Growler from Glenville Beverage in Scocia NY, poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. Liquid portion comes out lighter than I expected. Straw yellow colored with excellent clarity because it's so light. Nice big head, almost soapy but more smaller bubbles than anything else, really good lacing though. If the head wasn't so nice It would almost look like a BMC regular line up product. Overall a pretty good looking beer.
Smell is really good, nice strong citrus hoppy IPA. Grapefruit, lemon zest/peel, and not quite ripe tangerine citrus aromas. In addition to the citrus there is a slight bready/yeast smell that's a little light and sweet. Smells good and tickles your nose quite nicely.
Taste is on par with the smell. Maybe a little bit sweeter from the caramel malt, a weak toasty flavor from the malted barley. The hoppy part is the best part and fortunately it's hoppy. Penty of the above citrus flavors with maybe the addition of some sappy pine.
Mouthfeel is good, it's very light considering the full amount of flavor, and yet complex. Starts light and smooth but if you let it warm up it actually gets a little buttery. Really good carbonation level and super drinkable. Another solid brew from Evil Twin.
My wife and I found out we'll actually be having twins, so if one of them tends to act up in the future, I guess his/her nickname will have to be Falco.

I'd not seen this one until tonight's visit to The Ginger Man. Beers here vary by the day sometimes! According to the barkeep, they just got it in yesterday.
Evil Twin Falco IPA is an excellent, well rounded beer. Faint haze when held to the light, strong citrus and especially grapefruit and just a tang of pine resin, very nice. Not quite like my memories of chewing on that #2 cedar pencil when I was a kid, but made me smile nonetheless.
Fruity-ish but bitter all the way though. Excellent nose. Effervescent but not overly carbonated. Continue to emit streams of bubbles even after several minutes.
Lacy white head, slowly diminishes but still hanging around after 5 minutes of drinking.
Will have to make a trip to Connecticut - didn't know that there was such an excellent beer! Kudos!

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, goldenrod coloring with a low profile, filmy, bright white head that clings all over the glass. Aromas of toasted grains, lemon, pine tassels, and floral and spice highlights. Very mild but full nose, very inviting and balanced. Flavors are toasted and bitter forward, with a green feel all around. Piney notes, grass, and peppery spices, with a biscuit backbone and a lemony highlight. You get a solid, woodsy feel the entire time you drink this beer, but the citrus notes highlight it very well, keeping it light and crisp. The body helps accentuate that characteristic, as well, remaining light and smooth. Piney and citrusy aftertaste, with a sharp, tart, and slightly drying finish. Solid, refreshing brew.
