As there were two different glasses to "steal" from Eureka! today, I ordered a second beer by Hangar 24: the Betty IPA.

It definitely had an orange smell, an orange color, and little head. Similar to the nose, it had a good orange taste. In fact, it was the most refreshing citrus beer I've had in a while.

The beer left a nice lacing on the glass and overall has a lovely IPA taste. This is the best IPA I've had in a long time.

I'm on the BART now and it was a bit of a rushed drinking experience, but the aftertaste of the beer is that of an IPA with a brighter citrus flavor.

Furthermore, it was undoubtedly much more drinkable than the Barrel Roll No. 3. With that being said, the Barrel Roll No. 3 was drinkable compared to a bottle of Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA.

Betty is an American IPA boasting a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops. We spent 8 months perfecting this hop blend, and we love the huge range of juicy aromas and flavors we were able to hit: tropical fruit, citrus zest, berries, stone fruit and pine are all packed in, soaring over a base of pleasantly bitter 68 IBUs and drinkable 6.5% ABV. She pours a hazy orange-gold with a white frothy head, and marks the first addition to our Year-Round lineup of beers since Double IPA debuted in 2010.

Additional Information:

With Betty our goal was to brew the modern, American IPA that we'd want to drink ourselves, every day. If you ever had a pint of Experimental IPA in our Tasting Room, you were helping us build this beer, ever since we put the first batch on tap in May of 2013 at our Airfest and 5th Anniversary Celebration. We used that feedback from our fans and employees to help shape Betty.

The beer’s name pays homage to the pin-up art that adorned the planes of American B17 pilots during World War 2. These pilots would commission these fantastic works of art on the noses of their planes, and it serve as a daily reminder of the home they were fighting to protect.
