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!

Such an excellent beer. Lordy Poured this a touch warm, but that hurt it not. Has a large, foamy, frothy, sudsy, off-white head that settled to a thin, spotty cover after a bit and lots of lace. Color is a very slightly hazy pale gold yellow with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is very aromatic, was apparent upon bottle opening, is more resin than grapefruit with enough malt to balance and round it out. Flavor's like nose, has just enough sweetness to temper the heady bitterness. Body/carbonation are great plus it has some chewiness that I really like. Finish is like flavor, stays true all the way slowly tapers. Killer beer..

Cloudy yellowish hue, 1 finger bone white head that reduces to a permanent cap in a few minutes, lots & lots of tiny bubbles, impressive lacing.
Grapefruit, pineapple & pine needles greet your nostrils,hop forward, malt practically nonexistent.
Falco delivers a tasty & crisp grapefruit/pineapple/pine blast. Absolutely hop forward in a citrus manner, good bitterness & aftertaste, nice dry finish.
Mouthfeel is medium, prickly carbonation,smooth easy drinking IPA that hides the alcohol very nicely.
An under the radar IPA that deserves much more attention & higher ratings. Falco is not inexpensive @ $10.99/4 pack, yet it has a lot going for it if you prefer hops over malt with a dry, crisp finish. Highly recommended and a pleasant surprise.

beautiful poor from the bottle to a pint glass, let sit 5 mins out of fridge before opening. the head was a nice off white and about 1.5 inches think, good retention and now has some nice lacing around the top of the liquid.
smells like a killer ipa, pine and resin, with a hint of citrus.
taste is very hoppy upfront, but not over powering, very balanced pine, resin, and citrus peel.
pleasantly carbonated and very light feeling on the tongue. it is coarse but very mildly so.
overall this is a great beer. i'm surprised it doesn't have a higher rating. this was was bought at beirkraft in brooklyn and is from the newer evil twin brewery in ct. i will definitely be getting this again.

Had on tap at Avenue Pub New Orleans. Served in a cask glass.
A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/4 inch head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing cascades slowly down the glass.
S- Nice blend of pine/citrus with the earthiness actually pretty toned down for an Evil Twin IPA.
T- Assertively bitter with some trailing fruitiness from the hops. The bitterness lingers good and long without letting up much. This is a good thing though since the hop flavors are pronounced enough to not make it a full-on alpha acid bomb. Smooth for the ABV. There is a faint metallic bite due to the extreme bitterness but is easily overlooked.
M- Again, bitey and sharp with not much restraint but nice all the same. Medium carbonation and a lighter body.
O- Quite satisfied from this Evil Twin offering. It is on that borderline of being too bitter but walks the line well.
