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..

12 oz. bottle. Really nice. Mosaic hops to finish?

Pours pale gold, slight haze and small particulate. Hop material? Aroma is juicy pale malts, very fruity, some currant/cat pee, but not like Victory Mosaic Promise, which comes across as very catty. Good dose of citrus bouquet, not cry good, but time may have taken a toll, bottling mark is 227:14 09:04 Soft carbonation quick, simple sweetness at first, sweetness turns to supple malt character, cookie like, was this beer decocted? medium light body, velvety. medium finish, spice of hops remains on the tongue and out breath.

I'd defiantly drink a couple...

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.
