Brewed exclusively with Falconer’s Flight Hops from HopUnion, and only the finest Malts from Brewers Supply Group, both of which have given support on the collaboration of this project. Proceeds from this commemorative brew will be donated to the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation to provide scholarships to Brewers and Home Brewers to further their knowledge and expertise. Enjoy, lift your can, and say "Hay!"

Can pours clear copper with loose tan head. The modest aroma offers up a bit of spicy hops, even less citrus and a sort of malty sensation. The taste has some sweet malts and a mix of mostly citrus, spicy and a bit of earthy hops. It seems these notes are unable to pull together into a cohesive flavor.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Pours clear gold, frothy beige head. Aroma of wood, resin, toffee, mostly dank and earthy hops with a touch of lemon. Taste has a good amount of bitterness, but it does not have as long or brutal of a finish as I expected. Lots of malt balances this hop that I am experiencing for the first time that I know of here. There is just some bright or floral hop flavor and aroma that I would love to have in this beer. Towards the end of the beer, it became surprisingly hard to drink. My funky ass homebrewed IPA is easier to drink than this.

Can with Carla. Pours dark gold with white foam. Smells lightly spicy of hops and rye. Tastes bitter of rye and hemp.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2011
12 oz can from Mainbrew - Pours a clear orange with a puffy white head. Initial aroma shows a lot of malt through the hops. Tastes sweeter than I expected. Kind of grows on you after a bit.

(355ml can) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, pine, biscuit, and grass. Flavor of caramel malt, grass, light pine, and bread with a dry, bitter finish.

Dogbrick (8139) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2011
This beer is a clear orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing. Citrusy hops aroma with some malt in the background. Medium body with a resiny hops character and notes of citrus, sweet malt and grain. The finish is hoppy with a lingering grapefruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

drjay44 (2636) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2011
12 oz. can. Shared with Don at brew club. Pours a lasting, white head, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is light hop florality with minimal pine, bit of citrus....taste is light toffee/caramel to start finishing with a citrus bitterness....mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This is a drinkable,reasonably balanced, but otherwise unremarkable IPA. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with quite a head. Nice citrus and herbal hops on the nose, balancing the light caramel well. The flavor has more malt up front -- wish they’d let those falconer hops shine -- and finishes with a very vinous bitterness. Tasty, but for a special brew made to commemorate a brewer, I expected something more refined.
