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.

On draft at Fremont Oktoberfest, Seattle, WA. Had to try it, new hop, new ipa so here goes. Nothing about this beer is awesome. Medium gravity, medium hop aroma, medium finish. The hop itself has tinges of passionfruit, a little candied orange aroma, and a piney aftertaste. Peaches and apricots make appearances in the flavor, but very little if any. A non-remarkable ipa, but worth a try just for the new hop varietal.

Cavie (3842) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a hazy orange color with a foamy beige head. Aroma is light hops, spicy notes and some fruit. Flavor is spicy hops, light fruit with a huge bitterness. Light burning sensation with a bitter finish.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 24, 2011
12 oz bottle. Clear bright amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, hay and herbs. Flavor is very bitter with a caramel and bready malt sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation and a slick, almost syrupy mouth feel. Nice beer to try out the new hop but I’m not a huge fan.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a quickly subsided head.

Aroma: Floral and citrus scents slight toffee.

Taste: Bitter piny hops juicy and earthy bitterness. A little soapy. Lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Thin prickly carb.

Overall: Meh. <--- My first reaction. I enjoyed the First Rotator IPA with Citra Hops. The aroma and body was lacking.

Fratto (2654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle from the Pioneer Majestic. Reddish orange pour with a big white head. Aroma is slightly toasty, very fruity, and just a little earth. Taste is some caramel, lots of earth, lots of biscuit, kinda pine, and a little dry spice. Great finish.

BK7 (748) - Turner, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle. Has a nice aroma and a satisfying bitterness at the end. A good IPA but not great.

bhensonb (11510) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear ruddy copper with a very transient whiteish head. Very floral aroma. Med body. Flavor is floral/citrus. Seems a bit light stone fruity. Malt is pretty well balanced out by the hop. Given the floral I’d vote ESB, but the malt level isn’t there. Very pleasant drink.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Sharp and snappy IPA without enough sweetness to balance it out. Rough bitterness, but not necessarily what I’d call harsh. Dry, peppery and bitter finish. Malts are toasted and crusty. Hops are nutty, resinous, woodsy and grassy. Not bad, but I didn’t like it nearly as much as the juicy X-114.

vyvvy (4133) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours clear copper with a smallish beige head. The aroma has bready caramel malts, peaches, pineapple, spice and lots of tropical hoppiness. Medium body with mildly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out with caramel malt that is sweeter than the aroma lets on & the hops of the aroma are there, but they are a bit overpowered by the malt. The finish has some hard mineral traits added in. This is a decent beer for the price.

Pours a clear copper body with a thin white head. Dry, piney hop bitterness with a nice citrus backing. Nice.
