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.

BeerandBlues2 (13814) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 30, 2009
Draught at Najas Place. Pours dark brown-mahogany with an average, creamy, off-white head, lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, nutty, bread), heavy hop (perfume, flowers, pine, citrus), average yeast (sweat) with notes of light alcohol and oak. Full bodied, creamy and alcoholic texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

3.9
Dogbrick (13777) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2008
On draught at Callahan’s in San Diego. This brew is a clear and lustrous bronze color with a medium beige head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of piney, resinous hops and grapefruit along with notes of sweet malt. Medium-bodied with an assertively hopped character that is balanced well by sweet grainy malt. Touches of caramel are present, and the alcohol slips in every once in awhile too. The finish is bitter with a lingering piney hops flavor. Good all around.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pine, florals, grass, and orange peel. Flavor of hops (citrus, pine) and caramel malt.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2008
On tap. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of pine needles, citrus, and just all around nice and hoppy. Tastes of pine, citrus, with some caramel. Definitely more hoppy than malty! Very nice hop bomb.

On tap at Rattle & Hum. Pours a mostly clear golden amber with a medium white head. Pine, citrus, malt, and a hint of vanilla. Very light carbonation. Finishes with a really long grapefruit and quinine bitterness. Delicious.

"Man...another great entry into the double ipa style. this one’s big all around, with a great piney nose, nice body, heavy flavors of hops and malt, and a dry bitter finish. You’ll want another."

Smooth drinking yet high IBU DIPA. Two weeks fresh, from Premier Gourmet. Fresh hoppy aroma. Gold colour. A sipper. Thanks Stephen.
