Didn't know what to expect. Hadn't drunk many Crooked Tree beers. My expectations were high at the thought of falconers flight hops. Serious let down in all categories. It started with a cloudy pour...Quickly disappearing foam...Washed out malt aroma...No outstanding taste to differentiate the f.f. hops from all others except for the lingering bitter aftertaste...average mouthfeel...Overall, I wouldn't recommend this. Must be me.

Poured from a bottle, guessing this is about a month old.

Appearance: Very similar to other Crooked Tree/Dekoorc Eert beers. Golden amber, hazy, clearly unfiltered. Head foams out in under a minute.

Smell: Whoa. Very, very vegetal. Burnt toast. Dirty socks. A little unsettling, actually.

Taste: None of the trademark FF flavors- a tiny hint of citrus followed by dirty cotton and old cheese. Not sure how this beer got so funky at 1-2 months old. A very distinct sharp cheddar finish.

Mouthfeel: Same as the other beers in the series. Hard to focus on the mouthfeel with this one, to be honest. Probably the highlight of the beer.

Overall: I feel like I must have gotten a bad bottle. The risks of unpasteurized/unfiltered IPA's mean that you can't guarantee consistency. Because FF is a blend, I suppose that any bad hop in the blend could set off the whole batch.

2.89/5  rDev -23.3%

Appearance: The same hazyish copper-infused dark gold as I would expect. Head is white, small, wispy, and leaves a thin collar with splotches and notches of lacing. Moderate carbonation.

Smell: Mild biscuit and caramel malts. Vaguely toasted and earthy. Hops run a bit mellower than other iterations. A bit of woody, slightly earthy hops, but it's subtle. Warming brings a bit more of the wood aroma out. A bit of citrus.

Taste: Minor toasted element coupled with something that almost tastes a little acetic. Woody with a backing earthy and herbal element. Some bready elements with a minor caramel malt sweetness. A slight spiciness from the hops as well. Seems like a mellower version...somehow.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Par for the course.

Overall: Fly closer to the sun Icarus.

The weakest of the set. Seems to be a milder form of the base beer. Lacks any kind of distinguishing profile. It drinks like a slightly hoppy pale ale instead of the IPA it's supposed to be. A bit of a let down ultimately. Not bad, but not on par with the rest of the pack.

3.2/5  rDev -15.1%

A: Dark orange/copper. Very cloudy, non filtered IPA. Small white bubbly head. Decent lacing.

S: Not much in the nose. Very muted. What is there is a bit of lemon, grapefruit, maybe a hint of pine and some carmel malt.

T: Kind of follows the smell, pretty boring and not much going on. Some earthy and slight citrus hops. bit of a peppery/spice kick to the hops as well. Some carmel malts are definitely detectable. Mild to medium hop bitterness.

M: Medium body, average carbonation. A bit slick feeling.

O: Good drinkability. Having had all of three of these once now, I think this may be my least favorite, will have to formally review the other two in the next few days. This one is a miss in my book, must be the Falconers Flight hops that I'm not digging.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for giving me this beer

Appearance: Hazy, lightly cloudy copper, with some orange and gold highlights - small, off-white head, retains a small cap, leaves some streaks of lacing

Smell: Mild, fruity hops and the typical (typically good) Crooked Tree malt profile - the hop profile is pretty strange, but I guess that might be because I've never had any experience with Falconer's Flight hops - citrus, lemon, and onion, not particularly aggressive - caramel and pale malts, with some grainy sweetness

Taste: Remarkably strange - oily grapefruit and orange rinds, with some bitter lemon zest, and something sharp like an onion - a number of herbal, floral, and earthy notes - not particularly good, honestly - decent malts, pale and caramel - light sweetness, with an earthiness that combines with the hops

Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation, some residual stickiness

Overall: FF? This is not my favorite iteration of Final Fantasy

This isn't bad, but I think it's the weakest of the single hop Crooked Tree variations. Falconer's Flight seems like it has some potential, but apparently not as the lone hop variety. Meh.
