Served on-draught into a half pint glass at Hangar 24. 7.8% ABV. Cost was $4.00. Reviewed from notes taken in late 2012.

A: Pours no head at all. Body colour is a vibrant copper-auburn. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Blood orange, nectarine, fruit, and clean biscuit malt. An average strength aroma.

T: Luscious blood orange fruit, nectary notes, tangerine, and complementary floral hops. Pale biscuit malt. Simple but quite enjoyable. Refreshing and balanced.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and luscious. Enjoyable. Good carbonation and thickness.

Dr: Quite drinkable and enjoyable. Hides its ABV well. I like it. A surprisingly tasty winter warmer from Hangar 24. Its simplicity does hold it back, however.

This "spiced strong ale" is truly bizarre. I can only think of the descriptions of pre-war English candies in "Gravity's Rainbow." Distinct touch of pickled goose berries. Sweet and sour mushrooms. Candied crab apples with a dose of quinine.

You can't ignore the taste of plastic or the scent of burning sterno. Horse blankets in the nose. It looks innocent enough, with the light amber color and decent head. Overall, it's disgusting, but in an interesting way. Hangar 24 seems to be without any shame in the crazy stuff they put on the market.

On tap at KNB in San Diego. From notes of March 10, 2012 visit.

On tap at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium roasty and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer but I am not getting any spice or maple aromas or flavors from this one.
