The US Falconer's Flight hop pellets is a blend of different types of hop varieties including Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Citra and other experimental hops which are native to the Northwest region of the US. It was created by the hop supplier HopUnion in 2010 and was named in honour of the legendary Oregon Brewer Glen Hay Falconer. It is one of the hop blends that provide a unique flavor to the beer. Currently, there are no substitute for the US Falconer's Flight hop pellets.
This particular hop blend is designed for its aroma. It imparts tropical and fruity aromas to the final brew. The US Falconer's Flight also has lemon and grapefruit notes to it. It contains a very high alpha acid value which is between 9.5% and 12%. It also contains 4% to 5% of beta acids and 20% to 25% co-humulone. This is the reason why this particular hop pellets do not only provide great aroma to the beer but also a mild bitter flavour to it. It is available in 1-lb packaging, plenty enough for mixing large batches of IPA and American pale ales. It can also be used to create large batches of brew.
The alpha acids, beta acids and other essential oils easily dissipate from the hops once the packaging has been opened. To retain the efficacy of the alpha acids, store the hop pellets inside a cool, dark and dry place.
