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.

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle from Maruhn, Darmstad; marked Nov 20 12 (bottling date?)
Hazy amber color with small head. The aroma is caramel-forward, apparently sweet, with a fruity touch. Strong caramel flavor, with moderate residual sweetness; strong bitterness (although well blended in), with medium-strong resins, and bitter orange fruitiness.
Too caramelly for me, for an IPA, but a good beer overall, although it doesn’t seem very fresh.
