On tap at the Hangar 24 1st Anniversary party. Pours a dark hazy ruby color with a pinkish white fluffy head. Aroma is pure blood oranges and a touch of citrusy hops. Flavor is loads of citrus with a somewhat tame wheat background. Some alcohol is apparent but not as much as expected for a 9% wheat beer. Full bodied, but the healthy dose of carbonation makes it refreshing. Too bad we won’t be seeing more of this.

Had on draft for the Hangar 24 1 year anniversary party. Had a great time! Took a monster sized growler home of this to rate. It pours a golden grapefruit color with a very nice looking white head. The color is unlike any other beer I have seen. Aroma has hints of citrus and sweet orange zest. Very, very nice brew with a little tangy bitter finish. As Hophead22 mentions, very easy to drink for 9% alcohol.

From my growler. Pretty cool color, kind of a dark orange with a few drops of blood mixed in. Real good head retention, nice white head as well. Powerful orange aroma, you can really smell those blood oranges. More big orange in the flavor, but still really smooth and drinkable for 9%, it will put you on your ass if you’re not careful, much like the guy who fell out backwards out of the porta-john at the anniversary party.
