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 24ís 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.

Another from Hophead22, thanks again! Pours a clear golden-orange color with an inch thick, fluffy off-white head that slowly receded and left some rings of lacing. Aroma of floral, resinous hops with some light hints of soft citrus (orange, tangerine) complimented with a touch of faint caramel. A lightly sweet entry quickly gives way to a crisp, dry floral hoppiness that presents some light, spicy pine notes that are paired with some soft citrus notes that linger into the moderately dry finish. Moderate carbonation and crisp bite on the palate. Overall, a simple, enjoyable pale ale that is probably better than the score I am giving it because I didnít drink this bottle sooner. I will have to try to get a fresher bottle and re-rate.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Bottle thanks to DuffManSW. Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, frothy white head. Biscuit, bread, a light caramel notes come out in the aroma with a light balance of citrus and pine. Definitely more malt forward in the flavor too. Thereís lots of biscuit and graham cracker with moderate hop bitterness and just a hint of phenol pepperiness. Thin body with lots of tingly carbonation.

dogfish120love (880) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Pours golden with an orange tint, somewhat medium sized white head. Smells significantly of pine, followed by some citrus, grass and floral aromas, but predominantly pine. Flavor is heavily consistant with taste, pine dominates the other flavors at an unusual level. Usually citrus and grapefruit overtake pine in my opinion, but this is different in a good way. This may not be a favorite but I canít help but love how this beer seprates and differentiates itself from the pack. Slightly over-carbonated.

Barreras (854) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours a yellow with an almost neon yellow tint to it. Aroma of malted hops and corn. Taste is simple with a mild hop aftertaste. A slight metallic taste after the swallow. A mild pale ale that was not complex.

Golden color with a nice white foam. Aroma is citrus and melon. Light body. A little bitter for a pale. Grapefruit and orange with little malt sweetness. Overall not bad.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $13.97 (with VONS card) for a variety 12-pack Purchased: June 1, 2013 Consumed: June 1, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a copper orange, rather clear color with about four fingers of frothy white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Lots of thick sporadic foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great thick and foamy retention all the way down. Initially smelled a mixture of orange , tangerine and lemon. Also butter, wheat, grass, honey and floral notes. Taste wasnít quite like the nose. Seemed to taste bitter coffee notes. Some citrus notes (orange, faint grapefruit, lemon), pale ale notes (grainy grass, honey, wheat) and buttery malts. Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, abrupt finish. Just didnít like this beer. Not happy that I have three more in my variety 12-pack.

Pours a amber orange with a small off white with a little lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, bready malts, citrus (grapefruit & orange) and a little pine. Taste is well balanced with toasted and bready malts, grapefruit & orange, some pine, and a little fruitiness. Has a medium-light body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a dry, well balaced moderate finish. Overall, a pretty decent pale that might be a little thin but is still tasty and refreshing.

Piney, catty aromas from a medium yellow body with a thin white head. Nice clean malt taste with balanced light hop bitterness which isnít as strong as the aromas seemed to suggest. Finishes clean and slight sweet with an orange/citrus aftertaste. Easy drinking but tasty and interesting too.
