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.

3fourths (9015) - 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.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1007) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 30, 2011
A single blended hop variety? Sounds nifty. Nice light amber. I get fresh berries and some mild citrus- orange and grapefruit- in the nose. Body is medium-thick, syrupy and smooth with a small carbonation presence. Sweet berry syrup flavor with a citra-pine bitterness that has moderate lingering. Good flavors, it could be a bit sweet and a bit thick for a single IPA style, I’d like a more refreshing version.

beerguy101 (5354) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Sampled on 9/26/2011. This IPA pours a medium to deep orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is floral and citrusy, with a touch of melon. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral. Medium bitterness with a nice hop bite. Decent carbonation. A nice balanced IPA, no big hops, no big malts, just a nice IPA with a nice hop bite. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, but lingering.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2011
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 (4221) - Arlington, 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 (1806) - 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 (2845) - 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.
