This is a hoppy IPA. Did I say hops? Your brewer is a hop head! This is a full bodied beer using American grains. The goal was to create a base for showing off the unique floral qualities of two Pacific Northwest hops, Columbus and Cascade. Columbus is a new hybrid High Alpha Acid hop used mostly for bittering, but used heavily as an aromatic in this strong brew. Cascade is the balance that ties the malt and bittering hops together. It is a true specialty ale and is our brewer's statement on this style.

Racer 5 is one of the best IPA's I have crossed. There is a great mix of floral hopiness, subtle bitterness, and a smooth character that make this Bear Republic's most popular, and most tasty, beer. This beer has been popping up all over the Philadelphia area and I recommend it to anyone who like craft beers and especially those who enjoy the IPA category of brews.

WHERE/HOW: Local 44 in Philadelphia from the hand-pumped cask tap. Fantastic.
