Well the Christmas tree is up and the house is looking festive and cosy; it's cold outside and the last two mornings has seen some heavy frosts. It's definitely stout weather.... so why have I got so many IPA's on my shelf to get through.

I realise that it's a bit of a first world problem, but I do appreciate that some beers do not age well. Therefore, amongst some of the darker beers in my collection I'm going to tick off a few of the lighter beers... who knows, maybe it'll help stave off seasonal affective disorder.

Tonight's is one that I was particularly excited about as everything I've had from Evil Twin has been outstanding.

Falco is an IPA weighing in at 7% ABV and in the glass it almost looks like a lager; it's a beautiful amber colour, with an ever so slight haze and a crisp white head which does a decent job of hanging around.

It has a wonderfully strong but clean nose, with grapefruit and pine being the dominating aromas.

Falco's medium body and nice level of carbonation gives it a lovely mouth feel.

It taste's amazing; the citrus balances beautifully with the malts, and a slight pine resin spiciness rounds it out before a very satisfying bitter finish.

Falco is hugely drinkable and is a cracking example of this style of IPA; there's nothing ground-breaking in this beer and it's not as flashy or unusual as some of Evil Twin's offerings, but that doesn't mean that it's not spectacular.

This is one that I would definitely buy again.

  1. Yay for the Christmas tree being up. This wee looks nice and although you didn't ask for my help with the pictures, they're good too.
