On tap at Horse Brass Pub in Portland, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of piney hops and caramel malts for balance. Flavour of caramel malts, followed by intense piney hoppiness, finishing very bitter. Rich and delicious hoppy goodness. brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: A clear copper color with a fluffy off-white foam that sits atop.
S: A very fruity, tropical hop aroma. Lots of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine. There is also a fairly sweet, caramel aroma.
T: Very much like the nose, the taste has a wonderful fruity hop flavor with a fair amount of bitterness, but not harsh by any means. The sweet malt is there, but not a big player.
M: For an IPA, Racer X is quite full bodied. There is a high level of carbonation which keeps it refreshing and prevents it from feeling too syrupy on the tongue.
D: Despite the high alcohol content, you don’t really notice the booze. A very nice balance of hop bitterness, fruitiness, and malt. bhensonb (15187) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2009
