A - Pours a cloudy light orange with a two-finger foamy white head. Head forms nice sticky lacing.

S - Sweet and fruity. Aromas of orange, peach, straw, and pine.

T - Taste follows the aroma. Big amount of sweet citrus upfront - orange and peach - followed by piney floral hops. Finish has a nice amount of bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp mouthfeel.

O - This was a pleasant suprise. Nice mix of fruit and pine. Very easy drinking IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled 4/??/14, poured into tulip; foggy-clear light gold in color with a solid white head that descends leaving nice slick lacing.
Smell is a bit weak but is very good and interesting. Pine and citrus, with lesser notes of sweet fruit, like peach and others. An interesting twist on the usual.
Taste follows nose very well. Big wallop of citrus and pine that suddenly then moves into soft, sweet flavors of tangerine and peach as it fades, leaving some bittersweet lingering flavors.
Mouthfeel is medium-light and slick.
Overall, this is a very tasty IPA with a unique flavor. Definitely one of the better light-colored Evil Twin beers I've had so far.

3.83/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 3/06/14 and poured 6/03/14. This beer is just about at my threshold for an IPA's age. $2.99 single.

Appearance: Hazy light amber color with about three fingers of basically white, soapy head that stays awhile. Some patchy lacing. Pretty nice.

Smell: Safe bet that this is a little past its prime. The first thing I notice is a sweet and slightly fruity from the hops malt aroma. Falco has a pretty significant, what I'd say, orange and peach marmalade sort of aroma over more traditional IPA smells such as pine, herbs, or tropical fruit. I'd really like to smell it fresh.

Taste/feel: Moderate feel all around with a solid body and a moderate sort of carbonation. The orange and especially peach sort of aroma carries over to the taste quite a bit. Both of those flavors hit pretty big before there's an herbal/pine sort of hop bitterness that comes through on the finish and lingers quite a bit. There's a pretty decently big bitterness on Falco overall.

Overall, I'm a bit let down. I can appreciate the not-often-tasted-in-an-IPA peach and orange flavors I'm picking up in this beer, but it's missing something I can't quite pinpoint (probably the fact it's not exactly a fresh bottle). It's a tasty beer that does what an IPA should do, but it's just not "bursting" like I want it to, and at $3 a single, I'd expect something a bit better than this. Regardless, I recommend it -- especially if you like peachy/orange sorts of flavors in your IPA.
