This is a very well balanced IPA. I love hops but sometimes IPAs and double-IPAs can have that in-your-face-hop-pop that is a bit reminiscent of skunk. With Racer 5 you get that initial punch of hop followed by a floral, honey bloom that tapers into a green apple bite. It's 7% abv in case that matters to you.
