Top 10 Craft Beers
Named in honor of the aircraft hangar where founder Ben Cook and his buddies would sample his beers after flying, Hangar 24 Brewery has distinguished itself for its use of locally sourced ingredients.
In the case of this copper-hued West Coast IPA, the recipe includes navel oranges, blood oranges and grapefruit, all of which are grown in Hangar 24's hometown of Redlands, California. Grapefruit is most prevalent in the aroma and citrus takes center stage in the flavor, which is further enhanced by Cascade and Zythos hops. While the orange blast is intense, it's also quite refreshing on a hot summer day. This beer debuted in June 2015 and was the brewery's third release in its Local Fields Series. Other Hangar 24 brews spotlighting California-grown fruit include its newly released Polycot, a wheat beer brewed with fresh apricots; and its flagship Orange Wheat, made with locally grown oranges.
