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.

jbruner (2138) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours a clear copper color on tap with thin, off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops, and sweet pale malts, but all kind of faint until it warms up. Taste is more bitter than sweet, but citrus is still there. Decent, but nothing special.

SDalkoholic (2124) - 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 (2039) - 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.
