Name: Racer 5 India Pale Ale
Brewery: Bear Republic Brewing Co. website
Region: Healdsburg, California
ABV: 7.00% Abv
How served: 22oz capped bomber poured into a Lamoral glass.
My Overall Opinion: Very Good.
I paired this beer with: Gnocchi with a tomato sausage sauce.
Tasted on: Wednesday March 10th, 2010.
Note: Racer 5 is up there with the best IPA’s on the market. Easy drinking and refreshing with no hint of the 7% abv to slow you down. IPA wise, I do prefer their Hop Rod Rye only slightly more.
On the Label: Racer 5 is an aggressive styled India Pale Ale. Handmade from a brewery whose motto is “Bigger is Better”. This golden, well hopped, bottle conditioned ale demands your attention. Try the next generation of I.P.A. Racer 5…Go…Go… BREW MASTER NOTES Keep cold, respect life, don’t D + D, real ale is alive, yeast is good, serve at 45°-50° F.

Since posting my beer inventory I noticed I had too many IPA’s & DIPA’s on hand. So over the next few weeks I will be cleaning my inventory out of IPA’s and Double IPA’s before they fade too much. Here is what you will expect to see on my Blog soon, in no particular order. (note I will only add to this blog the beers below which have not made it to this blog)
