750ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy dark orange, almost ruby, with a quarter finger of white head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Mostly pineapple and mango with mango with a little grapefruit and pine. Taste is medium bitter. Very tropical, pineapple and mango with grapefruit. Medium bodied with a lightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, awesome. I would drink this every day if I could! ArrogantDusty (40) - Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2013
I have this every chance I get. A lot at Bailey’s Range.
Citrus hop bomb nose. Oranges and grapefruit with some nice sweet fruit juice notes. Herbal, grassy and dank hop notes. Complex nose. Gotta love Falconer’s Flight Hops.
This is a special brew. Unique and wonderful. Very intense hop notes that are well crafted. The malt bill seems to play it safe in the background with some bready grain notes and that’s about it but that is perfect because it puts these huge Falconer’s Flight Hops on display and in your face. Mmmm.
This is only one of a few Falconer’s Flight Hopped beers that I can find. I use them in my Home Brewed IPA. They are an amazing blend. Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. I have to chuckle at the label (not the one shown here, but one of a heavily "bearded" rooster chomping on a hop), and wonder if the BATF guy who approved the name and label could appreciate the double entendre of both the name and the label. Anyway .. nicely done aggressively hopped, high alcohol ale here. Full of citric, piney hop and a solid-as-a-flock malt back drop ... A+ beer.

Large bottle into teku, "drink by 10/2015" so we beat that by 3-4 months. I’m a big fan of Falconer hops so when I read the description on the bottle while on vacation, standing in the limited/rare section…I had no choice. Aroma is of a rich yet subtle orange, color is a classic orange and cloudy. So smooth in taste, damn near perfection. If you chug it then it can be a little boozy in the mouth, this is to be savored and appreciated. It’s not complex or complicated, but concentrated craftsmanship. No way am I passing through MO again without seeking out more of this wonderful IIPA.

Capped 750 from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours clear dark copper with a 4finger creamy beige head. Lots of fruit in the nose. Seems a mix of tropic, light pitted and citrus. Not getting caramel, but there’s lots of head in the way. Finally. The malt seems pretty roasty. Near full bodied. Flavor has a big roast malt backbone, but there’s a huge amount of floral, citrus and mixed fruit to hold it down. This seems very fresh and lush. I’m thinking it’s between 1 and 2 months old - based on memory of when it could be ordered. Some resin starts oozing into the mix. It’s hoppy plus, but it’s smooth not harsh and burning. Finishes hoppy and bitter with a little sweet backing. Brilliant effing ale. kaser (6367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Delicious. Cloudy orange with this head. Topical and citrus fruit - very good and very par vyvvy (6639) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours lightly hazy copper/amber with a good sized beige head. The aroma has a hop presence that is like tangerines, pineapples, spice and some funkiness. There is some balance with mildly sweet caramel malt. Really pleasant. Medium / thick body that is a little sticky and has flowing soft carbonation for the style. The flavor starts off with more balance that expected. There is a hearty malt presence of sweet toasty caramel malt that would come across as cloying if there wasn’t so much of a hop presence. The hops come across a bit different than the aroma with the fruitiness still there, but toned down and a pine/earth/spice taste taking center stage. The finish has the hops coming out more and there is a lingering sweet sticky malt and resiny hoppiness that never seems to leave. This came out in the same week as Hopslam and Double Trouble and has no problem going toe to toe with them. Another winner from 2nd Shift. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014

Hazy amber color with generous compact head. Nice aroma, musky, hoppy, fruity, a bit sweaty. Full bodied, moderately sweet, good malt flavor; potent hopping, very resiny, quite fruity, oranges. Very nice.
A vibrant tropical orange body with tall white head, massive citrusy, catty, piney hop character over sweet citrusy components on a wonderfully smooth medium body
