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.

brokensail (11532) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
A nice amber pour with a white head. Good floral and citrus peel hops, particularly orange peel. A bit of grass, some sweet bread, and a nice pine note. The flavor has a lot of pine and floral hop notes. Nice bitterness, mild bread sweetness, and a dry finish. Orange peel, a hint of grass, and a lightly herbal quality.

Zymurgeist2 (1104) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Fairly weak aroma of orange and malt. Clear copper with nice full white head and full lacing. Taste of dirty earth. Slight orange and malt in the background. With citrus and nice bitterness at the backend. Wonder if there is an issue with the line or age - thus does not have the bursting aspects of Falconer’s Flight when I have brewed with it.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle. Shiny amber color with a medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and piney hops, slightly citric and slightly stale. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, light fruitiness and piney and grapefruity hops leading to a pleasant bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Possibly a bit past its prime but still quite enjoyable.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with a decent white head. Toasted malty and faint herbal hoppy aroma with notes of citrus. Bready flavor with light citrus, some notes of sweaty armpit in the finish. Ok bitterness. Oily texture, hints of alcohol. Bottled in nov 2012, might be more interesting if fresh.
