(REDLANDS, CA) – A brand new India Pale Ale is set to join the Hangar 24 Craft Brewery lineup as the 9th Anniversary Hazy IPA will be introduced Saturday (May 20) at the Hangar 24 AirFest and 9th Anniversary Celebration. The 9th Anniversary Hazy IPA joins an eclectic group of anniversary ales of the past. It is the second consecutive year an IPA will be the anniversary beer, following the 8th Anniversary Citra IPA from last year. That offering was a silver medal winner at the 2016 California State Fair Beer Competition.
The 9th Anniversary Hazy IPA is patterned after the increasingly popular New England IPAs. The Hangar 24 version is golden straw in color with a cloudy/hazy appearance and its aroma has notes of pineapple, guava and citrus. This juicy hop bomb imparts flavors of mandarin, peach, mango, with slight spice and a slight bitter finish.
The new 9th Anniversary Hazy IPA will be one of at least 35 Hangar 24 Craft Brewery offerings poured throughout the day during the 9thAnniversary Celebration. The list includes multiple variants of the highly rated and award winning Pugachev’s Cobra Russian Imperial Stout, aged in bourbon barrels. Those options join year-round favorites like Orange Wheat, Betty IPA, Easy Glider Session IPA, Iconic Double IPA and the brand new blonde ale, and namesake offering, “24.”
