Evil Twin Brewing Falco – American IPA at 7% ABV

Evil Twin Brewing Falco American IPA at 7% ABV (C$4.75 at Zyn,  330 ml, bottle date 3-Oct-2015)

Pours hazy straw with one finger of pillowy white head, good retention and moderately heavy lacing. (4/5) Nose is dominated by pine resin and sweet citrus, with pale malt and tropical fruit in the background. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, crisply bitter finish. (4/5)

IPA done the way I like it: just enough light malt sweetness to temper the initial hop bite, but as the sweetness quickly fades, the sharp hoppy bitterness remains. Perhaps a touch simplistic, with not a lot of depth of flavour or complexity, but certainly worth trying. I’d really, really like to try this fresh. (15/20)
