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. Sho courage and endurance, you will lead the way and set the 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. -Evil Twin

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Hazy pale peach gold pour with a thin, fluffy, soapy off white head. Aroma of citrus, stone fruit, floral and tropical fruit hops, some biscuit and toasty notes. Flavor is biscuit, cereal, sweet malt and hay on the malt side; floral, spicy, citrus and passion fruit on the hop side. medium body, slightly oily, creamy entry leading to a chalky + oily = slightly dry finish and a medium strength, sharp and blanketing carbonation. Good stuff overall, the aroma really wrote a check that the taste couldn’t cash, and after a couple drinks the aroma seemed much less amazing for some reason.

Rask0lnikov (569) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 16, 2016
Pale yellow colour. Modest white head. Lots if pineapple, citrusses, acididness, but at the same time sweetness in the aroma. Pineapple and citrusses at first. Sweetness. Bitterness and citrusses. Dry and bitter finish. Rather medium bodied, sweet at the beginning, dry and bitter in the end, medium carbonated IPA. Not a good palete and balance. However beer is drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 Can from Whole Foods Sugar Land. Very slightly hazy golden with a frothy off-white head with light lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, and grain. Taste is well balanced; mildly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium bodied, very nicely carbonated, and a little bit dry.

suurjuust (2736) - ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden amber pour, medium white head. Nose is fruity, peach and mild pineapple, malty notes and sweetness. Fruity and surprisingly soft hoppy character in the flavor, sweet notes and peach, citrus. Resiny and citric finish, spicy-hoppy bitterness. Dangerously drinkable.

ffbot (310) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Drank outta a can, nice grapefruit and lemons on the nose. Lots of hops bitter it up and add a little zing and spice. Balanced and tasty, a good example of a great beer

Frank (3901) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2016
This stuff is pretty good I recon. It has a nice fresh hop character, which strikes me as sort of vaguely noble-ish and floral. It is pretty mild in the nose but this is quite bitter and maybe a touch too sweet, though that sweetness does bring out a nice fruity note. This is full bodied and maybe a touch on the heavy side for an IPA but still pretty drinkable and nice. I could put back a few of these but after that I’d start getting a little sick of it and switch to something lighter.

CloakedDagger (1782) - - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a lacing, white head. Citrusy hops but not exactly in your face. Medium-bodied, smooth and soft on the palate, subtle late bitterness. Easygoing, but I could use some crisper hops. 010616

GarrettB (1392) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2016
June 20th, 2014 - Soupy, thick and colored like marmalade, Falco is a imposing looking brew out of the bottle. But the aroma is dainty, grainy, right and graced with a touch of lemon and those always hard-to-describe tastes of saison, though even lighter. The palate is sudsy up front, roiling and clouding the flavor, which only appears later in the end when a hefty hops is revealed in the aftertaste. Once the beer settles and its temper is blunted by exposure to the air and some warmth, I catch more lemongrass and rye notes that become increasingly hoppy as the flavor runs on.
