COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle from the Liquor Barn in Redding, CA. Pours a copper color with just the slightest of an amber hue. This is my favorite type of DIPA. Nicely balanced with hop and malt. Flavors of citrus, especially grapefruit are present. NICE!!!!

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
Pours a deep burnt orange with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is a good balance of hoppy citrus, pine, tropical fruit, and malty biscuite, toffee and caramel. The flavour is also well balanced, resinous hops, grapefruit, tropic fruit, passion fruit, sweet malts mingle in, highlighting the sweet passion fruit notes which seems to be the star of the show. Super solid.
