COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced and Resinous. Midwestern malted barley provides a pedestal for you to experience the flavor and aroma of the citrusy Northwestern hops which are the showcase of Hangar 24’s version of a true classic. An American Pale Ale. Additional Information: What makes Hangar 24 Pale Ale special is its smoothness. Carefully selected hops added at just the right times during the brewing process, including post fermentation, give a deep hop flavor without the coarse bitterness that some associate with pale ale.

On tap at the brewery: Pours a transparent deep golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a nice fresh grapefruity hoppy nose with some soft pale malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and light maltiness with good fresh hop presence before a crisp resiny finish. A nice APA.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Hazy golden, very orange and dirty, fine sediment floats about, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Musty candied citrus peel nose, pale hops.   On the tongue its a little musty/barnish.   Not real bright, hops are subtle.   Tiz clean, but not as hoppy as I would have liked.   I did sit on this bottle for a while, so no doubt it has mellowed.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish feels musty, a little over the hill.   That aroma just encapsulates me, just this candied citrus peel makes me want something sugary sweet.   Perhaps a little over the hill, but still clean and enjoyable.   Thanks Tim!
