look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pour is a nice dark orange with two fingers of head.

Had this at Red Table in Huntington Beach after a terrible IPA to start the night off. I've never been impressed by any of Hangar's IPAs before, but this is an exception. Reminds me of Sculpin many years ago and Double Sunshine minus.

They just got the keg in so it was ridiculously fresh, but damn I was impressed. I'm going to buy a bottle to compare but this will definately get me thinking about this brewery in the IPA game. Didn't taste huge malt like the heavy backbone their IIPA has.

Great job, need to see more.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

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.

Pours a hazy golden orange color frothy white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of bright hops with citrus and tropical fruits.

Tastes of the bright hops with a solid malt base. A multitude of hops come through with grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and pine notes. Not particularly bitter as the malts make their presence felt by adding some caramel notes . Finishes with a small piny bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a tasty IPA and definitely worth a look.

On tap at The Playground in Downtown Santa Ana, CA.

Hangar 24 Betty and the Raul man is feeling it like Betty Grable. Now, it may not be as swanky and robust, but it's aite enough. A smooth bitterness it met by delicate hops that make Raul wish it was the golden era again.
