Racer 5 poured with a small, off-white head. Beer color is golden, and there is a fair amount of fine sediment in the glass. The aroma has some grapefruity citrus and maybe a little pine, but is not overly sharp. The taste has more pronounced grapefruit and pine, which give it a nice dry, bitterness on the back of the tongue. Enough malt to balance things out, but the hops are still predominant. A little caramel sweetness. Medium to full bodied. The aftertaste leaves the dry bitterness on the back of the tongue. This is a smooth, flavorful IPA that I would definitely drink again.
