Falconers IPA pours a golden color, with a nice creamy long lasting lacing head. There is a sweet malty aroma. The taste is lighter, a sweeter floral, a wet malty aftertaste. A bit of a sweet mess, but noticeable flavors. Overall its a sweet malty based IPA.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 4, 2013.

The pour is a slight cloudy amber-copper with a small head that fades down quickly to a lingering ring.

The nose has some roasted pale malts and caramel malts with a mellower earthy hop aroma.

The body is relatively smooth and in the medium range.

The taste has an abundance of sweet caramel up front with a kind of butter flavoring and it ends with a moderate hop bitterness.

Picked up a single at Total Wine in late April for $1.49. Bottled on 8-6-12 - Say what? Oh well, it won't be the freshest.

Beer poured a cloudy orange with a smallish off white head.

Nose is very citrusy for an IPA this age.

Taste initially was very well balanced between the sweet caramel malts and citrusy hops. But as i continue to sip the finish is becoming more piney.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, moderately carbonated and satisfying.

Overall i like this brew. It was certainly better fresh...i will need to look for a fresher version and review again. Another nice Rotator series brew.
