Maybe I would have liked it more if I had never heard of it before. I think I liked the Ballast Point Big Eye IPA better.
It's pretty possible that Racer 5 may not have been fresh? I've had a few in my day that were a bit off. Even though they're not over aggressively hopped, something goes wrong in that beer if they're not fresh. Maybe give it another try if you can.
