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 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 (413) - 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.

Bottle. Nice looker, but I didn’t get much aroma out of it. The selling point is the hop variety, and these are fruity, or perhaps even candy like, without being sweet. Some fairly aggressive bitterness to this ale as well. I’m glad Widmer is trying new hops rather than the usual Cascade, Centennials, et. al., although I don’t love this IPA.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Tap at McGintey’s in Silver Spring. Pours a deeper amber with not much head. Nose is malty, earthy, poopy. Taste is very malty, nutty bitter, big grapefruit pith. Earthy, dirty, raw. Heavier mouthfeel. A little harsh. Nut shells, peanuts come across through nutty hoppiness. Not bad.

Nice amber color with a decent head. Not a lot of lacing. Mild citrusy aroma. Mildly bitter too. Sweet aftertaste and slick, oily finish. Pleasant but nothing noteworthy.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a clear copper color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. light tiny spotted lacing. Flavor is floral and citrus hops with fruity esters. Aroma is pretty much the same. There is a little malt sweetness lingering in the finish. Medium body. Clean. A very nice Widmer beer.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle:   Fiery amber, lively carbonation, large fluffy white head, very nice lacing.   Citrus rind, pith, and some faint grapefruit like hop notes on the nose.   Fairly strong grapefruit like hoppiness up front.   Light sweetness, mild bitterness.   Has a mild earthy malt background.   Very smooth overall, decent malt base.   Could stand to be a bit brighter tho, more floral or citrusy sweet.   As it warms I get a bit of alcohol on the nose.   Yeah, flavorwise its there but its a little dull and muted.   Needs to be brighter for sure.   Lingering grapefruit pith and soft earthen malts.
