brokensail (11602) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 11, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a white head. S: Caramel and grass are the most prominent aromas. Some citrus peel along with some toffee and brown sugar. There are off-putting earthy and tea aromas to this as well. T: The flavor isnít much good either. Sweet malts, bread, and toffee make up the bulk of the flavor. Decently bitter with some grassy hops. Not much in the way of what I look for in an IPA. M: Medium in both body and carbonation. O: Just generally off-putting. I donít care to have this again.

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber witha creamy/foamy beige head. Aromas of lightly roast malt and slightly cooked light stone fruit. Flavor is a bit earthy - seems to be the signature for this hop. Itís also floral, and develops a bit of grapefruit rind with a little time. Just finished an aged can of Furious, and this is similar, except lots fresher. I really like the slight complexity of this hop, so my rating is likely going to be above average. Which is appropriate for me. :)

Ratman197 (10224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Can poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head and good lacing. Aroma of biscuit, earthiness, pine and light citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine and a hint of citrus with a smooth moderatly bitter finish.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2011
This beer is a clear orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing. Citrusy hops aroma with some malt in the background. Medium body with a resiny hops character and notes of citrus, sweet malt and grain. The finish is hoppy with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2011
can. citrus rind hops (orange, grapefruit), pulp/juice and floral esters in the nose with a moderate touch of malt (crackers, bread crust/toast). snappy with moderate bitterness and medium acid. chewy caramel and snappy, dry, sort-of pungent hop flavor (more citrus rind, juice and pulp, but not what Iíd call juicy or dank). a bit sweaty in the finish and a bit too rounded, full and chewy at times, but thatís about what you expect from IPA these days :/

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Can. Pours with a clear gold to orange hued body and a massive off-white head. Tight bubble groupings, good retention and lace. Aroma is a bit malty at first, grainy, bready, caramel, toffee, a bit sticky. Lightly nutty Some light esters. Hop aromas come across as citrus and mango, fruit, light pine. Flavors of are malty, a bit nutty (husky), bready, medium bitter, followed by fruit and pine. Quite a different beer than the other Falconerís Flight hopped beers that I have had (Kernís 5th comes to mind). Much more earthy and woody than explosive citrus. A bit oily/slick on the palate (could even be diacetyl, but very minimal if any). Medium bodied with lively bubbles. Slightly warming. Drinkable and not bad, but I was hopping for a bit more. Not sure what to do with the other 5 cans.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Can pours clear copper with loose tan head. The modest aroma offers up a bit of spicy hops, even less citrus and a sort of malty sensation. The taste has some sweet malts and a mix of mostly citrus, spicy and a bit of earthy hops. It seems these notes are unable to pull together into a cohesive flavor.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Can:   Fiery amber, clear, large fluffy white head, nice lacing.   Strong grainy aroma.   Hops are secondary.   Smooth on the tongue, very grainy tho.   Not so hoppy, at least as much as I thought an IPA should be.   Yeah, has this soily, earthy, and grainy flavor that just.... well... sucks.   Seems more of a Pale Ale than an IPA given that the hops are weak.   It also seems like some think that soil, dirt, earth, and graininess make up a good IPA.   Not me...   Not my kind of IPA.

after4ever (6265) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2011
12-oz can. Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a loose white head and dense sheets of drippy lace. Nice big fresh mango and pineapple nose. Caramel under. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, toast, mango, pineapple, and pine on the mid palate. Clean, balanced, and refreshing, Nice IPA.
