Bear Republic Racer X
Bear Republic Racer X is essentially a double version of Racer 5. This is a very typical west coast style DIPA with lots of dank hops, sweet malt and a strong bit of alcohol on the nose. Resinous pine (that doesn’t cross into that onion flavor) dominates the flavor profile. The malt seems to get a bit lost behind all the hops, but it is sweet enough to do it’s job of balancing well enough. This DIPA is a lot more dank and earthy as compared to Café Racer 15. Not exactly my taste in a DIPA but I recognize the quality and I am enjoying this just fine. Overall this is rated very high, and if you are a fan of this kind of DIPA I would go for it.
