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.

On tap at AHA NHC Vegas 04 Nice clear copper color with good head and lacing. Lots of pine in the nose and flavor. There is a lot of citrus too. Chalky texture. Dry finish. Damn good beer that is balanced toward the hops!

Big huge hoppy brew with a very thin body. Great except it leaves a little to be desired in the mouthfeel. Excellent session brew.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2011
On tap at the Pourhouse. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with act ice carbonation supporting a medium thin off-white head. Strong piney, grapefruit aroma. Big West Coast hop bomb explodes on your tongue with plenty of fresh citrus. Caramel, milk chocolate, mango and a little vanilla round out the flavors. Silky, creamy texture and a bracingly bitter but balanced, dry finish.

Daytonbeer (730) - Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours orange with white head and very little lacing. The aroma is awesome. ...like putting columbus and centennial hops up your nose. Taste is bitter with tangerine hops and some hop spice. Some alcohol at the end. Love it!

Quite a smooth IIPA, very nice blend of hops. Poured from bombers, although 6-packs are now available.

Pdubyah (710) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2014
terribly good beer. Nively floral, lovely bitter that isnt all of it, great caramels, nice carbonation and looks great and has a decent head, Enjoyed it from the aroma to the finish,. However it is a heavy drinking beer and you might be struggling to have more than the one. But it was a good one :-)

Great brew I had at Capones with Justin and Katie. Pour was a nice medium orange with a thin layer of head in the flight glass. Aroma was pine hops and earthy tones which flowed nicely into the flavor which accented some sweet hops in the finish.
