This pours with an orange-tan-straw color along with nice foam. Visually appealing. Big citrusy aroma with some lemony notes. Flavor has a pleasing upfront bittering. I enjoyed the light lemon peel and touch of pine on the finish. Easy drinking and tasty.

A - pours a murky cloudy copper color. A rigorous pour yields a billowing white head of foam which quickly dissipates leaving some spotty lacing against the glass.

S - nose is subtle and rather muted overall but becomes much more potent as it warms. The hop character is floral and spicy with a touch of green leaves. While the powerful malt profile lends cereal grains and hints of caramel and toffee.

T - the flavors are surprisingly soft. A grainy bread backbone with a hint of gooey caramel on the front. Bright and biting citric notes in the middle. mostly grapefruit and bitter orange peel. Finish is toasty with a bit of sweetness which lingers with the citrus character.

M - silky smooth mouthfeel. inbetween medium and full bodied. medium carbonation.

O - I wish the nose was a bit more expressive but other than that it is quite a pleasant IPA. Something I would like to try again if the chance would arise.

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.

I had this at the November Baltimore Area BA tasting. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: The beer pours a very cloudy amber color with a layer of off white head that sticks around fairly well.

Smell: The smell is quite mild, especially for an IPA. I'm getting some juicy citrus hops with a light malt component, but not super interesting.

Taste: The hops dominate, but I would say that the flavor isn't crisp. Perhaps a bit muddles. There is enough malt to back up the bitter hops. The finish is hoppy and bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was an alright IPA. Nothing made this beer stand out. I wouldn't try to hard to find more in the future.

pour is a cloudy copper orange with large bubbles in a light tan head. Nose is biscuit malt, rye and caramel with piney bitter hops behind. Taste follows suit but a more expressive hop sensation adds to the finish and short lingering bitterness along with a smooth body and soft carbonation make it fall down the throat quite easily. Also light notes of citric acid in back behind the cascading malt forefront.

Clear orange colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smell is sweet and hoppy with a citrus rind aroma. There is a slight cinnamon stick and cedar wood scent to this one.

Starts out bittersweet. Bitter and woody with a significant onion taste. Taste doesn't deliver, just woody and bitter with lots of astringency and that onion after taste.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a disappointment. Needs to lose the onion and wood and dry hop more.

Pours a copper gold hue with a good amount of haze from the settled yest. Nice off white head, two fingers high and leaves some nice lacing on the glass even though the retention is sub par.

Very floral ipa, robust pineapple and dark citrus notes. Steady backing of caramel malts that gets a little dank and musty from the yeast on the back end.

Pale and bready malts with a decent does of pine hop character. Quickly the drink turns musty and dank as the finish is dominated with a herbal vegetative quality that coats your mouth and supplies a dull bitterness. Dries well, appropriate malt but the hop flavor is harsh compared to nose.

Medium heavy body with settled yeast. Average to below average carbonation. Dries very well but the dull and dank hops throws off the quality. Very hard to finish the bottle.

Ho hum it's another IPA, decent nose, probably the most pineapple forward that I've ever smelt but nothing else to write home about. Hop flavors are piney and dank, body is sluggish, better to share the bottle.
