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.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is straw, a little dense/opaque, head is mixture of bubble sizes and presents 1/2 inch thick, nice lacing.

Smell is very nice blend of citrus and lighter pine/earthy hops, not overpowering and slightly subdued but enticing for the flavor to come...

Taste is more pronounced flavors of the aroma and very good: nice hop bitterness, simple clean malt bill that allows the hops to shine through; malt is light toast, no caramel; hops are a little more bitter pine and earth, with a very pronounced lemon quality amongst the citrus flavors.

Mouthfeel is very good, and very pleasant lasting flavor and presence, the simple malt components keep it away from cloying flavors and the bitterness remains fresh and enticing.

Overall, this is a very good and delicious IPA, i'm a sucker for the lighter cleaner IPAs and this one is good, but it is a little dense looking.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. This beer has a great hops and pine aroma. Falco is a crystal clear yellow with a large white head. The flavor matches the smell. A real good IPA.

Golden with a little haze, lots of carbonation, 3 fingers of yellowish head.

Pine, orange peel, fruity, spicy, resinous.

Pine, orange peel, pears, melon, big bitter hop finish. Well hidden alcohol.

Light feeling for the high ABV. Good carbonation, dry crisp finish.

Got at Beer Lab in Chiang Mai, drank there this evening (Sept 13, 2015) with my friend David. Really smooth and dry brew, hides the ABV. Well done.
