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.

The aroma is really hoppy but well balanced with caramel malt. The hops are grassy and citrusy without being overpowering. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma and slightly astringent. The palate is smooth. Overall not to shabby!

From bottle. I love the rotator series of IPAs. This one is more subdued in hop presence but is still a decent offering. Some citrus but malt is more apparent than the other IPAs in the series.

deep amber pour with a cream head. nose is fresh hops, light fruits, and citrus. nice on the palate, very toned down hop flavor, creamy fruits, and a lightly bitter finish.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Light floral and citrus aroma. Blends well with the caramel malt, but not a whole lot of hops flavor to this one. Slightly bitter, decent.

cmonster (954) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle served in a tulip. Clear dark honey with a short head. Decent retention and great lacing. Subtle aroma of floral hops, stone fruit and earthy malt. Has a more pronounced flavor with a good balance of malt and resiny hops. Medium-light body, oily texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pours a hazy orange-copper color with off-white head and active carbonation. Aroma is hard candy, caramel, bready malts. Not getting much hops. Taste is sweet with more hard candy. I’m surprised, but this tastes like its already over the hill. Medium bodied with a sticky texture. Not a bad beer, but definitely malt-forward.

thegreenrooster (3088) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Pour is a dark orange with a average white head. Aroma is a nice fruity citrus hop with some sweet malt. Flavor is the same. A nice almost mandarin orange fruit with a nice bitterness followe by a decent malty backbone. This is a nice IPA from Widmers

Ron (2352) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Clear bright orange with a smallish head. Big orange citrus hoppy aroma, with some Floral tones. Taste was mild citrus with some grassy bitterness in the forefront. Chewy toffee backbone. This one was alittle dry and bitter.

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Hazy burnt orange pour with ring of tan head and seafoam lacing. Sweet caramel apple hop nose with a little perfume. Flavor is decent semi pine hop character and some balanced malt caramel sweetness. Leans toward a somewhat bitter hop bite on the finish. A little ’sprucy’ even. Decent, But not anything to write home about.
