Pours hazy copper from the bottle into a Ball jar. Very floral scent, I suspect it is dry hopped. Frothy white head is inviting. Soft easy going mouth feel, pleasant bitterness, much citrus. A straight forward well crafted IPA that I would be happy with any time.

Great looking beer. The appearance is what I love to see in my IPAs. Bright hazy orange/golden color with white frothy head. The aroma and taste are a pop of big citrus notes with some tropical and dank flavors, but most just an orange citrus bomb. Body is pretty light with a good amount of carbonation. Beer finished pretty dry with some lingering bitterness.

Overall - my favorite non barrel aged offering from hanger 24 and love that it comes in six packs. Had a good amount of hop flavor but balanced enough to be very drinkable.

Now if hanger 24 would bottle date their beers I would reach for this more often.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours semi-hazy and golden in color with an off-white finger width head that exhibits fair retention before dying down to a thin layer of suds across the surface and a decent ring around the edge. small, spotty lacing with fair stick.

Smell - Aroma is quite the fruity bouquet with peach, orange, pineapple and grapefruit notes abound. Sweet, bready undertone. Hints of peppery spice.

Taste - Less profound than the nose, though not by much. Grapefruit, stone fruit pit and orange are the main flavors here, with hints of pineapple. Light, bready malts do just enough to add a bit of balance. Touches of black pepper and pine resin hits toward the finish, then a light pith aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat silky before a semi-dry finish.

Overall - A bit underwhelming in flavor when it was still cold, but it opened up beautifully as it warmed. A really good IPA. A bit reminiscent of Drake's core "pale" line-up with that dry stone fruit pit character. I believe I paid less than $4 for this at Winco? Will likely buy again.

Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is full of lemon, pine, grapefruit, pineapple and mango. Incredible.
The taste mirrors the smell; lots of pine and citrus bitterness, finishes with a semi-harsh bitter note.
The texture is crisp.
Excellent all around.

love this easy drinking, yet highly satisfying ipa from hangar 24. my favorite product from them thus far. nice orange-amber color with a fluffy head; decent head retention and lacing remain in the glass. big tropical fruit nose coupled with just a pinch of citrus zest equates a happy drinker in me. doesn't taste boozy, nor does it leave me overly intoxicated after a few bottles. medium mouthfeel and drier finish compliment the hop qualities in this decidedly west coast ipa.

A: Nice little dark orange hazy shades. The head is off egg shell white and very fluffy. Leaves nice lacing on the glass too.

S: Get a little piney bitterness, citrus/tropical/stone fruits, and a bit earthy.

T: Good earthy pine notes with some juicy fruits. A little bitter biased, but the fruit do have their place and they stand strong.

M: Pretty solid medium body leaning towards full. Smooth carbonation hit making it very drinkable. Finishes a bit dry, but man does it make you want more in a good way.

O: Really solid brew. Only got a bottle of it, but would definitely get a pack for warmer days that are coming here in Nevada.
