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.

Easily my favorite in the Rotator series. This beer is why I prefer IPAs--appealing appearance and nose, very hoppy and a well-hidden elevated abv. Typical good product from Widmer Brothers.

12oz bottle from 6er. #6 in the rotator series, also appeared earlier in the series and this is very similar. Pours gold/amber, clear, thick white head. Crisp floral/ citrus hop aroma, taste is clear and crisp, really solid IPA

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate frothy white head. Nose is floral and hoppy. Taste has that bitterness to it, but tastes very clean and smooth. I like this as an IPA.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle. Darkest of these latest three rotator IPAs ... deep woody-amber. Rocky, gluey head. This has the barest of outdoorsy aromas; it drinks with a rich woodsiness of an English ale, with a little bit of an American hop kiss. Exceptionally well balanced with a big, rich malt backdrop. My kind of IPA. (#4859, 12/16/2012)

OD40oz (768) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - NOV 3, 2011
This was a damn good beer. Perfect looking when poured. Amber with tons of carbonation and a 1 inch tan head. Very hoppy aroma and taste.

What a nice surprise! Seemed like such a "generic" type of label and beer when I bought it in a variety pack. But a pleasant taste and easy IPA to drink and enjoy - just the right strength and finish. Will enjoy the rest in the case with my Hon.

Ótima IPA da serie rotator, essa feita em homenagem ao mestre cervejeiro Glen Falconer. Cor amarelo-ouro, com media formação de espuma e excelente aroma cítrico, bastante lupulada. Na boca, corpo médio, com amargor intenso, notas de frutas cítricas, manga, grapefruit, abacaxi e pinho, apresentando final seco e amargor agradável. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep copper hued brew with a dense but light khaki head. Nose of grapefruit and caramel. There is also fresh cut wood. The taste is brown sugar coated grapefruit with some pine on the back end. There is also a little hint of smoke, especially in the finish. This is a pretty nice sticky slightly sweet IPA. I like it.
