Episode #202: Bear Republic Cafe Racer 15

Cafe Racer 15 is Bear Republic’s highly rated Double IPA. Until recently, it was only available on draft. On a recent trip out of town, I came across this beer, and wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

  1. From "Kevin LeBlanc" :

    I had this on tap in Baltimore and thought it was great. My experience is different from yours in that I live in Lafayette, La where craft beer is just starting to catch on so I don’t get a chance to try very many fresh double ipa’s. So for me this was a new experience and I enjoyed it very much. I can see where if you are able to sample many different types anytime that they could seem to start being all sorta the same.
