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.

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 (9412) - Oceanside, 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.

robgibbens (424) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - OCT 13, 2011
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.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2011
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 (6600) - 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.

Bottle. Rich amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Grapefruit and light caramel lingers with light earth.

kidmartinek (4047) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Apricot color, a hazy hue, pouring with a 2 inch sandy head. Piny cirrhosis hop aroma. The flavor is mellow and deliciously hoppy with a nice malt backbone. Yoyo can’t drink a lot of this one though but it always satisfies the palate. Cheers widmer. I don’t care what anyone says y’all can brew good beers, except for that hefeweizen.

boFNjackson (4192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Tap @ Hood River Hops Fest... Poured amber with an off-white/beige-ish head. Chewy, full bodied with herbal hop characters. Mild yeast esters with hints of earthy leafy hops, malt, and had a clean finish.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2011
bottle. tawny brown body, fine-bubbled tan head. pale and mild toast-focused nose with lightly aromatic grassy / wet / resinous hops but the wet cardboard and bready / toasty red apple malt mostly overpowers the hops. medium-light body; medium hop bitterness; bit crunchy / toasty brown malts; red apple skin sweetness late. simple, sweet, out of balance and a bit messy.
