look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz. bottle to standard pint glass
Bottled Aug – 2012
A: The Flaconers IPA pours a light caramel amber color with some haziness to it and a good half finger of khaki tan head. There is some ample hang time and a bit of wavy cling down the glass.
S: Smells of gooseberry, melon, peach, and some lemon zest. Hops are pungent with a bit pine and some catty musk. I get undercurrents of some caramelized malt sugars and a warm breadiness. Real pleasant and unexpected hop aromas here.
T: Tastes pop with some real hoppy goodness. More gooseberry. The Citra really delivers out of the Falconer’s blend. Melon, pine, citrus fruits, and a touch of some exotic flora. There is a dash of caramel sweetness and a bit of bready malt base to carry an upper level of bitterness. Has a nice puckering bite. Alcohol is well masked with just a slight warming sensation added. A very nice surprise.
M: There a relatively light to moderate feel with a somewhat creamy texture. Nice bitter bite and crisp factor from the carbonation. Finishes on the wet side.
D: This was surprisingly good for the deal you get out of purchasing a case. Very drinkable with a great hoppy punch and some nice fruity flavors.
Felt like drinking a subpar Sculpin…which is still quite good. Would definitely pick up again.

Poured froma standard pressure-cap bomber into a conic pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Three-finger thick white head with a minute-long head and large bubbles. Trace lacing goes up high. Amber color with high clarity. Fine looking beer.
S- Some pine and citrus. Hops and slightly warm and sugary.
T- Warm flavor with bitter, piney hops.
M- Buttery, smooth medium bodied beer. Fairly wet finish.
O- Excellent, piney IPA.
