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.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts and earthy, floral hops. The taste is bitter earthy almost woody hops. Slightly minty and citrus finish with caramel malts. Medium bodied.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle. Dark yellowish orange pour with a medium beige head. Aromas of sweet citrus rind, some pine, and some malty sweetness. The flavor is sugary citrus trending into bitter citrus rind, some pine, and a bitter finish. Clean, pretty drinkable. Pretty good. [877]

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear dark orange with a thick white head. Aroma of toasted malt, bready malts, floral hops. Flavor of lots of caramel and bready malts, light fruits. Not very hoppy at all, I dunno if that’s age or what it’s supposed to taste like, although it doesn’t taste stale/old, so I’m thinking this is just a malty IPA/pale ale. A bit bland, boring, but drinkable. 6/4/7/3/14 [3.4/5]

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Dang fine beer! Nice piney aroma and pours perfectly clear and wonderfully orange/amber. Taste is solid pine hop with just enough malt sweetness. A nice body and clean finish. This is an excellent beer for 7.99 a 6pack!

Reid (1917) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12 oz single from Roth’s Vista Market ,Salem. $1.35 typical burnt orange body with a nice,thick and frothy eggshell white head. not liking the aroma..this is the type of IPA aroma that puts me off pungent green onion..though it gets Ok after the first few deep sniffs. Taste ..bland really..sweet malty..grassy hop...slightly fruity..meh. Ok i suppose on the palate..nothing to write home about. Another dissapointment from the Rotator series..im not sure am i missing something?

This was a damn good beer. Perfect looking when poured. Amber with tons of carbonation and a 1 inch tan head. Very hoppy aroma and taste.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was tangy caramel, pine and vague fruits. The flavor was bitter with moderately strong perfumey and floral hops, light pine, vague fruity hops and caramel. Medium finish and body. Ok.

Draught at The Village Draught house. Pours sharp clean gold with one finger of sticky white head. Nose is light and citrusy with sweet notes and hops reminiscent of centennial and cascades. Flavor is citrusy and sweet with a light grassy character and light zesty bitterness. Light bodied and dry with a light bitterness.

Wegro (331) - Fresno, California, USA - OCT 31, 2011
sweetish flavor, moderate bitterness. nice copper/amber colored body mot much lacing. not a bad brew but a little bit pedestrian, really doesn’t stand out or give you anything to remember it by, even if there’s nothing wrong with it.

degbert (1148) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a rich dark gold with a high, large-grained, white head. Nose is citrus, gooseberry, and herbs. Stone fruit, toast, citrus, and more herbs -- rosemary -- on the tongue, with a crisp, lively feel to it. Finishes clean. Absolutely delicious.
