Brewed by Against the Grain Brewery
An American style pale ale brewed with Falconer’s Flight hops. Falconer’s 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 Falconer’s Flight hop blend. Falconer’s Flight was also added post fermentation with a little bit of Centennial to showcase the hop’s aroma.
