Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, earthy and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very drinkable beer and my expectations where exceeded.

Bottle cheers to Colin. Finally a Hangar beer! Pours orange with a small, white head leaving great lacing. Nose is quite danky, blood orange, tangy lemon, spice, fairly tropical - passionfruit, tangerine. A hint of booze. Very juicy tropical fruits in the taste - mango, apricot, mandarin. Some grassy hops and a good dose of fruity sweetness. Nice stuff

22oz bomber with a pale orange pour, minimal head with some lacing. Grapefruit nose mixed with pine and some fruit in the background. Grapefruit flavors match up against the fruity malts, followed by big bitterness. Has a spicy finish.

Good IPA's Stone, Firestone being among favorites. This beer the Double IPA is worth a try. Little more grapefruit maybe for some yet with a high octane count. Very, very nice.
