Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA

Out of Sonoma Country, California, Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA is a solid 'Merican brew. Entering the ring with a 7% alc. it's not the strongest out there but it does make for a good casual beer. When poured into a glass Racer 5 holds a good frothy head and at first taste I noted a hint of caramel on the front end that helps compliment the soft, bubbling suds. Though this beer is brewed with four different kinds of hops, it really isn't overly hoppy and really has a light malt undertone throughout. This is a good beer to enjoy with pizza or pasta and is a good IPA for those that don't like "punch you in the face" strong tastes.
