Review: Evil Twin Falco IPA

Today's review is Evil Twin Brewing's Falco IPA, something I've seen many of my beer geek friends sample over the year(s) on Untappd but never got to experience it myself.

What makes a great leader? A perfectly balanced blend of qualities, the ability to stand out - be authoritative not overpowering. Show courage - you will lead the way and eat standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA. 7% ABV

Appearance: Cloudy golden body with a bit of carbonation in the body as well as a good amount of thick off-white head on top. Once I pour in the last bit of the beer in the glass I get a really hazy IPA vibe to it.

Aroma: Mildly juicy, tropical, leafy and tad creamy. Lots of yeastiness that gives off a sharp presence on the nose, notes of orange, alfalfa and a hint of pineapple. Somewhat oat-like.

Taste: Quite oaty and creamy with a vibrant tropical presence to it, predominantly orange but with a bit of a pineapple and melon profile to it, quite leafy and leaves behind a very yeasty aftertaste at the end. Moderately bitter but mostly from the yeast more than the hops. 

Overall Thoughts: Not much to say here but it was solid. Glad to see Evil Twin in Manitoba now days (via Quality Beer Store). Excellent take on your every day Hazy/Juicy IPA.
