Bomber from trade on BA. Pours hazy golden honey colored orange with white head and nice lacing. Aromas of bright citrus and tropical fruits, peaches, and light malt presence. Flavors of peach and fruity hops, and some sweet malts. Easy drinking, but lacks bitter punch I was craving. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle at Beer Revolution. Thanks Rebecca! It pours a nice golden color with a white head. The aroma is very peachy with some big tropical fruit and a bit of pine. The flavor is very well balanced with some nice intense fruity hops and good piney bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink. A really enjoyable IIPA.

Irishboy is awesome. Phoned rate. Murky amber with a good sized white head. This was surprisingly light bodied. Earthy citrus hops with a bit of dough and caramel. Not much in the way of bitterness in the finish, damn near refreshing. Very nice. douglas88 (9180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Bomber thanks to Richard. Pours a very cloudy orange color with a thick white head. The aroma is rich oranges and lemon. A rich, very dry flavor with citrus, dried orange peel, some light bitterness but not a lot, smooth and creamy. Very dry. A nice showcase of the Falconer’s Flight hops. Grapefruit and dry earthiness. Well done. nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pour from a bottle graciously provided by good buddy Frank. Golden orange in color with nice white head. Aromas were of grass, pine ,and a touch of grapefruit citrus character. Really smooth in your mouth. Solid flavorful hop profile with bitterness balanced with light sweet malt. Finish is balanced and dry. This beer tasted less tropical in fruit character than Citra but overall very tasty and worth trying.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Orange-yellow body, larger white head caps it off, nice sudsy lacing left behind on the glass.
S: Bright citric and tropical fruits. Grapefruit, orange, tangerine.
T: Mostly a tangerine-like hop flavor. A bit "one note" as the bitterness that comes with this hop treatment is about all that is noticeable.
M: Medium bodied. Assertive carbonation. Bold bitterness in the finish.
O: A nice, big dIPA. However, I found it to be a bit one dimensional and not particularly interesting. Certainly not Kern River’s Citra. brew3crew (166) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2012

Hazy golden orangish pour thin white head. Aroma is very nice with wet grass vegetal and sweet candy. The falconers hops are pretty unique with a very citrus and butter like. Finishes with a nice crisp bitterness and nice maltyness. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2011
(22oz bomber thanks to Exiled) clear gold-amber with soapy tan bubbles. Nose is extremely fresh citrus, lime, a bit of cat pee, orange, and a tinge floral as well. Taste of bright citrus fruits, oranges and grapefruit pulp, super flavorful. Excellent linger, super hoppy without being ridiculous bitter. An awesome DIPA.
