The Friday beer: Bear Republic Brewing’s Racer 5 IPA
All along the West Coast, from Victoria, B.C., to San Diego, Calif., you can find not just good but great beer. We are lucky. The Racer 5 India Pale Ale is another fine IPA from Northern California available locally.
It has a wonderful hoppy flavor with hints of citrus and a bit of pineapple. This is one you can find on tap and in a bottle if you happen to have a good beer retailer in your town. Good beer stores are another thing in high supply along the west coast. Lucky indeed!
