3.98/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: A very blond IPA, it’s a light golden color…head started thin and has quickly dissipated to a wispy nothing…it doesn’t even really liven up with a swirl…light for an IPA…(2.75/5)

Smell: Very light…yeast, lemon zest, honey, pine resin bitterness…malts have a light pale/earthy presence…the more I smell it, the more I get the light, refreshing citrus bitterness that I really like…as it warms, the piney sensation brings more of a bite and becomes the dominate aroma…nice…(3.75/5)

Taste: Yum! A really rich hop flavor happening here…piney resin galore, with a strong flavor of light pale malts…the hops profile is something that I’ve had (or close to) but the pale pale malts are a different twist that I really like…it’s rich and robust with a drinkability of a pale ale…I wouldn’t call this a white per se, I’m not getting that full yeasty flavor, but it’s one of the lighter IPA’s I’ve ever had…really good, a great twist on an overdone category…(4.25/5)

Mouthfeel: Light body, very light…carbonation is medium, fluff brings a grassy bitterness to the palate…the back and sides of my tongue are tingling, very bitter! There’s a malty bitterness lingering in the after taste…very balanced brew…(3.75/5)

Overall: This is a great brew…I was expecting something more Belgiany in flavor but this is not that…it’s got tons of hops and bitterness but is backed by a very drinkable malt profile that brings something totally different from what breweries are typically doing…this was a splurge purchase, at $3.75 a 12 ounce bottle, but it turned out totally worth it…I highly recommend giving this one a try if you’re a hop head like me or just like branching out to new things…I’m searching this one out again…(4/5)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Evil Twin Brewing - Falco IPA, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours a semi-cloudy yellow with a hint of amber and a soapy head that dissipates quick but retains some. Some lacing. Not the prettiest but I ate my words later on in the review.

Smell - Faint fruit hop aroma of pineapple/passion fruitish with some slight sweet malt. Aroma is generally light, at this point I was a bit concerned.

Taste - Hope hoppy citrus and pine blast here that I wasn't expecting and it was quite impressive. Zero malt influence here, nice and dry.

Mouthfeel - More light than medium. Dry and drinkable. Nice carbonated snap. Booziness is invisible.

Overall - From the appearance and aroma I was not excited but when it actually hit my lips I became a believer in this brew. Would recommend and would drink this one again for sure.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a thin collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderately strong aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with some hints of pine resin.
T: Flavors of citrusy hops—grapefruit and orange zest stand out in particular—dominate the taste and also contribute a moderate amount of bitterness. The citrusy flavors linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
O: This IPA was quite enjoyable and packed in a lot of flavors of grapefruit hops.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy light to medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some lemon + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a two finger tall medium sized cap in the center of the beer with a thick film surrounding it and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus hops (specifically I detect grapefruit, orange, and lemon) over some light pale and biscuit malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of pale and biscuit malts with just a hint of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, and citrus/lemon hops in descending order of strength. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness that fades pretty quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp with hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden - very enjoyable and one I would gladly have multiple of in a session. I thought the hop flavors and aromas were excellent and this is a real nice beer.
