Default AHS Promo Millennium Falconer critique

Has anyone tried the AHS Promo Millennium Falconer IPA kit. I am not familiar with either of these hops and am interested to know how this brew tastes and turned out. Oh and I love the Star Wars reference. It is the best ship in universe.

I can't speak for the Millennium Falconer IPA kit, but I've made my own IPA with Falconer's Flight and Magnum. I really like Falconer's flight, but I also like anything with Amarillo and Cascade. The grapefruit/citrus flavor seems to stand out nicely, but there is more character to it than Amarillo, from what I can tell. All AHS kits I have tried have been exceptional, so I would say it's worth a try.

Definitely go for it! I brewed this and added some rye, making it the Ryebel Alliance Mellinium Falconer, haha. You can't go wrong with a good bittering hop (mellinium) and then a mix of all the best citrusy hops (Falconer's). I would leave out the rye next time, but it is still great with it. Tapped right now and going fast!

Falconer's Flight IPA was my first brew and still my best to date. Probably one of my favorite beers. I think I'll have to try this after my IIPA

A buddy just bottled a batch of this last night. Will report back in a few weeks. The only problem is, this was a promo kit, so if it turns out to be great, we'll have to recreate it since it currently isn't available as a kit.
