Pretty hoppy and, as the description says, high on the citrus scale. Head vanished quickly and carbonation felt a little light. Still tasted great. Pretty hoppy, dry finish. Nice beer that showcases the Columbus hops.

February 24th, 2013 - I absolutely love Hangar 24’s labels, which harken back to a period of incredible industrial achievement and progress centered in California - aeronautics in the sunny, orange fields of California. It’s such a captivating image that Disney Imagineers have taken it for their own, dotting California Adventure Park and even Tomorrowland with references to the collective genius that progressed air flight. Hangar has done well to take this image for their beers, but good label art deserves a beer to match. Today I test the Columbus IPA’s worthiness. Out of the bottle and the nice wrapping, it’s a murkier brown color, sunk under a light tan head, about a centimeter or two. A light but fresh scent of pine wafts from the foam, with the added touch of cinnamon sticks and light brown sugar, but overall very effete and ethereal. Likewise subtle is the flavor, with a good, hopped amber touch. The sugar is stronger here too, amplifying the cinnamon and sugar from the nose, adding a hoppy edge, and keeping low on the carbonation, producing a tasty, easy to drink beer that I’d say is definitely worthy of the label.

22 Fl OZ ($6.99) pretty good IPA, has a good bite to it, not a palate coater. good IPA if you’re not an IPA drinker. pretty decent at 7% abv. I liked it and I think you will like it too.

Not much going on. No real frsh hop aroma. Pretty cloudy. Just grapefruit hoppyness but nothing much else. Lean palate as well. Better out there.

Pours a hazy orange with a 1.5 finger head. Nice floral and citrus notes on the nose. Flavor matches aroma, and a bit of malty sweetness. Good IPA if you aren’t into overly bitter beers.

Flaske: Orangerød diset med et flot skumhoved. Duft af Lagunitas skulle jeg til at sige, men det er det jo ikke. Smagen sidder i skabet for en IPA. Lækker øl.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a white head. Sweet malty base, with some fruity citric hops and moderate bitterness. Balanced and drinkable, but nothing too special.

bomber pours orange amber, thin off white head whom’s lacing completely covers my cheater pint. Nose is subtle of citrus, some malt. Taste begins with light gentle malt sweetness. This is lightly washed away by some bitterness, oranges, tangerine. body is light to medium. Overall all pretty decent, a nice change of pace from some of the normal face melting bitter bombs.
