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.

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.

On tap at the Reno Air Races

A: Pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy light tan that hangs around and laces quite nicely.

S: Sweet toasted malt and citrus hops.

T: Very nice citrus hops up front with grapefruit leading the way, a little pine and maybe some tropical fruit notes in there, backed with some caramel malt sweetness.

M: Pretty light body, light to moderate carbonation.

O: Hard to give this one a very detailed review out of a plastic cup, but it was a rather refreshing to drink in the sun while watching the racing action. Looking forward to trying this again to really see what's what.

Update: On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

In a more proper setting the smell and all the flavors are much more vibrant. There's a very nice grapefruit and floral hop bite with a little pineapple and miscellaneous tropical fruit mixed in as well, all balanced with malt sweetness, and with a nice lingering bitterness. Very solid brew.
