Against the Grain Big Falcon Deal


Brewed by Against the Grain Brewery
Louisville, Kentucky USA
Style: American Pale Ale | Ratings: 5 | Alcohol: 5.5%
An American style pale ale brewed with Falconerís Flight hops. Falconerís Flight is a hop blend named after Northwest brewing legend Glen Hay Falconer who passed away in 2002. The blend includes Citra, Simcoe and Sorachi Ace hops and exhibits pleasant citrus, grapefruit, spicy and earthy characteristics. We brewed Big Falcon Deal with a hearty and inspired grain bill of Vienna malt, special aromatic, victory and oats to provide a complex and well rounded malt profile. We then bittered this ale with Columbus hops, provided some flavor with Cascade and then loaded the last 10 minutes of the boil with the Falconerís Flight hop blend. Falconerís Flight was also added post fermentation with a little bit of Centennial to showcase the hopís aroma.
