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.

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.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2004
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!

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - DEC 7, 2002
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 (735) - 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!
