Racer 5 IPA

Bear Republic Brewing (Cloverdale, CA)
"This hoppy IPA is a full bodied beer brewed with malted barley, wheat, and crystal malts. The malt base is designed to highlight the unique floral qualities Columbus and Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest."

This beer is growing on me. First impression was so-so. But now, this evening, I am impressed. I see a few more 5's in my future.
"Local" is always better.

update: have had many more ... tart, complex and really delicious. This beer certainly lives up to its reputation.... still impressed!

ABV 7.5%, IBU 75 Hops: Cascade, Columbus, Chinook, and Centennial Malt: 2-Row Barley, White Wheat, Crystal Yeast: Ale Yeast
