malty DIPA, but really was hoping for some stronger coffee notes. Or reading the description again, maybe there actually shouldn’t be any coffee??
