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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - 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.

Wegro (330) - 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.

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.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Deep copper hued brew with a dense but light khaki head. Nose of grapefruit and caramel. There is also fresh cut wood. The taste is brown sugar coated grapefruit with some pine on the back end. There is also a little hint of smoke, especially in the finish. This is a pretty nice sticky slightly sweet IPA. I like it.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium light-beige head with decent retention; leaves cobwebby lacework. Aroma is peachy, citrus powder drink, honeysuckle. Taste is bitter with sweet edges. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is sticky. Not bad. 3.7 seems to be my number lately!

Duhast500 (374) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sierra Nevada Pint glass. The color is a clear copper-amber with a finger of foamy off-white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell has some nice earthy hoppy aroma with some The taste is pretty hoppy at first with some earthy notes that hold a good sized bitterness that also a good sized malt presence as well. The hits with a taste of piney hops at the end and makes this comes back to the bitterness. The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkable feel to a beer that has a good amount of hops. It does have a smooth side and it make this beer surprising in how well this drinks.
