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.

Like the smell, a juicy and floral hop driven taste with nice notes of citrus and grassy hops. Citrus fruit notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and melon. Floral hop notes along with some earthy notes of grass and pine. Soft bready malt notes of cracker, biscuit, and yeast as well as a little honey sweetness. A pretty nice taste.

I'd not seen this one until tonight's visit to The Ginger Man. Beers here vary by the day sometimes! According to the barkeep, they just got it in yesterday.
Evil Twin Falco IPA is an excellent, well rounded beer. Faint haze when held to the light, strong citrus and especially grapefruit and just a tang of pine resin, very nice. Not quite like my memories of chewing on that #2 cedar pencil when I was a kid, but made me smile nonetheless.
Fruity-ish but bitter all the way though. Excellent nose. Effervescent but not overly carbonated. Continue to emit streams of bubbles even after several minutes.
Lacy white head, slowly diminishes but still hanging around after 5 minutes of drinking.
Will have to make a trip to Connecticut - didn't know that there was such an excellent beer! Kudos!

I was surprised how much I liked my first work beer in NYC. 7.0 seemed like a fair amount for a working day, it was a pleasant buzz, and cheap enough to get my attention. 10/10 would lunch drink again.

Such an excellent beer. Lordy Poured this a touch warm, but that hurt it not. Has a large, foamy, frothy, sudsy, off-white head that settled to a thin, spotty cover after a bit and lots of lace. Color is a very slightly hazy pale gold yellow with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is very aromatic, was apparent upon bottle opening, is more resin than grapefruit with enough malt to balance and round it out. Flavor's like nose, has just enough sweetness to temper the heady bitterness. Body/carbonation are great plus it has some chewiness that I really like. Finish is like flavor, stays true all the way slowly tapers. Killer beer..

A: hazy gold, big 2” pure white rocky foam collar that produces ledges of lace.
S: some earthy notes on the nose, citrus, light grass.
T: Some light biscuit. Initial palate has some sweet fruit and then by mid-palate it balances with the hop and it simultaneously dries out and becomes juicy.
F: Very creamy, bone dry and fairly light body for an IPA. Carbonation is very soft, moderately low
O: Refreshing, drinkable, well rounded and well balanced. The level of bitterness is similar to what you would find in a gin and tonic.
