COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Glen Falconer was passionate about friends, familly, and great IPAs. So in tribute, we’ve created an IPA worth of this master brewer. Made with Falconer’s Flight hops from Hopunion, LLC, a blend named for Glen himself. The result is a bright, moderately bitter IPA with stonefruit aromas and a strong malt backbone. We think Glen would approved. Proceeds from the sale of Falconer’s Flight hops go to the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, providing scholarships to professional and aspiring brewers. In addition, Widmer Brothers Brewing is making a donation to grant two additional scholarships. Learn more at www.glenfalconerfoundation.org. Prost! To true hop heads.

Bottle. 7.0%. Best before 31.03.14. Pours a hazy golden/copper with an off-white/yellowish head. Good lacing. Aroma is mild; malty, dough, hops and a light milky note.

Lingering dry, grassy note. Overall so-so. 07.03.13.

CaliCanuck (1) - Gold River, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013 does not count
What a nice surprise! Seemed like such a "generic" type of label and beer when I bought it in a variety pack. But a pleasant taste and easy IPA to drink and enjoy - just the right strength and finish. Will enjoy the rest in the case with my Hon.

Zymurgeist2 (1107) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Fairly weak aroma of orange and malt. Clear copper with nice full white head and full lacing. Taste of dirty earth. Slight orange and malt in the background. With citrus and nice bitterness at the backend. Wonder if there is an issue with the line or age - thus does not have the bursting aspects of Falconer’s Flight when I have brewed with it.

Holmen1 (2775) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2013 Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff feb-13: deilig aroma med karamellsødme og citrus. Har de brukt crystal malt? Ihvertfall er munnfylden fin. Frisk og smaksrik, og farlig lett å drikke til å være 7.0%. Denne må jeg prøve en hel flaske av. Og det fikk jeg gjort, takk til Gml. Strand Øllager: slik skal det smake på en benk ved kanalen i strålende sommervær. Livet er dejligt.

brokensail (11551) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
A nice amber pour with a white head. Good floral and citrus peel hops, particularly orange peel. A bit of grass, some sweet bread, and a nice pine note. The flavor has a lot of pine and floral hop notes. Nice bitterness, mild bread sweetness, and a dry finish. Orange peel, a hint of grass, and a lightly herbal quality.
