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.

DocLock (9348) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orange toward brownish copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head that dissipates quickly. The head is loud, and says, "Rotate these hops, douche bag." Whatever, head. Nose is bready dullish caramel malt, hops that are citric but don;t really "POP", but are pronounced nonetheless. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat sweet, orange marmaladey, somewhat floral, with a resiny IBU-heavy finish. This one is good, but not elite. The Falconer’s gets a bot overwhelmed by the malt here. In 99% of cases, the converse is true.

The head drops pretty quickly.. nice lacing ... decent cap... the brew is a hazed light amber. Nose has a good pungent hoppiness.. grapefruit zest and pine comb.. with an interesting tropical fruity profile... odd.. the malts seem a touch too high and even show some dark toast.... Big bitterness out of the gate.. the bitter bite blows things out of the water.. citrus and something that I associate with more tropical hops.... maybe some melon... but the flavor pretty much drops into the bitterness and trails on forever... some dry toasty malt presence shows on the finish with shelf warmth. Bitter --- hoppy --- bitter again ... seems thin with malts ... definitely one dimensional... A decent PNW IPA, but loses all the intricacies... I doubt I will buy this one again... odd and not that good... and certainly not very enjoyable.

SDalkoholic (2318) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle from Henry’s: Created a thick pillow of white head while the liquid was a sparkling clear golden color. In the aroma, my nose detects a lot of usage of hop pellets that give off the scents of a oily and buttery smell combined with some pine and citrus. The flavor is smooth and has notes of light citrus and earthy green hop pellets that give a well balanced bitter taste to the rest of the ingredients, particularly the malts and water. An excellent IPA that is easily quaffable and has some flavor to back it up.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
12oz bottle - A little more balance with this beer than the previous X-114 IPA. I don’t mind balance but I appreciate a hop-foward IPA too. The aroma is really floral, and the sweetness really amplifies the floral hop aspect. Flavor has a spicy malty/woody hop 1-2 punch going on. Some alcohol noticeable in the flavor but not out of control or anything. A nice IPA, but I did enjoy the X-114 more.

[Bottle] Amber/orange pour with a nice cap of white head. Piney hops and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is of resinous pine sap, caramel malts, rye and tropical fruits. Balanced flavor. Average mouthfeel. Tasting notes from 11/2011.
