COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brew Cocky is another IPA I came up with that is brewed with loads and loads of Falconers Flight Hops that we use in an inappropriate, gratuitous manner and make them just explode in your face.

Hazy amber color with generous compact head. Nice aroma, musky, hoppy, fruity, a bit sweaty. Full bodied, moderately sweet, good malt flavor; potent hopping, very resiny, quite fruity, oranges. Very nice.

Capped 750 from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours clear dark copper with a 4finger creamy beige head. Lots of fruit in the nose. Seems a mix of tropic, light pitted and citrus. Not getting caramel, but there’s lots of head in the way. Finally. The malt seems pretty roasty. Near full bodied. Flavor has a big roast malt backbone, but there’s a huge amount of floral, citrus and mixed fruit to hold it down. This seems very fresh and lush. I’m thinking it’s between 1 and 2 months old - based on memory of when it could be ordered. Some resin starts oozing into the mix. It’s hoppy plus, but it’s smooth not harsh and burning. Finishes hoppy and bitter with a little sweet backing. Brilliant effing ale.

Bottle shared at the July MDF tasting. Clear copper, large fizzy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tropical fruits, zest and pithy citrus, caramel malt. The taste is tropical, citrus hops, caramel malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, mild lingering bitterness.

Plastic growler @ Exira Beer Summit III. Thanks to jcnielsen! Maybe a week old. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with little to no head. Pungent, somewhat sticky, piney hoppy, orange citrusy, earthy aroma. Kind of chewy earthy, somewhat resiny flavor that’s pretty potent with some booze on the back end. Ok, but it is a bit strong.

hopscotch (10118) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle (dregs)… CCB’s Hunahpu’s Day 2012… Amber colored ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention. The bouquet is very fruity – mango, tangerine, pineapple – but also biscuity and bready with a trace of resin. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Fantastic malt backbone with a more-than-charitable hop bill to match. Terrific bitterness; low sweetness. Lengthy, grapefruity, tropical-fruity, bitter finish. Thanks to the generous dude from Missouri who provided my pour!

mcberko (9571) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
750mL bottle, pours an opaque dark orangey amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, light tropical fruits, and a little caramel. Flavour brings out shitloads of tropical fruits upfront, followed by citrus zest and a little alcohol burn. Well-balanced, with a big malty profile in addition to the tropical fruity hops. Good stuff.

Pretty strong and hoppy brew here, darker pour, sweeping hop bitterness on this one.

deyholla (8343) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle shared by Kan, thanks! Pours a hazy orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has notes of earthy pine with a slight must and backing sweet grains. Flavor has notes of sweet grains with just a bit of backing earthy pine. A bit sweet.
