Bear Republic Cafe Racer 15 bombers

Bear Republic bottled Cafe Racer 15 this year; according to my server bottles should hit shelves any day now if they haven't already.

The beer was pouring beautifully at the pub this weekend- hop heads should seek it out.

      It's lighter in color, better-balanced than Racer X, with more citrusy hop flavors. While I find Racer X shows it's high ABV on the palate, Racer 15 does not, despite being stronger at 9.75% ABV.
