Featured Review – Fastback Racer from Bear Republic

Bear Republic has added to their Racer series with a new car style, so to speak, Fastback Racer DIPA.

The beer pours a pretty bright and orange and clear. Lovely bit of foam on the top with nice bubbling to it. A cross of pine and orange peel greets the nose as I stick it into that foam. This really tastes strong and I would classify it as a triple or Imperial. I mean 10.4%! That strength comes through in the flavor. Everything else comes in behind that power which makes it a bit of a disappointment, I guess. Citrus is peeking out here and there but not very often. It makes the beer a bit one dimensional.
