3.48/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Great, shiny copper tone settles into the glass. Carbonation city feeds a finger-width cream head, really fluffy at first, but it dissipates a smidgen. There’s a thin haziness about the look, but it’s a perfectly fine-looking brew.

SMELL: The scent isn’t very strong, but it’s certainly welcoming. Nice, bready malts compliment a stronger, citrusy scent. Undertones of grass round it off. Not bad, but really really mild.

TASTE/MOUTHFEEL: Wow… the first word that comes to my mind is bitter. Usually the hops attack me at the finish when it comes to IPAs, but this one starts off bitter and lingers the whole way through. Medium body tingles from the aforementioned carbonation. Letting the ale linger for a bit boasts a combination of grassy, floral tones with hardly any malt character to speak of. A nice kick of grapefruit kisses the tip of my tongue. Mellows out a good deal as it warms, thankfully. Pretty aggressive, but I can still taste the bitterness long after I take a sip, which is a bit much.

OVERALL/NOTES: This is my first go with Hangar 24, and the first word that comes to mind is ‘decent.’ Maybe I jumped the gun on opening it, because it became much more enjoyable after about fifteen minutes of sitting there. Will revisit this brewery in the future.

4.94/5  rDev +39.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Big notes of citrus, pine and orange juice like smells. A very crisp and scrub the tongue bitterness washes over my taste buds with spicyness and orange like flavors come out. Tropical fruit flavors in taste as well. What a great flavor this one has even better than the aroma which is great as well.

For a single hop beer the complexity is blowing me away. If they didn't say single hop I'd never tell the difference. It makes me want to brew with Columbus hops because of the bitter and very flavorful qualities this certain strain gives. Very impressed with this one.

3.39/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out of a 22oz bottle, the beers appearance is a copper orange color with a decent amount of foam a top this decent brew. The aroma is a bit dank but the citrus aroma are a bit faint for a west coast IPA. The taste is surprising give the weak aroma, but the citrus lacking in the aroma is a bit more present in the taste. Also present in the taste are grassy notes, maltiniess, bitter hops, and a stong medium body backbone. Overall this is a good, above average IPA, with some good tast characteristics but missing a bit in the aroma and wow factors that separate good beers from great beers.
