Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a pale yellow. Good head/lacing.

Smell is creamy- creme brulee, melons. Honey, honeydew, toffee apple. Quite a bit of ethanol which is disappointing for a beer of only 7% ABV. Little bit of plastic.

Taste is more melons- quite strong, chemical bitterness, iso-hop-py.

Mouthfeel simply has too much chemical bitterness.

Not a good beer. Limited hop aromatics, too much ethanol, too much raw unpleasant hopping on the palate.

Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops,
I'm movin' to the country, gonna drink me a lot of hops,
Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops,
Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops.
Hops come, in a can,
They were put there by a man,
In a factory downtown.
And if I had my little way, I'd drink hops everyday,
Some suckin' bitterness in the shade.

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

12oz bottle poured into an Evil Twin pint glass.

Hazy bright gold hue with lots of sediment floating around, decent white foamy head builds up with good retention before slowly subsiding to some bubble sheet atop along with lots of sticky lacing patch and spot, high carbonation.

Very fruity and hoppy with aromas of grapefruit, lemon, tropical fruit, some pine, grass and resin while malt with caramel and bready notes.

Malt acts as a foundation of flavor with breadiness and caramelized sweetness, hop with a grapefruit led and then piney, resiny, some grassy and persistent bitterness at the end. Alcohol slightly appeared when warm.

Medium body with smooth mouthfeel and lively carbonation generated crisp and refreshing feel through the palate, dry finish. Still another good offering from Evil Twin, good American IPA.

16 oz. can Batch #030

Pours golden yellow with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells like pineapple, guava, passionfruit, grapefruit, orange, papaya, honey crackery caramel malt, with floral earthy minty herbal spicy grassy pine. Tastes like creamy honey crackery caramel malt, pineapple, guava, passionfruit, zesty orange and grapefruit citrus, papaya, with bitter floral earthy minty herbaceous spicy grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, slick with low carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.

Bottled on 4/16/13.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lemon yellow color with just a great looking firm one finger head just doesn't dissapate,not a fan of the color but a big fan of the pillow-like head.Big citrusy hops jump out in the nose along with some pine underneath,not much malt presence except for mild toastiness.If you like grapefruit and bitterness this your kinda ipa,I love it,intesnse grapefruit juice flavors and some stickiness to go along with some lighter pine resin,again just a faint drier malt presence.I haven't had an in your face sharp hop bomb in awhile and for me this fits the bill.Excellent...in my opinion.

Fruity, Piney, Biscuity, Dry

Bright, pale gold with a mountainous foam head, this IPA from Evil Twin is fruity, grassy, bready, zesty and earthy in the nose. It’s crisp and dry with an assertive hop profile that's fruity (orange, apple, melon, pear), piney, resinous and floral with an astringent bitterness. Sweet, biscuity malts provide ample balance though, while an aspirin-like chalkiness dries things up in the finish. Aggressive, but balanced, Falco is simply delicious.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #105 (October 2015).

16 oz can. Pours clear gold with some very fine floaties and a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet sugary bready malt with some funky fruit.

The flavor is sweet sugary bready crystal malt with ripe fruit and a big grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, very sweet, sugary, under-attenuated and a bit worty with some fruit and grassy hops in the background.
