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.

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 355 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.0%. Orange to amber colour, moderate off-white head. Pleasant aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and fruity hops. Nice hoppy flavour throughout, but not extreme bitterness for an American IPA. Bitter enough for me, though. Sufficient malts, but not very sweet. Very drinkable.

What can be said? It’s an on style IPA. Mild aroma of ipa hops. Look is burnt orange. Taste is bitter medicine. Good sizzle for an IPA. Seems to lack the viscosity of many thicker ipa. Overall it’s pretty much on style. Not my favorite style.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, dark orange beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is grassy and fruity, a bit weak. Malty sweetness blends in, lightly biscuity. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with flavors of apples and pears, maybe some plums, and citrus peel and green pine cones. Malty sweetness as a backdrop. It’s full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Bitter and fruity finish, quite balanced. A pleasant one indeed, although a bit sweet, and the aroma is quite dull. 130222

youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Single bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is very grassy/piny with some malt and caramel in the background. Taste is a little heavier on the malt, with a lot of grapefruit and nicely balanced hops. Creamier mouthfeel than normal for an IPA.
