3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at an esbls tasting. A nice looking beer. Mid brown and hazy . A nice thick big beige head. A citrusy aroma with applesauce and a hint of spice. A nice feel. I taste nice citrus that is complex. Peaches, applesauce, spice, and caramel. It is mildly bitter but only mildly. A Hopslam was put next to this and the 2bd Shift beer outshone it by a nose.

On tap at GTMW 2013. Hazy amber with a large medium tan head. Aroma is vineous with floral hops and a caramel malt backer. Taste is floral and citrusy with a sweet malt backer and an aggressive bitter finish.

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

Thin to no head. Dark copper. Very deep bitterness (centennial?). Lasting bitterness. I dont think Iíve said this before May almost too hoppy.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I have this every chance I get. A lot at Baileyís Range.
Citrus hop bomb nose. Oranges and grapefruit with some nice sweet fruit juice notes. Herbal, grassy and dank hop notes. Complex nose. Gotta love Falconerís Flight Hops.
This is a special brew. Unique and wonderful. Very intense hop notes that are well crafted. The malt bill seems to play it safe in the background with some bready grain notes and thatís about it but that is perfect because it puts these huge Falconerís Flight Hops on display and in your face. Mmmm.
This is only one of a few Falconerís Flight Hopped beers that I can find. I use them in my Home Brewed IPA. They are an amazing blend.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was light citrusy hops and a ton of caramel malt. Smelled very sweet. Taste was similar but not as sweet as the nose would lead on. Not too bad, just could use some more hop bite.

This IPA was certainly a malt bomb, but that wasnít a bad thing here. The aroma had some hops in it, the rest was oranges and candy. It tasted like dried citrus and light honey, only with dank hops lingering in the background. Overall a good separation of flavors, like a decent American strong ale. I could see it being pretty damn good fresh.

Growler to go from the brewery. Sampled at Exira Beer Summit 2012. Pours a hazy orange color with white head. Grapefruit, citrus, hoppy flavors. Some tropical fruit and grassy/earthy notes. A touch of alcohol.

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 thatís pretty potent with some booze on the back end. Ok, but it is a bit strong.
