COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of the Quasquicentennial, or 125th Anniversary, of its hometown of Redlands, CA, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery has created the special Redlands 125th Red Ale to celebrate the milestone. The beer has a multi-faceted American hop aroma, coupled with a pleasant crystal malt balance.

“We are honored that city officials asked us to brew a special beer for Redlands 125th Anniversary,” said Hangar 24 owner and Master Brewer Ben Cook. “We thought it would be fitting to brew our first true Red Ale to celebrate the occasion. It was a lot of fun for the team to create this beer and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

The red, hoppy ale will be available only in the city of Redlands on draught and launches on June 14 at the Surfin’ State Street event. It will also be available at the June 22nd Redlands Wine and Music Festival, as well as the Redlands Food Truck Festival on June 29. The proceeds of these three events go to Redlands Community Foundation and Hangar 24 is donating the beer to the Surfin’ State Street and the Wine and Music Festival. Redlands 125th Red Ale will also be on tap at the Brewery’s Tasting Room, starting June 15, and at local accounts within the city limits that serve draught. Given the geographical limits to its distribution and not being available in bottles or cans, the only real way to drink Redlands 125th Red Ale outside of the city limits is to have a growler filled at the Brewery. “We brewed this beer so the people of Redlands would have a unique, locally brewed beer to enjoy as they celebrate their Anniversary,” said Cook.

Clear, medium amber/orange body with a very foamy light tan head. Initial aromas of charred malt/wood and light rubber mat. Nice full medium dark roasted malt flavor with a slight charred edge to it. Dry and lightly sweet with a very light molasses flavor. In that dryness is bitterness, but it’s hard to distinguish how much it dark roasted grain and how much is hops. Definitely a dry leaf, charred wood bitterness overall. That bitterness stays behind deliciously along with a bit of caramel sweetness. This reminds me (I think) of one of the first red ales I ever tried, Red Seal from North Coast, although it’s been so long I’d have to try it again to confirm. In any case, this is a very tasty red ale with lots of character which in my experience is often lacking in this category.

Deep amber. Aroma hoppy and malty...citrus pith, pine, earthy, caramel and light fruit. Fairly bitter and a touch sweet. Decent body for a red.

On tap at Hangar 24 Brewery in Redlands. Served in a pint glass, this brew had a nice reddish copper color with a thin white head. Aroma was citrus and fresh bread. Taste was a bit malty with a nice crisp citrus hop finish that left a little bitterness. Easy to drink red ale.
