>> Thanks Meg for the share. Clear amber pour, great lacing. Bright hop nose, stanky, cheesecloth, nutty, pine. Taste is dusty, nutty, bitter. Not my style of IPA. More heavy nutty mouthfeel with specialty malt unneeded. Sort of the old school, outdated type of IPA.

radagast83 (4131) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Draft at Snallygaster 2013. Poured a golden yellow color, vibrant even, with a nice medium sized pure white head. Aroma was full of juicy tropical fruit notes, citrus. Some touch of earthy funk in there from the hops, but overall, the strange Falconer’s Flight hop provides a unique and tasty IPA.
