Single bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is very grassy/piny with some malt and caramel in the background. Taste is a little heavier on the malt, with a lot of grapefruit and nicely balanced hops. Creamier mouthfeel than normal for an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orange toward brownish copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head that dissipates quickly. The head is loud, and says, "Rotate these hops, douche bag." Whatever, head. Nose is bready dullish caramel malt, hops that are citric but don;t really "POP", but are pronounced nonetheless. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat sweet, orange marmaladey, somewhat floral, with a resiny IBU-heavy finish. This one is good, but not elite. The Falconer’s gets a bot overwhelmed by the malt here. In 99% of cases, the converse is true.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Manchester Pub in NYC. Pours orange amber with medium white head. Light citrus aroma, but not overwhelming. Piney, resin and citrus taste that lingers on the palate long after drinking. Very bright flavors, fairly bitter.

Bottle from Whole Foods - El Segundo. Substantial citrus, some herbal notes in aroma. Copper color, big carbonation, thick rocky off-white head. Sharp hoppy initial; mid balances out with good malt, also a bit metallic; finish is a punch of sweets and then goes minerally. Medium body. Very pleasant stuff, quite malty. Solid.
