Bottle thanks to IrishBoy! Dark hazy orange pour, no carbonation and an aroma of sweet syrupy hoppy oranges. Light hoppy orange rinds, warming and finishes smooth and a little boozy. Decent.

[Bottle] shared by Greg. Thanks! Pours cloudy straw gold with a small, soapy white head. Aroma is pine resin, grapefruit, some caramel malt, and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is caramalt, some grapefruit, a touch of alcohol, and quite a bit of pine resin. This one is definitely showing some age.

Bomber shared by sloth: Nice looking DIPA, copper orange, decent little head. Good nose. I never heard of falconers flight hops, sounds like some shite from Harry Potter. But taste is nice. Bitter, but well balanced with a malt presence. Little piney and grassy. Thin bodied but not watery. Overall: A nice drinkable dipa, thanks Bert for sharing!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate tropical fruits, lightly sweet orange, and grapefruit. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) golden-orange with a creamy three finger head with excellent retention. Thereís is some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. Itís definitely an impressive looking beer. The flavor starts with a moderate dose of tropical fruits and pineapple. The finish has lightly sweet orange and light grapefruit. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, itís not in the bitter hop bomb class of IIPAs, but itís damn tasty with all the tropical fruits and itís dangerously drinkable.
