I brewed a Falconer's Flight DIPA a while back. I love the aroma. I didn't get the recipe quite right, so it's not where I'd like it exactly. But I plan to brew again because I really enjoy FF.
PRIMARY: Subtle 1 (12, pale ale brewed with Warrior, Cascade, US-05), Subtle 2 (13, same beer but with Nottingham)

I got a soapy taste from a FF smash. Anybody else get that? It was one of my first batches so there were several variables but I haven't had the soap flavor problem using the same equipment and process since.

I agree the aroma is awesome, I'll have to try it again after I use up the six pounds of hops I bought from Hopsdirect. When I do, it won't be a smash. I'll bitter with magnum or similar.
