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!"

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.

can... dark clear orange, copper in the center, huge light tan head, excellent spider web lacing... pretty nice nose, grapefruit and malt, grass... the taste is a bit too strong, chewy hops, lots of malt, sweetness is gone, alcohol finish... solid, for a canned beer, I’d have again

Clear coppery orange, white head. Sweet orange and brown sugar aroma, a little soapy and floral. Not quite as sweet as it smells, with an oddly nutty ceral quality to the malt. Dries out a lot as it finishes, with grapefruit, pine, cedar, and a nice bitter finish. Nice finish, but I’m not big on the way the malt comes across here.

this is an okay beer, fine for a session pale ale, but to make this a special ipa, just not that impressive.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 12 oz can tasted at Freddy’s. Pours a dark copper color with a medium beige head that has good retention. The aroma is tropical fruits, nuts and some caramel. The flavor is more of the same, some biter grapefruit set in a caramel malt base with piny hops finishing. The papate was full and creamy with lively carbonation. Finished short and dry. Overall: A very satisfying DIPA.

Can served in a tulip. Pours clear dark orange with a large white head. Good retention and decent lacing. Aroma is dough, oranges, and grass. Medium bitter flavor, minimal sweetness. Medium body, sticky texture, avg carbonation, and a long, dry, bitter-astringent finish.

Bottle; poured an amber/orange color with a big frothy head. Aroma of orange, yeast, citrus, with some earth and bread. Flavor was a bit more hoppy than expected. Earthy and citrus dominated, and it fades to some caramel and bread. Still quite easy to drink. Nice beer.

12 oz. can from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops and very light toasted caramel malt. Flavor is toasted malt and pine hops. Medium body. A decent beer. I would imagine this beer is much better fresh.

First to rate thanks to womencantsail! This poured a medium amber color with a beige head. Aroma was sweet caramel malt, light biscut, and citrsy lemony hops. Flavor was almost balanced, but a bit too much on the malty side for my liking, malt is themain focus here with medium bitterness and little hops taste. OK.

on tap at 1702 pours light amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is doughy with lots of toast and big grassy hop notes. Flavor is very malt forward with lots of nuts and again toast ending with a grassy/pine hop presence that is equal parts bitter and astringent.
