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.

Chudwick (1785) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 24, 2013
growler - pours clear amber/copper with ivory head and modest lacing. Nose is coniferous and citrus. Flavor adds muted malts, alcohol, light grapefruit and some resin. dry. moderate to heavy bitterness and light sweetness. light to medium body and easy to drink. lacks the tongue tingling bitterness of a good IPA, but the flavor is decent enough.

WarChef1 (23) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle. Poured Amber to orange with light off colored head. Head did not stick around long, little to no lacing. (couldve been glass) Aroma was light on citrus hop and some peach notes. heavier malt on the nose.. Taste was bright with light grapefruit not much on the stone fruit per the description. Malt character was nice and bitterness was light. This is a good starter beer for people getting into ipas. Palate was light and clean, not a heavy beer. Crisp. Overall decent beer

Bottle in Portland OR. This is a bitter and hoppy IPA that does not offer much other than those features. Good if that’s all your after.

nickd717 (3403) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
On tap at Iron Horse in DC. Clear copper color with a one finger whitish head. Resin and pine dominate on the aroma with malt in the background. It has caramel and orange rind flavors, rather balanced and tasty, just a bit on the sweeter side. Medium body with average carbonation. Solid but not amazing.

jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Location/Date:Draft at Iron Horse Taproom, January 4th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours dark orange..
Aroma: Aroma of some pine..
Taste: Medium bitterness, pine, caramel..
Palate:Medium body, lingering aftertaste..

Summary: Really enjoyed this one. Can’t say which of the rotator I liked the best or if this one was elevated due to being on draft, but liked it. Maybe it was the lack of IPA style options at the bar, who knows.
